Alone But Not Lonely

By: Dr. Bishop J. M. Kamiri

Here's a summary of the sermon

The sermon is based on John 16:5-8, where Jesus tells his disciples that he will be leaving them, but will send them a Helper, the Holy Spirit, to be with them always. Loneliness is defined as feeling empty or left out, and is a common experience for many people.

The sermon highlights that loneliness is not the same as solitude, which is a choice to be alone, whereas loneliness is often beyond our control. Loneliness is referred to in the Bible and is experienced by heroes such as Moses, Job, Nehemiah, and Elijah, and even by Jesus on the cross when he cried out to God, "Why have you forsaken me?"

The sermon identifies some of the causes of loneliness, including childhood development, disappointments, unaffectionate parents, marriage disagreements, and unanswered prayers. Ways of preventing loneliness include reading the Bible and engaging in prayer.

In conclusion, the sermon emphasizes that God is always with us, even in the midst of our loneliness. Just as God was with Adam, providing him with a companion, and with Jesus, sending the Holy Spirit to his disciples, God is also with us in our times of need. The sermon encourages people to take comfort in the promise that God will never leave us nor forsake us, and to seek support in the Bible and prayer during times of loneliness.
