SERMONS, OUTLINES, ILLUSTRATIONS, AND PREACHING IDEAS

SERMONS ON GRACE ALONE

Our sermon ideas on Grace Alone will help you preach a powerful message. This is a powerful, and wonderfully freeing doctrine that teaches us that salvation is by grace alone, and not as a result of our works. Teach your congregation on this topic that runs squarely against our culture of work and approval. Prepare your message on Grace Alone with sermon outlines or an entire sermon series.

"He who does not receive salvation purely through grace, independently of all good works, certainly will never secure it." - Martin Luther

People don't like handouts. We feel like they diminish our worth. We associate them with shame, with powerlessness, with a sense of inferiority, with some kind of personal or moral failure. Oh, that does not keep us from wanting something that is free. It does not keep us from...

I have never been the smartest person in the room, truth be told I am not even close. No need to feel sorry for me it is a condition I have had since I was a little child and I have learned to live with it. There were some lessons in school that I had difficulty learning. I did not think I would ever learn to tell time on my own and...

In introductions one must use brevity and clarity. Here, Paul has 25 verses, which serve as the shortest of Paul's inspired writings. It is the only one of the prison epistles addressed to an individual. The Lord is about to speak through the aged apostle and in doing so, he will deal with a very important, yet practical, issue. Paul is...

Do you ever look around you and find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of sin and evil that stands in the way of the promises of God?

To be a real Christian, we must recognize God's grace at every moment of our lives and not just the big events, but also the everyday stuff. We must understand that God's grace creates the complex web of relationships and events that sustain us. As fallible humans however, we easily slide into one of three situations where we deny the...

If you have your Bible, we are looking at Titus 2:11. How sweet it is to know that not only does Jesus save us, not only does Jesus sacrifice for us, but also Jesus secures us. We cannot lose that salvation that is eternal in Christ. But on the other side, Satan comes along and he tells us another lie. He comes along and tells us...

For most people the subject of giving is really a grind. A lot people when they think in terms of giving have a little natural reluctance to even talk about the subject. I suppose the reasons for this is that there is a streak of stinginess in all of us and we really don't want to talk too much about giving and depriving ourselves of...

Grace is a greatly misunderstood word in our culture. Our culture builds worth on talent, education achievement and wealth. We teach people to look deep inside and find something of value and then they can be accepted. We operate on rules, conditional love, beauty, performance, material possessions and we...

I want to speak to you today on this subject, ''Dying Grace.'' Now, God gives us living grace and saving grace and so God who saves us and God who keeps us is the God who will give to us dying grace. And I read here in the word of God, ''And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years, so the whole age of Jacob was an...

Jesus made a practice of telling people who they were and what they could do. He told a paralyzed man he could walk; he told a guilt-ridden woman she was forgiven; he told a three-day dead Lazarus to come out of his tomb. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus told his disciples then and tells us now by the Holy Spirit that they were...
