SERMON ON THE MOUNT SERMON OUTLINES

by Adrian Rogers

Would you find again the beatitudes? Matthew Chapter 5, we're calling these the keys to the kingdom. And these are statements that Jesus Christ has made, and He begins each one of them with the word blessed. The word blessed is almost hard to translate. We could say happy, but it means more than happy. It means fulfilled. It means with joy. It means...

There was a certain church that always served coffee after the sermon. The pastor asked a little boy if he knew why they served the coffee. The little boy replied, "It is to get the people wide awake before they drive home." I must confess that I have heard a few sermons to nearly put me to sleep. I have no doubt that I have preached some that put people to...

Have you ever given much thought about how it was before you became a Christian? I mean, most of us, before we were saved, suffered very little opposition from others. We may have had a disgruntled boss, or a cantankerous relative, but that was about it. But the minute we became a Christian, things began to change. People began to view us a little...

A little four year-old boy was wanting to memorize John 3:16. John 3:16 is probably the most recognized verse in the Bible. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Well, this little guy, he was only 4 years old, and so he couldn't read. So he was going by what he...

We are a culture obsessed with purity. Products for sale often boast of "having nothing added" or "100% pure" etc. The goal of the computer industry is to try and make a "pure" chip. They have even used outer space to grow purer crystals. Fruit drinks are advertised as having 100% pure fruit drink, no added sugar or other additives. Wrigley's spearmint gum...

We are going to look at Matthew and I want us to turn to Matthew Chapter 6. One of the questions that people ask is, "What is God like?" You know that is an important question because if you are to know God, if you are to have a personal relationship with God, if you are to pray to God then it is important to know what God is like. One of the most important...

Mark Twain once said this about the Bible: ''I have no problem with those parts of the Bible I don't understand. It's those parts of the Bible I do understand that gives me fits.'' The passage that we are going to study certainly fits into that category. This passage illustrates something I bet most of you have never thought about before. One of the easiest...

Today we're beginning a sermon series on the Sermon on the Mount. It's in the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 5 through 7. I encourage you to read it. Here we have Jesus in his own words. His words aren't easy to take but they shine with light of Heaven. The Sermon on the Mount begins with a strange list of blessings. Jesus selects eight kinds of people...

Now from the Word of God .. I want to show you how you can live the satisfied life! A life of abundant joy and absolute peace! What some of you are breaking your neck to get .. God wants to give it to you! Satisfaction Guaranteed! That's what Jesus was talking about one day while sitting on top of a mountain! The secret to the satisfied life! That's how...

The Beatitudes are more than just good principles to live by, to reflect upon for us to give occasional notice. They are another of God's ways to get us to think of more than what is going on around and within us. Through the study of the Beatitudes, He gives more than we are capable of appreciating, and asks more than we think we are capable of doing. The Beatitudes...

There was a cross erected on Calvary long before there was a Garden of Eden ever made. So God opens his hand and satisfies the desire of every living creature. It is an interesting study to see how God specifically satisfies the desire and has made provision for every creature. I was visiting my folks in Arkansas a few weeks ago. We went out in the woods one day, and saw some robins. It was the time of the year when the...

A little boy was in a heated argument with his sister about who was going to get the last brownie. His mother overheard the loud discussion in the kitchen and came in to resolve the conflict. Her two children were obviously very distraught about getting that final treat. Sensing the need to teach a deeper truth, the mom asked her children that ever-relevant question...

For some of you who may not be familiar with the term “Lordship,” it simply means a person who is not only a believer, but is a believer who has submitted every area of his life to obeying Jesus Christ. The miserable people in the world are not people who are lost, but people who are saved and know the Lord but are still struggling with obedience...

by Jerry Vines

Jesus tells us how to have a happy life and when we come to verses 25- to the end of the 6th chapter we have a subject which I have entitled, "Don't Worry, Be Happy!" When we read these verses, it's like the Lord has been reading our mail. Two thousand years ago our Lord said these words, but they are as current and as contemporary...

Economics and prosperity are persistent themes in the Bible. They are consistent topics that come up in our own daily existence. We concern ourselves with preparing for a future and with more basic issues of survival from day to day. In the process, we worry over paying bills, purchasing at a discount, interest rates, insurance against major losses, protecting ourselves from those wanting to cheat or steal...

With the study of Hosea's prophecy, we enter upon 12 books known as the minor prophets. Remember the difference between the major and the minor prophets is not a matter of importance, but of the amount of material written. The name of the author, Hosea, like that of Joshua or Jesus means ''salvation''...

by Frank Pollard

This is a sermon for sinners. For sinners who want to be happy. When Jesus started His sermon with the words: ''Blessed are the poor in spirit,'' I am sure that every Palestinian mouth present dropped wide open. He was literally saying: ''Happy is the man who knows he is a spiritual failure.'' May it be quickly said that our Lord...

Amy Carmichael, the missionary to India, wrote: Sometimes when we read the words of those who have been more than conquerors, we feel almost despondent. I feel that I shall never be like that. But they won through step by step, by little bits of wills, by little denials of self,by little inward victories, by their faithfulness in very little things. They became what they are. No one sees these little...

Our attitudes are like magnets. They create a spiritual force field that attracts to us exactly that which flows from us. If I have an attitude of anger I will attract anger. If I have an attitude of insensitivity I will attract insensitivity. If I have an attitude that condones lying I will eventually reap the harvest that the seeds of lies produce. Our attitudes are like magnets. They attract to us exactly what flows from us...
