ABRAHAM SERMON OUTLINES

by Stan Coffey

I would like to begin in Romans Chapter 4. Tonight we are going to begin reading with verse 18 and keep in mind that the apostle Paul has been holding out the life of a man named Abraham as an example of one was made right with God, justified because He believed God. He was justified by faith in God. So in Romans Chapter...

We are tracing the scarlet thread through the Bible on these Wednesday nights. And that scarlet thread is the blood covenant that God made with man. A blood covenant was an unbreakable promise. In fact...when two people made a blood covenant, it was dissolved only by death. God did more than cut a deal with man, He cut a covenant with man! The scarlet...

I never knew before that God ever needed a friend - I need companionship. I need advice and council and correction. I need to be cheered and comforted. I often feel lonely - I often miss my way of life. Often I commit myself to rash ill-considered steps. I often hurt both myself and other men with me. And therefore I need near me a faithful friend, a friend to speak to me in time...

Abraham is the loftiest character of the Bible, but for that very reason he is the loneliest, even as the loftiest mountains are the most isolated and solitary. In his great oration delivered at the unveiling of the Lincoln Memorial at Hodgenville, Kentucky, President Wilson said of Abraham Lincoln: ''I have read many biographies of Lincoln; I have sought out with the greatest interest the...

What did Jesus ask people to do more than anything else? He said, ''Follow me! To follow is to go on a journey. Faith is a journey with Jesus. Our faith journey, like Abraham's faith journey, takes us into new and unfamiliar territory. The Apostle Paul sums up the Christian walk in 2 Corinthian 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight...

A recent Barna Report showed that most professing Christians in this country live in the South. 42% of evangelicals in this country live in the South, while 24% live in the West, 24% live in the Midwest, and only 10% live in the Northeast. Barna found that those in the South are most likely to be involved and, in most cases, those in the Northeast are least likely to be involved...

INTRODUCTION: In Gal. 3:1-5, Paul shows the Galatian believers, from their own experience, that they were justified by faith and not by works of the law. Paul now defends that doctrine from Scripture. Paul turns from subjective experience to the objective evidence of the Word of God. We never judge the Scriptures by our experience; we...

A little over a fourth of Genesis is dedicated to telling Abraham's story. And much of the rest of the Old Testament testifies to his importance (it's always Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob). And the reason Abraham is so important to the people of Old Testament is because God began His covenant with Israel thru him. Now, this relationship...

Paul's letter is addressed to the saints at Rome - and of course, his message is to us, as well. In the very first verse he asks a rhetorical question (read vs. 1). The ''what shall we say, then'' part has to do with his earlier discussion in the preceding chapter - that salvation is not just for the circumcision--the Jews, but also for the uncircumcised--the Gentles...

This is somewhat repetitious but I want you to be sure to understand how the book of Genesis is laid out. There are two main divisions in Genesis, the first 11 chapters. Then you have chapters 12 to the conclusion. The first 11 chapters have to do with the history of the human race in general. There you have in those chapters four great historical events. There is the creation, which explains to us where we came from. There is...

As I've shared with you all before, your pastor was at one time a used-car salesman. I know, talk about a Damascus Road conversion! You meet a lot of people selling cars, and you experience a lot of different things. I've got lots of interesting stories, but there's one I don't think I'll ever forget. I had this customer come in one...

Faith is: dead to doubts, dumb to discouragements, blind to impossibilities. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:7, "We walk by faith, not by sight." Faith becomes like Spiritual eyes. That is, we do not live in this world through natural powers, but by the supernatural powers from God's Spirit within us. AMEN...

God has a plan for each person's life. Pride kills our ability to follow God's plan. 1 Peter 5:5 and James 4:6 warn us that God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud. From Genesis to Revelation this warning is echoed over and over again: God hates pride. Proverbs 16:18 - 19 warns us that pride leads to destruction and a...

This text introduces two men who began a journey together. They had a common goal but unfortunately were separated from the one another. One climbed a mountain to a place where the atmosphere was clean and pure, where vision was unlimited. His companion descended into the plains of Sodom where opportunities for a...

The word Faith carries many different meanings. First, it means ''belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something and many times without logical proof.'' In fact, true faith will defy logic. Faith also denotes a 'system of religious belief or the group of people who adhere to it.''For the last 5 weeks, our messages from the...

I want you to take your Bibles this morning and be finding your place at Hebrews chapter 11 again if you would. We are continuing this morning in a series of messages that we began four weeks ago on the mighty men and wonderful women that are listed for us in what has been called, ''God's Hall of Faith...

Nothing shapes your life more than the commitments you choose to make. Those commitments determine the course of your life more than your abilities or family background or circumstances. We become whatever we commit ourselves to.Robert Moffat became a pioneer missionary to South Africa in...

Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, ''Abraham!'' And he said, ''Here I am.'' 2 Then He said, ''Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.'' 3 So...

What have you set your heart and sights on for your life? The direction you are looking in is where you are heading; and wherever your heart is set there you will find your commitments of time and resources.A young man once found a $2 bill in the road. From that time on he never lifted his eyes from the ground when....
