ENCOURAGEMENT SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

Nighttime is a time when decisions are made. Sometimes the nighttime is a difficult time. Sometimes we wrestle with things in the nighttime and it's not easy. The nighttime can be a delightful time because many times through the difficulties and the decision making of the nighttime, it becomes a time when we have...

Paul described his work among the Thessalonians as, "encouraging, comforting, and urging you to live lives worthy of God" (2:12). But Paul and his colleagues also needed encouragement (3:6-7). In fact, everyone needs encouragement...

Do you ever get discouraged? Don't answer that question because I know the answer before you even answer. Of course you do, because you are human. And I want to tell you what to do with discouragement today. Actually I want to talk to you on the subject of encouragement and the god of all encouragement...

Every believer needs the encouragement of others. God has designed His church in such a way that we are to give and receive this special ministry from one another. Today we will see this being played out in the life of the Apostle Paul...

One day, God was looking down at the earth and saw all of the evil that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to earth to check it out. So he called one of his best angels and sent him to earth for a time. When the angel returned he told God that yes, it was bad on earth. In fact, 95% was bad and 5% was good...

There's a guy in the Bible who was an encourager, like many of you are. He's not as brilliant as Paul, nor as bold as Peter and yet his running mates gave him a name. Really not his name, for his parents had named him Joseph, but his friends called him Barnabas. The name of Barnabas means ''son of exhortation...

The name Onesiphorus means ''benefit-bringing or profit-bearing.'' I wonder how Onesiphorus' mother knew at the time, the importance of his name and how much he would later live up to his name? I believe the Lord told her. Do you remember when John the Baptist was born? There were some who wanted...

Everybody needs encouraging. We need encouraging for our daily tasks as well as for special responsibilities and there just never seems to be enough encouragers to meet this need. I believe encouragement is a hidden power that people don't realize they have...

Jesus Christ was the most encouraging person to ever live. Should not those of us who follow Him be encouragers? Give it! Encouragement doesn't have to be earned. Praise does. Encouragement energizes us. Give it and keep on giving it...

Words. The power of our words is set out in the book of Proverbs as having positive or negative power. You already know how powerful words are. We can use our words to bring joy or sorrow, healing or hurt, discouragement or encouragement. Proverbs says words are like a hammer, a fire, a cup of cold water on a hot day...

Maybe you remember Naomi. She had her name changed to Marah because her life had been bitter. If there is one predominant word that would describe the feeling I find among pastors and church workers across America, it is the word discouragement. America needs to be encouraged...

Head, who just played the piano, Melissa, please come up here and talk with me. Melissa is a very, very unusual person, and likely, there is something about her very different from everybody here today. Most of us here know our exact birthdays, right? You know your exact birthday. Melissa doesn't know that. I want you to...

After learning the history of some of these men and women, I clearly see that God is not limited by circumstances, but He is limited by unbelief. We have record of men and women that simply believed God against all odds. God wants us to believe Him today, just as these men...

by Jerry Branch

And what we've seen so far for us to do that is that we MUST VISIBLY show the Love of Jesus Christ not just inside the four walls of our church, but more importantly it involves us LETTING Christ reign in us, or be the full-time Manager of our lives, and in doing so, then we will in fact show Him wherever we go whether that be in our...

One of the lessons we all learn in life is that it is fairly easy to start something…it is much harder to finish it. Most people have unfinished projects around their home. Projects that were good ideas, needed to be done, would make life more efficient and easier but are still unfinished. Many of us know what it is like to start a new...

Please turn to 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2. We're going to finish chapter 2 tonight, verses 13 through 17.Now let me ask you a question. See if anybody knows history. I know we've got a history teacher in here, so he might know this. What is the state song of the State of Kansas? Does anybody know? What's that...

The show 911, snowmobilers confident and content until the ice caved in. Had faith in the ice but it wasn't strong enough to hold them. On the other hand I was in upper Michigan a few years ago. I was invited to walk out on the ice. This South Georgia boy was skeptical. I tiptoed out. Make me lighter...
