LUKE SERMON OUTLINES

What is life's greatest tragedy? It seems like every day we encounter tragedies from all parts of the world. We pick up the newspaper or we watch on television and we see in Houston, Texas, a mother kills her own children—five of them. What a great tragedy that is. Or we hear the reports out of countries afar off and we read about the terrible conditions in...

INTRODUCTION: Authorship - Luke, was a physician who came under the influence of Paul just as Mark came under the influence of Peter. His medical knowledge is reflected in many expressions used both in his gospel and in the Book of Acts which also came from his pen. It has been suggested that Luke might well have undertaken his medical studies at the...

PRAYER: HOW IT WORKS And Why It Sometimes Doesn’t. Prayer is a family privilege. Luke 11:2/ 1 Peter 3:12/ Proverbs 28:9/ John 16:23-24. The Lord’s Prayer is a model to follow, not a formula to recite! Luke 11:1-4 & Matthew 6:9-13. Persistence pays. 1. An instant answer is a rare answer. Matthew 26:36-46/ Daniel 10:12-14/ Luke 11:5-13 & 18:1-8. 2. Persistence is...

The Gospels record Christ's ministry to the four groups of people then and now in the world. Matthew speaks to the Jews and the deeply religious of our day. The Jews who loved the Scriptures and the prophecies of God. They would only listen to one of their own. Mark spoke to the Romans. These were the leaders and leadership and action impressed...

Adages! Adages are little maxims, little pithy sayings, that tell us how life works. They're little nuggets of truth. They're little proverbs. And we use adages all the time. And we have adages that have just been woven into our life and into our society and into our culture; things from long, long ago. I'm going to lead us in some adages, and I want to test you to see...

Introduction: Luke was a doctor (Col 4:14). We easily forget that the medical profession has been around a long time. Consider a few of the New Testament references: Jesus says, "They that are whole have no need of a physician," shows that there were physicians in Galilee (Mt 9:12; Mk 2:17; Lk 5:31). In Nazareth Jesus quotes the proverb: "Physician, heal...

Raising children is the hardest job I've ever had! Raising children has been more challenging and more consuming than pastoring Baptist people. I remember as a young parent of three reading one day where the Psalm 127.3-5 said, ''Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward,'' thinking, ''Reward? A reward for...

Jesus knew that: Everyone wants a Savior, few can handle a Lord. We would always focus more on this world than heaven. We would always focus more on ourselves than others. We would prefer to be blessed than to be used. So, what does "taking up our cross" mean? It's simply a picture of self-denial. It's a daily decision, not a one time prayer. It's accepting...

The story of Zechariah and Elizabeth is one of great faith and hope. We find their account recorded in Luke chapter 1. Verse 5 provides the setting for the story. The reference to "the days of Herod" reminds us that this was a dark time in the world. Herod the Great was an evil man (see Matthew 2) and a paranoid tyrant who held on to his throne at all...

Picture in your minds three crosses silhouetted on a hill just outside the city wall of Jerusalem. Up above the ominous clouds projected the kind of day it would be. On the center cross was Jesus Christ, the Son of God. On either side of him were two thieves who were deserving of the punishment they were receiving. I call these crosses the cross of redemption...
