ASCENSION SERMON OUTLINES

This week, we are going to look at how the power of the Kingdom dramatically transforms the believer's life! The Book of Acts is an amazing story of how God's supernatural power enabled ordinary people to live extraordinary lives...

Jesus came down from heaven. Was born of a virgin. Lived a perfect life. Ministered among the people. Then He went to the cross and there on the cross He died for the sins of the world and for my sins and your sins. For about 40 days, Jesus in His resurrected body, walked upon this earth. At the conclusion of that the Bible tells us that He carried the disciples out to a little village called Bethany on the slopes of the Mount of Olives. From there, the Bible says that...

It is easy to get distracted in life by doing good things. Now there’s nothing wrong with doing good things ... that is ... unless those good things take the place of those best things. When those good things replace those best things .. then it’s those good things that rob us of those...

When we fast and pray, our spirit man comes to the forefront. We become more aware of the presence of God in our lives, and there is an expectation that God is about to do something new! As we consecrate ourselves to the Lord by carving out time in our schedule to purpose to be with Him and we carve away some of the things that are pleasurable to our old carnal nature, we start to feel God moving in us personally to...

INTRODUCTION: This evening, we will pick up our study of the book of Acts with (vv. 9-11). You will remember our first lesson last week with Luke's opening statement to Theophilus. He discussed the suffering of Christ, His resurrection and then His instructions to the disciples. They were to wait in Jerusalem until the promise of the Father had been fulfilled. In (vv. 4, 5), it says, And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not...

Introduction: The Ascension of Christ into heaven from earth marked the beginning of some very significant things in the life of Christians. Many of them people don't even realize as believers. I am sure as the disciples and others are watching Christ going up into the sky, they did not fully understand what was going on either. It marked the beginning of some new things, but it also marked the end of the some things...

Today I want to talk about ''The Second Coming of Christ,'' as we look in Acts chapter 1. What a time that must have been for those disciples as they stood on the Mount of Olives. Jesus had spent forty days with them after His resurrection from the dead. He had comforted them concerning the future. He had convinced...

The Church of Jesus Christ is in need of revival. The fastest growing religion in our country is Islam. God’s Word and prayer are no longer desired in schools and government. Christian values such as family, prayer, believing the Word of God is now a rarity. God’s people are no longer...

I want to begin this very important summer by speaking what I believe to be a prophetic word from God: We desperately need a fresh baptism of the power of heaven on us! I am not just talking about us as a nation although I think you would agree that we as a nation are in the midst of moral catastrophe. I am not even...

These words are part of St. Peter's sermon to the people of Jerusalem, on occasion of the cure of the lame man, at the "Beautiful Gate" of the temple, shortly after the day of Pentecost. This, and the sermon recorded in the preceding chapter, were perhaps the most effective ever delivered on earth. As the fruit of Peter's ministry in these two discourses, about five thousand souls were converted to Christianity...

NASA had hoped that one of its astronauts would be the first human in space. But on April 12, 1961, the Soviets successfully launch Yuri Gagarin into orbit. He circles Earth in 108 minutes and lands safely. On May 5, 1961, less than a month after Gagarin's flight, the U.S. sends astronaut Alan Shepard into space. His...

How many of you grew up with Easter baskets...favorite candies...what I remember most was that feeling as I fell asleep...expectation! That feeling of expectation the night before Easter, that capacity of the human heart, especially children, to feel something wonderful when waiting for a moment...it's a powerful emotion..

by Jerry Branch

After seeing the pictorial dramatization of the events leading up to Easter, does the Easter Message end with the empty tomb of Christ? Or does the 'concept' of ''It's Friday, but Sunday's coming'' extend beyond the Easter story? Is the story still going on? And IS there still more to come?Read along with me this morning...

We like to avoid the subject of death. Young people live as though it doesn't exist, middle age people think it only happens to other people, and elderly people try avoid the obvious nature of death by using terms like, "so and so passed on" or "so and so is no longer with us", etc. The fact is that every human being will die...

I'm going to speak to you this morning on the glorified wounds of Jesus. The purpose of Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of Christ, is to show just how much Jesus suffered on the Cross when He paid the price for our sins. So graphic and vivid has been his portrayal of the suffering of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of ...
