MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. SERMON OUTLINES

by Roger Thomas

In my reading of the Old Testament recently, I have been impressed with two similar stories. Both are examples of courage against the odds. Martin Luther King, Jr. knew both of these stories well and often cited the second as a model for his life and legacy. The first is from Esther 4. The young Jewish maiden had only recently been selected as the new wife of the Persian…

INTRO: I want you to take your Bible's now this morning, and I want you to be finding your place at Acts chapter 2 if you will. As I mentioned last week, this morning we are going to begin a short study from Acts chapter 2 that I want to entitle, "The Church Member Of My Dreams." What is a church member supposed to look like? What is a church member supposed to…

The book of Leviticus has gotten to be quite a surprise. I shared with you how the first time I tried to read through the book of Leviticus and it was really tough. When you get the bigger picture and when you see that what we read in the book of Leviticus gives us pictures of New Testament truths and truth which can be applied to our lives today, then the book takes...

There are certain things that are so powerful that once we've seen them we're never the same again. I remember the first time I really saw a mountain. I had already seen mountains many times but I had seen them on TV, or in paintings, or in photographs. But there came a day when my eyes were opened to see what mountains are really all about. It happened when…

Introduction: A strong leader knows how to receive the grace of God and build a strong spirit that will give strength for the leadership journey. God will grant capacity for the journey, power to resist attacks, and strength to fulfill the vision. Today's leader lives with 1 Corinthians 15:58. "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the…

INTRO: Israel's choice to once again drift away from God made it necessary for God to act in such a way as to draw them back again. God would use two unlikely sources to speak to them ... the Moabites would be empowered by God to come against His own people in order to get their attention; and then God would choose a man who was considered "defective" by…

II Cor. 5:7 "We live by faith, not by sight." "Faith sees beyond the obvious." "You don't get to choose whether or not to have any problems; you do get to choose how you will approach them!" What was the difference in the spies? The requirements for leadership sere identical! Why a different response? God had led them there to give them the land of promise. God had already proven himself to their fathers and to them by redeeming them out of…

In 1955, Montgomery Alabama had a municipal law that required black citizens to ride in the back of the city's buses. On December 1st of that year, Mrs. Rosa Parks, a forty-two year old seamstress boarded a city bus and sat in the fifth row (the first row of seats in the "black section" of the bus) with three other black passengers. When some white men got on the bus, the driver…

It's what every home needs. It's what our nation needs. It's what every church needs. It's what every business needs. You say, "Pastor, what's that?" The kind of leadership God blesses! And it is that kind of leadership that I want to talk to you about today: The Leadership God Blesses. So whether you are a business owner or manager or a parent raising children, or a community...

My entrance into the ministry was not as a pastor. My introduction to ministry came when I was asked to become a minister to students. Incidentally, to this day I still have a tremendously deep love for students. I know first hand the opportunity that a church has to impact a generation to come if it really pours its energy into reaching these young people. Before...
