THE GREAT COMMISSION SERMON OUTLINES

by J. Gerald Harris

In our text for this morning we find the Lord's strategy for world evangelism. He told his disciples that they were to begin in Jerusalem, and then to venture out into Judea, and then to move into Samaria, and ultimately spread the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth. If you carefully study the Acts of the Apostles you will conclude that this strategy of world evangelization was carried out in exactly...

Jesus Christ, the resurrected Lord, made numerous appearances to His beloved followers in the forty days following His miraculous bodily resurrection. As He does for us through His word He encouraged them. Promises were made to them and to us. It was a time of equipping and motivating. The fact of the resurrection itself is reassuring to all believers. Thereby followers of Christ are given assurance of life beyond the grave, an eternal...

What is the Great Commission? The Great Commission is spelled out for us here in Mark 16:15. The Lord told the disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Keep in mind, this command is not just for the 12 disciples, but it is for all disciples. The word disciple simply means; one who follows another. All of God's people are…

It was in the city of Ephesus that the Apostle stayed longer than anywhere else, almost three years. Ephesus was the market of Asia Minor. She was the "Treasure House of Asia" and some called her, "The Vanity Fair of Asia Minor." At times, the Roman governor came there and great cases of justice were tried. She knew the pomp and pageantry of Roman power and Roman justice. She was...

I am preaching from a text that is well-worn but not out-worn. Although it was given over 2,000 years ago, it has not yet been exhausted in its content and applications. It is true that this sermon has been preached thousands of times. However, I cannot say what needs to be said without saying what has already been said. The purpose of this message…

It was on the original high and Holy Mount Zion of Heaven that a problem was recognized. Man, created in God's image, to reflect His glory had fallen for a lie. He had believed the word of that Ancient Serpent Satan and his innocence was lost, he had been seduced, he stood in allegiance with Satan and his myriad of demons in rebellion against their Creator. Within the heart of God...

It's very easy to read the New Testament and be totally convinced that Christ came to save sinners, that Christ had great compassion for the lost, and that Christ paid the price for the lost to be saved. It is also very easy to become imbalanced as a church, doing everything to build up the church and neglect reaching the...

1. I am absolutely convinced after having lived a half century there is nothing more powerful than a vision. Every great institution, every great invention, every great innovation known to the human race has been the result of somebody’s vision. This past month we have asked you to envision...

It has been said of the church, and most critically, I might add: Outwardly splendid as of old; inwardly sparkless, void and cold; her force and fire all spent and gone; like the dead moon, she still shines on. The church of the Lord Jesus Christ is not simply a reflection of greater days of dedication in the past. It is not a cut flower with a little bit of beauty for…

Now we are going to discover some principles in the early church pattern of evangelism. The church is growing at a fantastic rate in the matter of days and weeks it is in the thousands. And all of this because of fantastic vital type of evangelism. It was the church reaching the world and it wasn't easy being a Christian. It wasn't just jump on the band wagon…

As if Jesus were speaking personally to us, for that is His intention right now, for us, as His church. And it is important to think of the situation that, if you were going to say something to somebody, and you want it to be remembered, because of it's importance, and the destiny of the people involved, and all the people they will...

Matthew 28:19-20 ''Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.'' In the Great Commission, the Lord offered us...

What is the church's main business? What is the church here for? What are we doing in downtown Jacksonville? Why have we, for all of these years, been a church located in downtown? This Scripture is after the resurrection of Jesus. He is getting ready to go back to heaven. (Matthew 28:16- 20) Any organization, institution, or...

In James Joyce's book ''Finnegan's Wake'' the protagonist raises a toast to his friend Mark saying ''Three quarks for Muster Mark'' a ''quark'' being the cry of a sea gull. I was reminded of this line twice in my professional education. The first time took place in the 1970's when taking a third year graduate physics class titled ....

One of the more difficult things for Christians to do is to witness for Christ, to do the work of evangelism. For many Christians they just ignore this command! The call of Jesus for us to witness to others was never a suggestion, it was a command! Many things hinder us in this area, mostly fear! Often we are afraid of what others will...

Crazy Robert Hayward…helping me along in my faith and work. Teaching me about grace along the way. ''Take them out into the deep water and drown them in love''What does it mean to be a Disciple ? Jesus not only wants us to follow Him and be His disciple but He wants us to go out and make disciples. He was here in the...

Old time evangelist Vance Havner used to tell the story of an old fisherman. Ol' Clem amazed everyone with his success. It didn't matter what the weather was like or how productive other fishermen were. Clem always caught his limit. All his buddies wanted to know his secret. But no matter how many times they asked...

The peculiar name aroused his curiosity and he dialed the number. A man answered with a cheery, "Hello! Church of God Grill!" He asked how the restaurant had...
