HUMILITY SERMON OUTLINES

by Daniel Rodgers

As we begin the message this morning, I want to once again repeat my opening remarks concerning humility, as we compare it to a hidden jewel. I have entitled our series The Hidden Jewel of Humility because humility, though of great value, like a jewel, is something rarely discovered, but when found, becomes a prized possession to its owner...

INTRO: One of the greatest statements in the Bible is said by Jonathan, the son of King Saul. In 1 Samuel 23:17 he said to David who had been his father's enemy; ''I will be second to you.'', the rarest man in the orchestra of God is the saint who knows how to play second fiddle well! It is the humble man who can recognize who God really is and who...

Introduction: Humility. What comes to your mind when you hear the word ''humility?'' Humble. When you say, ''So and so is really a humble person,'' what do you mean? How did you come to that conclusion? God honors those who have humility, so how do you get humility? First Peter 5:5 makes it pretty clear that we are responsible to put on the garment of humility. If you honor...

Woody Allen is credited with saying, ''If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.'' We could add to it, ''If you want to hear him laugh even louder, tell him how much you know.'' Just because it's true, however, doesn't make it easy to accept. It's hard to admit that we do not know as much as we think we know. And we certainly aren't in control of as much as we'd like...

It has been said that the greatest of all differences between ancient and modern morality is not the introduction of new virtues but the changing of the order of the old ones. In this sphere, as in other spheres, Christ has put down the mighty from their seats. He has taken the little one of ancient ethics and made it as it were a thousand. And so it is said our Christian morality...

The greatest plague on earth is pride. More people miss heaven for pride than any other sin. Wanting our own way is how God described our pitiful condition as lost ones. Isaiah 53: 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. (NKJV) Pride was the first sin as Lucifer challenged God...

INTRODUCTION: It is said that boxer Muhammad Ali was once on a plane when the stewardess came by and asked him to fasten his seatbelt. Ali said, ''I'm superman and superman don't need no seatbelt.'' The stewardess replied ''Superman don't need no airplane either, please fasten your...

Now if you have your Bibles, turn with me to Philippians, chapter 2, and remember that the theme of the Epistle to the Philippians is JOY, the Christian's JOY. Joy comes from unity among God's people. Unity comes from humility. That is the only way to have harmony one among another. If we ''stand up for our rights'' and look out after...

INTRODUCTION: The Apostle Peter, humbled and restored, now urges believers to ''cast their cares on Christ.'' There was a time that his exertion of pride had cast him down, but now in humility, the Lord had lifted him up. As I read this text a major questions comes to mind, ''Was there ever a morning that the crowing of the rooster did not remind Peter of his pride...

I'm not too insecure in my masculinity to admit that I love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. In fact, I'm not too insecure to state it is my favorite novel. It is, of course, a great love story, but the genius is in the title of the novel and how it applies to each character of the book. I chose this scene of Darcy's first proposal to Elizabeth because of how it...

Around this time of year it is common for thoughts to turn to issues of world peace. We look at warring conflicts in places like Syria and the Central African Republic and wonder about the possibility of ceasing hostilities. We hear stories repeated of World War II soldiers in Germany pausing from firing their guns to sing...

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...

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...

The greatest light may enter into the darkest places. We may find the choicest flowers blooming where we least expected them. Here was a Gentile, a Roman, a soldier-a soldier clothed with absolute power-and yet a tender master, a considerate citizen, a lover of God! Let no man, therefore, be despised because of his...

n Jim Collins' book, Good to Great, his research discovered that the highest level of leadership, what he terms "Level 5" leaders, were marked by determination and an attitude of humility.In fact, if I were to name you the CEOs of the 11 companies that were featured as good-to-great between 1980 and 1995, most of you would...

When Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's fast food stores died in January 2002, old friends, strangers and employees dressed in Wendy's uniforms were among the thousands of mourners who waited in line for more than an hour to pay their respects to him. Dave Thomas began pitching his burgers and fries in television...

Some Christians have developed the habit of reading one chapter of Proverbs per day. If you do that, you can read the entire book in one month (if there are 31 days in that month). Proverbs is a book about wisdom. ''Wisdom is more a who than a what.'' The ''who'' is Jesus. He lived out the wisdom of Proverbs...

Ronald Reagan was a favorite of mine. He served as President as, hopefully, most of you know, and also before he was President, he was Governor of California. He was Governor of California from 1967 to 1975. Ronald Reagan shares a story about going to Mexico City when he was Governor of California. And he gave a...

As you find your place I want to tell you about a man who had been invited to a banquet and was given the honor of sitting at the head table. But he was rather nervous because he was a shy person and a very poor conversationalist and this banquet was going to be filled with prominent and important people...
