Sermons That Work From 1 Kings 19

An anonymous pastor wrote the following: In the first five years of my ministry, I had a sign on my desk that read, “Win the World for Christ!” In my second five years of ministry, I put up a new sign that read, “Win One or Two for Christ!” Since that time I have this sign on my desk: “Try Not to Lose Too Many!”

When I read that, it reinforced the fact that discouragement is real and paralysing.

Sermons That Work From 2 Timothy 2:20-26

We all have the potential to be godly role models within our families. But that potential can be wasted if we don't nurture certain qualities in our lives.

In 2 Timothy 2:20, I believe the apostle Paul drew a picture of the church in which there are people who honor God and people who dishonor God. Of course, Paul wanted Timothy to be a person who honored God and this implies certain qualities in ones life. In fact, being a godly role model or a vessel of honor involves several qualities.

Sermons That Work From Hebrews 12

Often when we plan to do something, we set before us a course of action; and in following that course of action, we hope that it will be clear sailing. However, most times it never seems to happen that way. There is always something to create turbulence in our lives. When I thought about this, it reminded me of the Christian life.

We know that the starting point in our Christian life is our conversion and we know that the finishing point is heaven but we don't always know what will take place in between. Yes, we would prefer clear sailing but usually we all face turbulence at times. It is these times we need all the encouragement we can get. That's why the writer to the Hebrews encourages his readers to run the race of life faithfully.

Sermons That Work From James 1

Someone once said, “I wouldn’t be tempted if temptation wasn’t so tempting.” Oscar Wilde said, “I can resist anything but temptation.” From this we can conclude that temptation is real and we all face temptation at times.

A young wife returns home from shopping with a very expensive dress. The husband is livered. “How could you do this,” he exclaimed. “I don’t know,” she replied, “I was standing in the store looking at the dress. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the Devil was whispering to me, ‘Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.’” “Well,” the husband said, “You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, ‘Get behind me, Satan!’” “I did,” replied the young wife, “but then he said ‘It looks great from back here, too.’” Temptation is real. We all face temptation.

Sermons That Work From Luke 3

As someone said, “We live in a world of competing voices. Everyday we are bombarded by various voices from radio, television, videos, DVD’s, books, music, newspapers, internet, billboards, friends, etc. etc. These voices are constantly shouting at us, telling us how to live, what we need to buy, how we should spend our time, who we need to marry, etc. etc. These voices are very real. They are very powerful, and they want you to listen, they want you to do as they say.

However, there is one voice that is different from all other voices. Of course, I am referring to the voice of God. God still speaks to us today through His word. But are we listening to God’s voice? Are we willing to listen to God’s word? Is God’s word shaping our lives or are competing voices shaping our lives?
