PASTOR APPRECIATION SERMON OUTLINES

by Rex Yancey

Jesus was preparing to send the 70 on a preaching mission. His instructions were comprehensive: They were told where to go, what to say, and what to expect. They should expect rejection, arrests, scourging's, hatred and even death. Then he reminds them ''That the servant is no greater than his master.'' He was to experience those things and they should expect no less...

We've been looking at the topic that in order for DBC to go Viral and sweep across here in Dallas and the Back Mountain, the church must show Love. Love, first for God - Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your might, and second, we must love both the people within the church but also the people who are not yet part of the church - we must love our neighbors as ourselves...

Here in this second servant’s song commentators have debated for years who is this servant of the Lord? Some have felt like this passage is dealing with Israel, describing the nation of Israel being that one individual that God is talking about as a nation, but there is a problem as you look at verses 5 and 6. That’s not exactly where He is going...

One day, a teacher was talking to her first grade class about whales when a little girl had a question. Little Girl: ''Do whales swallow people?'' Teacher: ''No, even though they are much bigger than a person, they have throat pleats that filter their food of krill and plankton. Little Girl: ''But Mrs. Thurston says Jonah was...

When you begin to think of the typical pastor, what kind of image do you conjure up in your mind? I don't know what kind of image surfaces in your mind, because I'm not sure what kind of image the laity has of the clergy. You may think we are a strange breed that passes all understanding. I don't know. Maybe we are...

In this charming little book written to new believers, the Apostle Paul brings us back to the basics of the faith. It is very important for all Christians, but especially new Christians, to know what we believe in terms of our faith and how to apply what we believe to our daily life. One of the most important truths a young Christian needs to understand is the role of the local church in their Christian maturity and growth. When you study the New...

This lesson is designed to reveal clearly that the Lord is not silent on the issue of the caliber of men He wants to oversee His people. The two clearest passages in scripture are First Timothy chapter three and Titus chapter one. We will examine both of these chapters.Continuing his instructions on how the church should...

AUTHORSHIP: The Apostle Paul. RECIPIENT: Timothy - Timothy was the son of a Gentile father and a Jewish mother (Acts 16:1,3). He was reared in a knowledge of the Scriptures (2 Tim. 1:5, 3:14-15), and led to the Lord possibly by Paul himself (1 Tim. 1:2). On his second missionary journey Paul found Timothy at Lystra. Paul determined...

These closing words give a summary of what has been said and serves as a final word of encouragement to the Hebrew believers. These words show us the deepest desires and truest longings in the heart of the man of God. The writer has roamed the Old Testament for illustrations, examples, and verses to support his warning and pleas. He has appealed to the conscience, the intellect, the emotions, and the will. He has balanced the sufferings...

Now as you’re finding the book of 1st Thessalonians, let me remind you that the church there was started by Paul during his second missionary journey. And don’t think it took him a long time to establish a church there. His was a brief stay: Acts 17.2, ‘‘Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the scriptures.’’...

Have you ever struggled with prayer? Not just prayer itself but what to pray when you pray especially when you are praying for other people and you don't know of a specific need? You want to pray for them but you want your prayer to go just a little bit deeper than, 'God bless ___, AMEN.' If we struggle with prayer and what to...

"The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over...

JESUS CHRIST pledged Himself to build His church. He always does things orderly. Therefore, He has organized His church. The text lists three primary group exhortations. This shows the church to have been well organized. Consider these traits of the pastor and the people in a church functioning as intended...

Introduction: Many Christians wonder, ''What is the Pastor really like inside himself, in his spirit, his innermost thoughts? How does he feel? How does he express himself before the Lord? How does he react to God's people? For some people see only the pastor's one side and don't really know what is on his heart...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

John speaks of himself as though he were a father, and, therefore, we concede to parents the right to use the language of the text. Sure am I that many of you here present, both mothers and fathers, can truly say, "We have no greater joy than to hear that our children walk in truth." But John was not after the flesh the...

Last Sunday morning I tried to give the historical background and give you a little understanding of why it is Paul who is writing to the saints at Philippi. We find that in Acts 16. The Apostle Paul is writing a letter to the members of the church in the city of Philippi. We found in Acts 16 how this church came into existence, and we...

I keep reminding you of the context of James' letter, not because I think you will forget, but because I want you to recognize that you must interpret the text within it's context. So remember, that our writer, James is the lead Pastor of the mother Church in Jerusalem. At this point in Church History fledgling congregations were springing up...

All right. If you have your Bible, please turn to the Book of Titus. Titus is right before Philemon, which is right before Hebrews. We started a series a couple of weeks ago on the Book of Titus. It's an interesting little book and it's one of the Pastoral Epistles. Paul was writing. He wrote two letters to Timothy, his child in the faith, and then also to...

It was ''fellowship'' that brought the village tinker John Bunyan, the future writer of Pilgrim's Progress, to faith in Christ. In his book Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, he recalls being a lost young man who became interested in Christ by overhearing the conversation of a group of village women enjoying fellowship. He wrote...
