SACRIFICE SERMON OUTLINES

by Daniel Rodgers

This morning, I want to discuss with you two very important subjects; stewardship and sacrifice. We all understand what stewardship is; it is to be a steward or caretaker of something. To sacrifice means to give up something, usually at great expense or cost to ourselves. Keep in mind; God has never asked the unsaved world to sacrifice anything, but He has said that we, as believers, are to be willing...

The true story is told of a banquet where a famous religious leader found himself seated next to an extremely beautiful woman who was wearing a gown with a perilously low neckline. He introduced himself to her… and then offered her an apple. She was a little surprised, but he explained with a smile, ''Please do take it, Madame. It was only after Eve...

Our verse for this series has been Deuteronomy 26. ''There God said to the children of Israel, 'When you come into the land take some of the first fruits of all that you produced. Put them in a basket, place the basket before the Lord your God and bow down before Him.'' And that's what we are going to do tonight. Now, the text for today is 2 Corinthians chapter 8..

Last Sunday morning we saw from the words of Peter that as believers we are priests and as priests we are to offer spiritual sacrifices. As we continue that thought I point out that Peter speaks of the believer as a "holy" priests (2:5), and "royal" priests" (2:9). As a holy priesthood we see our purpose. The word "holy" speaks of that which is sacred. The…

If you and I know Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Lord, THEN, does it not then not make sense, THAT WE, whom He came into this world to save, to redeem us to Himself as we're told in Titus 2:14- ''...who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people''-does it not...

Let's open in our Bibles to continue our study of James by opening to Hebrews 11. Now isn't that interesting? That should get your attention. We are looking this morning as we continue through the book of James at the attitude that these first century Christians had that made them so powerful. I think that in order to understand the words of James we have to see the background...

Message Truth: The scripture teaches us that Jesus is not so impressed by the amount we may give, but He is interested in our heart, motive, and passion. (Mat 26:6-13 NIV) While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, {7} a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. {8} When...

This morning we're continuing our series of messages through the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. So take God's infallible word and join me in the book of Ecclesiastes. What we find in Ecclesiastes is the testimony of King Solomon. Like some of you, Solomon set out on a Quest for the Best! He looked at everything he had accumulated and accomplished and realized that none of those things had brought...

Very few preachers, or at least those that I have had the privilege of either reading behind or listening to, have ever combined verse 3 with verses 1 and 2. However, verse one deals with what it takes to make a suitable sacrifice of our bodies to the Lord. Verse 2 deals with what it takes to make a solid separation from the life of the world. Verse 3 deals with what it takes to maintain...

Now, friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me to Genesis 3:21 and we are beginning a study of the wonderful truth of Sacrifice For Sin, or what Sacrifice means in the Bible, what the meaning of the Blood is, in the Bible, and the meaning of the Cross. We find it all through the Bible. Someone has well said that there are two threads that run through the Bible. One is the golden thread of the Coming of the Lord, and the other is the scarlet...

One of the subtle ironies in the not so subtle movie, "Dead Man Walking" was that at the scene of the man's execution by lethal injection, the movie's producer was careful to show how technicians used standard surgical preparation to sterilize the site of the injection. Now for most people sterilizing the injection site is a....

The story of Abel' s sacrifice to God spans the Bible as a testimony of true faith. As we study Abel's act of sacrificial obedience, we learn some important principles concerning our giving to God. Specifically, there are seven reasons God requires sacrifice in our lives. They are: Not: Before there was organized religion, the law, the Bible or the...

Parents try to teach their children to say "Thank you" but it doesn't always work. I heard about one mother who went to the drugstore to pick up a prescription. She had her five year-old son with her. When the pharmacist gave her the medicine he handed the boy a piece of candy. "What do you say to the nice man," the mother said to her son. The little boy quickly…

Value is a word that we throw around in conversations daily. It is by definition: the relative worth, utility, or importance of something.If something is not worth anything, it has no value.Things that don't cost us anything will have little or no value to us.Buffet example - no cruises for me.Jesus said there would be a cost to...

As we reach part 6 of this series, we turn to the theme of sacrifice. I do not mean animal sacrifice, though Jesus never spoke against it. I refer instead to the larger issue of personal sacrifice in reference to living a life pleasing to God, rather than one pleasing to ourselves. When Jesus addresses themes of sacrifice, we tend to turn a...

One thing we must always keep in mind when studying Genesis or any Old Testament scripture is that though it is a historical account, these events are used by God to point us to His plan and the redemption of sin through Christ. Jesus is the central theme of the Bible - both Old and New Testaments. If you lose sight of this, you will..

After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, ''Abraham!'' And he said, ''Here I am.'' 2 He said, ''Take 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 Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his....

I want you to take your copy of God's Word now this morning and be finding your place at Luke chapter 2 one last time if you would. We have been in series of sermons for this Christmas season that we have entitled, "Mary's Christmas." And what we've done in these sermons is this -- we've looked at Christmas from Mary's point of...
