Sermon on Kindness: Reflecting God's Heart in a Broken World

 "Kindness: Reflecting God's Heart in a Broken World"

The beautiful quality of kindness. As followers of Jesus, we are called to embody His kindness and extend it to the world. Our journey will take us through the origin of kindness, the example of God's kindness, biblical instruction, the fruit of the Spirit, and even kindness toward our enemies. Let us delve into the depths of God's kindness and learn how to reflect it in our lives.

How to practice kindness?

Be sensitive to the needs of others. (Philippians 2:3-4).

Kindness begins by observing what is happening in other people's lives.

Are you too self-involved to be kind to others? Be supportive. Build people up. (Romans 14:19).

Kindness should start at home, but unfortunately it is often overlooked.

I. "The Origin of Kindness" (Psalm 100:5)

Kindness finds its origin in the heart of our Creator. Psalm 100:5 reminds us that the Lord is good, and His kindness endures forever. Everything we know about kindness flows from God's character. He is the ultimate source of goodness, mercy, and love. To understand kindness, we must begin with God.

II. "The Example of God's Kindness" (Ephesians 2:7)

In Ephesians 2:7, we see a vivid example of God's kindness. He demonstrated His immeasurable riches of grace in His kindness towards us through Christ Jesus. God's kindness was revealed in the sacrifice of His Son for our salvation. His kindness is a gift to us, and we, in turn, are called to share it with others.

III. "Biblical Instruction on Kindness" (Ephesians 4:32)

The Bible provides clear instructions on how we should manifest kindness. Ephesians 4:32 tells us to be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other just as God forgave us in Christ. This kindness is expressed through love, compassion, and forgiveness, creating harmony in our relationships.

IV. "Goodness as the Fruit of the Spirit" (Galatians 5:22)

Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit, as mentioned in Galatians 5:22. When the Holy Spirit resides in us, we bear the fruit of kindness, which is evident in our actions and interactions with others. Kindness is not merely an external act; it flows naturally from a transformed heart.

V. "Kindness toward Enemies" (Romans 12:20)

One of the most remarkable aspects of kindness is its application even towards our enemies. Romans 12:20 instructs us to show kindness to our enemies, heaping burning coals on their heads. This biblical kindness has the power to transform hearts and mend broken relationships.
