Sermon notes: Jesus heals a Roman Centurion’s Servant

Sermon: Jesus heals a Roman Centurion’s Servant

Introduction

In the weeks that passed by, I shared with you from Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount.” For the past 24 years, I have listened to many Preachers and preached many sermons myself. But none of those preachers or myself ever concluded a sermon with an unexpected warning like Jesus gave in his sermon on the mount. His exact words were,

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Sermon notes: 6 things that the Lord hates and the 7 things that are detestable to Him

Sermon notes: 6 things the Lord hates and the 7 things detestable to Him

Introduction

Don’t be surprised if the title of my sermon makes you feel uncomfortable. Truth be told I felt very uncomfortable myself because we do not know God as a hater. The dictionary defines hate as intense dislike. Can God really dislike something so intensely? The Bible says he can and in Proverbs 6:16-19 we have a list of things that he really hates.

Sermon Notes: The Faith of a Shunammite Woman

Sermon Notes: The Faith of a Shunammite Woman

Introduction

A common sponge activity among new bye preachers when they want to preach about faith is to ask the congregation  “How many of you have got faith?” The question actually doesn’t make sense because there’s no such thing as “people who have faith” and “people who don’t have faith.”  The truth is that everyone puts their faith in something. A much sensible way of asking this question would be to ask them “On whom or what or where do you have placed your faith today?”

Introduction

2009 is over. 2010 is here. As we stand here at the beginning of a New Year it is a good time to reflect on the year that is ending and look forward into the year that is soon to begin. It is also a good time for God’s people to take inventory of their walk with the Lord. We should take a very close look at where we are in our relationship with Him. We need to examine ourselves and see where we have been, where we are and where the Lord wants us to be. This passage gives us the opportunity and the challenge to do just that.

Sermon Notes: 4 Important Truths about Redemption

Sermon notes: 4 important truths about Redemption

Introduction

The believers in the early church belonged to three social groups. Slaves, former slaves and people who were born free. Slaves in the Roman Empire were always not slaves. They were forced into slavery by the circumstances of life. By the time the New Testament Church was formed however the slave community of Rome consisted mostly of people that were born into slavery.

Like any human being, slaves also desired to be free. Therefore at times, they ran away from their masters, in search of everlasting freedom. According to Roman Law, however, a runaway slave was still a slave. Running away did not set him free. Not legally. In fact, he had to keep on running to avoid capture by his master and it was only a matter of time until he was captured. Under Roman law, a slave had to meet one out of three conditions in order to receive his freedom.
