FINANCES/MONEY SERMON OUTLINES

by Jonathan McLeod

In 6:19-34, Jesus talks about money and possessions. Materialism is one of the big problems of our culture. Craig Blomberg writes, ''It is arguable that materialism is the single biggest competitor with authentic Christianity for the hearts and souls of millions in our world today, including many in the visible church.'' We who are followers of Jesus are to be different. Our lives are not to be all about making money and acquiring possessions...

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: Somebody just won the big Powerball lottery this week. Imagine $130,000,000. Wow! Wouldn't that be wonderful? You could make your dreams come true. There is nothing you couldn't do with that much money. Right? Hopefully, we all know better than that. It's like the rich Texan who was always trying to impress his friends. So he arranged...

Take God's Word and turn with me to James 5. For some time now from the book of James .. we've been thinking under the heading CHRISTIANTY IN SHOELEATHER. You won't find a more practical and pertinent and personal book in the Bible than the book of James. You've heard me say that what the book of Proverbs is the Old Testament the book of James is to the New Testament. Both Proverbs and James take biblical truth and puts...

INTRODUCTION: The Bible is replete with warnings against loving money. Matthew 6:20-21, ‘‘but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’’ Jesus commends the use of financial assets for the purposes which are heavenly and eternal. Ecclesiastes 5:10, ‘‘He who loves silver...

Message Truth: Just as God desires us to worship, witness, pray, and fellowship, He also desires that we give. We are saved by grace, we live by grace, and we are to give out of grace. Introduction: Jesus said a lot about treasure while He was on earth. In fact, one third of His parables address the subject of stewardship. He spoke extensively about it, not because He was a fund-raiser, but because He knew that ‘‘where your treasure is...

Introduction: Money! It beckons and woes us. It tantalizes and seduces us. It sucks us into its grasp and racks havoc in our lives. And still we deny its sinister power. A Money Monster. Huh! There is no such thing. Meanwhile we devote our lives - to earning it - glorying in spending it - and lie awake nights figuring out how to stock pile more of it. We pursue it in inauthentic jobs. And we bow at its...

Dr. W. A. Criswell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, tells a humorous story one time of a man who was coming down to be baptized. When he got almost into the water he stopped and said, "Wait a minute, Dr. Criswell, I forgot to take out my billfold." Dr. Criswell said before he could say another word he jerked him into the water, baptized...

INTRO: Jesus spoke 37 parables that we have recorded in the Bible, of these, 17 or almost half of them were about money and possessions and the use of material things. Why so much attention by Jesus about money issues? There is nothing that impacts and touches our lives more in every way than material ‘‘STUFF’’ ... money affects every area of our life! It is no wonder Jesus spent a great deal of time and teaching on this subject...

Some people only have a heart for the things of this world. When I was a teenager, Madonna was one of the world’s most popular singers…she had a number one song called, ‘‘Material World.’’ The lyrics said, ‘‘We are living in a material world…and I am a material girl.’’ This song fits the lifestyle of much of the world today…we are living in a material word…we are material people…America is both the wealthiest nation in the world and also the most...

It is interesting to me that the Lord Jesus gives a parable which talks about money in Luke 16, after the 15th of Luke He has given us a series of stories about lost things that are found. I think the reason He does this is this: when a person who is lost has been found, they have been saved by the Lord Jesus Christ,one of the...

James 5:1-9 I want to talk to you about a subject that's on every body's mind and that's the subject of money. I heard a lot about money these last days and the things that have been happening in the stock market I know that you are interested in money... if you say that you are not I have a tendency to believe that you are not...

More than 6,000 people responded to the challenge.The eventual winner was Jay Gwaltney of Zionsville, Indiana, who consumed an 11-foot birch sapling - leaves, roots, bark and all. For the...

In a recent 20/20 broadcast (May 4, 2000), Diane Sawyer interviewed a young, freewheeling, self made billionaire named Mark Cuban. Cuban made his fortune in computer and Internet businesses. Nothing remarkable about that. But it is remarkable that he appears to have had such fun in his line of work. Mark Cuban is a...

Regardless of whom you are, where you live, how much you have or how little you have, the one thing everyone has in common these days is that everyone is concerned with their finances. And it is not just those who have the least that are fearful, the fact is, the more you have, the greater the concern. We live in the most affluent country in the...

That is what it is all about -- coming to the cross. Paul said, ''God forbid that I should glory saving the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.'' Most of us came to Jesus before we understood a lot of belief or doctrine. We came to the person. We come to Christ, then afterwards the doctrines, and the truths begin to penetrate our hearts and...

''Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all...
