Evangelism SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

In these five chapters of Thessalonians we have laid before us some of the basic doctrines of the Christian faith. I think we are aware of the fact that we are living in a time of religious confusion. Many Christians do not know what they believe. They do not know what the Scriptures teach in many areas. They do not know how to apply the truth of the…

Now we are going to discover some principles in the early church pattern of evangelism. The church is growing at a fantastic rate in the matter of days and weeks it is in the thousands. And all of this because of fantastic vital type of evangelism. It was the church reaching the world and it wasn't easy being a Christian. It wasn't just jump on the band wagon…

This series is built on two most important scriptures of the Bible. They are: The Great Commandment: Matt 22:37-39 and The Great Commission - Matt 28:19-20. There are 5 purposes defined for each of us in these two selections of verses that make up the totality of God's purposes in our lives individually and for the church collectively...


 
Fasting SERMON OUTLINES

by Ernest Easley

All right ... now that we've enjoyed a good meal ... I want to talk to you tonight about the lost art of Fasting! Last week we learned that there are several kinds of fasting. For instance .. there is a Normal fast. That's when you abstain from food for a certain amount of time. There is also a Partial Fast. That's when your fast is limited to certain kinds of food. Then there is an Absolute Fast. That's when you refuse food and drink. Then there is a Corporate Fast. That involves a group of believers. And the...

I do not come as a guru, professing to know everything about fasting. I do come with some experience, having read and studied it very deeply in order to be prepared to bring you this brief message. However, I could actually spend several weeks on this intriguing subject. Hopefully, I will give you enough now to whet your appetite so that you'll...

''Energized'' is all about being invigorated, refueled and fired up to live on mission. God has His hand on you individually and He desires to energize you. We must become the people who will pray with great faith: Come Holy Spirit, fill me, use me, guide me - let me be energized...


 
Giving SERMON OUTLINES

by Miles McPherson

When Pastor Miles was a child, his mother used to take him and his siblings to church each Sunday. Each child was given an envelope with a coin to put in the offering. This was simply a starter kit to tithing, as she was teaching her children to give. In this series, we have learned that God is the source of all good gifts and that He gives to us that we may be...

Stewardship through tithing did not begin with the Mosaic Law, but as a part of Abraham's faithfulness to God. Abraham was well before the law. Abraham was the picture of justification by faith that points directly to our faith in Christ. Abraham was not justified by the law, but by trusting God. It is through Abraham's faith that the first tithe was given. The principle…

by Jim Henry

Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For whatever measure you deal out to others, it will be dealt to you in return. I want to let it be clearly understood that I don't preach on stewardship every Sunday. But I do believe that stewardship is as much a part of...


 
Prayer SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

Evidently the American people believe in prayer. A recent poll taken by the National Opinion Research Center in Chicago discovered these rather interesting facts. They discovered that 60% of the American people pray at least one time every day. They also discovered that 78% of the American people pray at least one time a week. They also found that only…

by Jeff Strite

A young boy was observed by a minister in church praying very fervently; but much to the preacher's surprise, he was also heard to say from time to time: "Tokyo, Tokyo, Tokyo." So preacher approached the boy after he had apparently finished his prayer and said, "Son, I was very pleased to see you praying so devoutly, but tell me, why did you keep…

by Adrian Rogers

Turn to Luke chapter eighteen and verse one. Luke chapter eighteen and verse one. I want us to think on this subject, IT'S FORCE, IT'S COURSE AND IT'S SOURCE. (I believe that Christians fail more in the prayer life than in any other area and I believe dear friend, I don't have a failure and you don't have a failure in other areas that is not really somehow...


 
Studying the Bible SERMON OUTLINES

by Eddie Snipes

In this modern church age, it seems that the main problem facing the church is a lack of knowledge of God's word. Solomon once stated that there is nothing new under the sun. The problem we face today in the church is identical to the situation the Bible addresses in Hosea 4:6-9 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 7 " The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. 8 They eat up the sin of My people; They set their heart on their iniquity. 9 And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds.

by Ron Dunn

We're talking about interpreting the Bible for yourself. And we've already looked at the six basic principles of interpretation. And today I want us to simply look at the study of the Bible...reading the Bible and what the Bible means to us and how we ought to read it. In 1 Peter 1, beginning with verse 23 through chapter 2:3...''For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is through the living and abiding Word of God. For all flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.

Worship SERMON OUTLINES

by Jesus Culture Resources

''Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.'' - Howard Thurman. Think about the main thing that inspires you. What is it that really makes you tick, that moves you to action? Humans are passionate beings. That's how God made us. When something catches our eye that...

by Jim Perdue

Tonight, we continue our Sunday evening series entitled Accidental Pharisees. If we are not careful we can worship our traditions instead of worshipping Jesus. That's what Pharisees do. They love their rules, their standards, their traditions, and their preferences more than they love God. Jesus recognized this and would never let them get away with it. Here's a perfect example in Mark...

by William Wyne

As we study scriptures week after week, privately and corporately, I think we would have to agree that God delights in being worshipped. There are a plethora of things that God is pleased with and delights in. I truly believe that worship toward Him from creatures below is like a maestro directing a perfect symphony, and the maestro hears all of the instruments are...
