PERSEVERANCE SERMON OUTLINES

by Stan Coffey

Today we continue to talk about God's Olympics. Two weeks ago we began this series talking about God's Olympics and we began looking at the passages of Scripture that deal with crowns. These crowns that Jesus will one day give to us when we stand before Him are like gold medals. They are the ultimate reward, the ultimate achievement. And the Bible says that...

One of the greatest high school athletes in Louisiana went on to become one an All-American tight end at LSU. Then he went on to star as an All-Pro tight end for the St. Louis Cardinals back in the Seventies. But if I were to mention his name there is probably one event that has shaped his life. His name is Jackie Smith, who is considered one of the great tight ends of history. But in one Super Bowel with the...

Steadfastness! That is a good word. Let us turn to Luke 9:62. These are the words of Jesus. I'd rather know what JESUS has to say than to know anything else in the world. Here our Lord says, ''No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.'' Jesus here is talking to Christians who ''look back.'' Back to what? Back to the old life! Back to...

Perhaps the single most memorable day of my ministry was the first Sunday of December 1981. I preached two worship services that morning as our church began its worship of the Christmas season. As soon as church was over I made the two and a half hour drive to University Hospital in Birmingham to visit with one of the men in our church who was to undergo open heart surgery the next morning...

The biggest challenge for most people is not the knowledge of right and wrong but the courage to do what is right! It is not easy doing what is right, especially when other people pressure us to do what is wrong - but the sweet reward of doing what is right can have powerful effects in our own life and in the lives of others...

Truly we live in troubled and turbulent times. Environmentally alone, we have had our share of shake ups over the past few weeks. An earthquake that was felt all across the northeastern portion of the United States and then Hurricane Irene that has pulled down power lines and blown down trees and damaged homes from the outer banks of North Carolina to New...

PERSEVERANCE - Definition - ''the ability to continue a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.'' THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY FOR PERSEVERANCE 1. Everything meaningful or good that we do in this life will be opposed by at least one of three...

Choose the imperishable. See the invisible. Do the impossible. We must see with the eye of faith, seeing the invisible, seeing in the Spirit God's dream for our life. God desires to commune with our spirit. He desires to speak to us clearly. We need to listen to His voice and trade our plan for our life for God's plan for our life. Helen Keller was once asked what would be worse than being blind. Her reply was ''To have...

The church at Smyrna is the second church that Jesus addresses in Revelation Chapter 2. It is one of two churches out of the seven which receives only praise and no criticism from Christ. (Philadelphia is the other.) This church can be characterized by three Ps: Pressure, Poverty, Persecution. We know very little about the beginning of the church, but we do know its...

Every so often something happens that shakes us to our foundations. It could be an illness, or an accident, the loss of a job, or a relationship that breaks apart and leaves us alone and confused. That's when we wonder what lies beneath the surface of our lives. Is there a foundation? What is it? Can I really build my life on it? Today's Scripture in our series from Colossians is...

Today's message is on Perseverance - something all of us need to remain devoted to Christ. Without perseverance we will find ourselves constantly running away from difficulties.Jesus came to save us from our sins, yes, but also to set us free from the hurtful things that can nag at us all of our lives and rob us of lasting joy...

by Patrick Edwards

This, church, is the wisdom of the world; it is the wisdom of man. Your success in life, your joy in life, your prosperity in life, everything you need simply lies within. Channel and harness that inner strength, that power of I am, and you'll be able to overcome every obstacle and challenge that lies in your way. If you want...

We are continuing our study of the book of Ruth today. If you're reading through the Bible, Ruth almost seems out of place. Because it's this tiny little book, sandwiched right between these big, epic books about the nation of Israel. So right before it is the book of Judges, which is about these military leaders that God raised up...

Today our nation is at war—and when I say we are at war, I'm not just talking about the war in Iraq an Afghanistan, I'm talking about war here in our own country—the murders and assaults—the killing of the innocent unborn children, the tearing down of our values...it is dangerous out there.But I would remind you, we have an Anchor of the...

Fallen Condition Focus: We don't believe that the steadfast love of the Lord endures forever. We think his love is conditional, that it will only last as long as we are ''good''. We are afraid that it might not last forever, we are afraid that we can exhaust God's love, that God will only ''put up with us for so long.'' We are afraid that we...

Final words are important. Oftentimes they communicate things of first importance. The last thing said is often the one thing remembered. Parent when the child walks out the door. That last instruction or encouragement. Parents to the babysitter before they walk out the door on their date night. Coach to the QB before he disappears for the...
