Sermon Notes: Why do we abstain from Alcohol?

Sermon: Why do we abstain from Alcohol?

Introduction

In the U.S, the Assemblies of God has traditionally adopted a position of
total abstinence or “teetotalism” when it comes to the use of alcoholic beverages. Our  church is  no exception to that rule. But, in  this  age  of moral  permissiveness, how have we come to that  position and how can we defend it?

Sermon Notes: Salt of the Earth, Light of the World and the City on a Hill

Sermon Notes: The Salt of the Earth, Light of the World and the City on a Hill

Introduction

Last month I had the joy of walking you through Jesus’ teaching on the Beatitudes and together we were able to discover some amazing truths to help ourselves in our walk with God. If you missed those sermons, don’t worry. You can get to them by going here.

Tonight I want us to consider another important portion of scripture recorded in the same passage as the Beatitudes. Once again please turn your Bibles to the Gospel of Matthew chapter 5. We will read verses 13 through 16, (Matthew 5:13-16). Some of you might question the necessity for this sermon because many other sermons have been preached from these verses before. This sermon, however, is going to be a much simple and an easy to understand version.

Sermon: The Beatitudes: Part II (Final)

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Sermon notes: The Beatitudes

 Introduction

Jesus used the beatitudes to explain to His followers the true path to happiness. However this teaching has not always been accepted well because it’s the great contrast to the worldly notion of blessedness and happiness. Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher once called them a “malignant disease.” Jesus’ point is we need to change our focus from the world’s perspective of happiness to God’s perspective of it, in order to find any happiness at all in this life and the beatitudes are the way to do it. In my previous sermon we looked at the first four of these. Let’s consider the rest today.

Introduction

Elie Wiesel the most famous Holocaust survivor of all time once said this. “After the Holocaust, I did not lose faith in God. I lost faith in mankind!” If the Holocaust was a test, I am sure Wiesel passed it with flying colors.

So many sermons have been dedicated to it, searching the phrase “Sermon on the Good Samaritan” in Google returns over  481,000  results.

Sermon: The Beatitudes: Part I

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Sermon notes: The Beatitudes

Introduction

Countless research has proved that happiness is every man’s greatest goal in life. In Matthew 5:3-12 & Luke 6:20-22 Jesus used the beatitudes to explain to His followers the true path to happiness. This teaching has not always been accepted well though because it’s the great contrast to the worldly notion of blessedness and happiness. George Bernard Shaw called it an “impractical outburst of anarchism and sentimentality.” The point is we need to change our focus in order to find any happiness at all in this life and the beatitudes are the way to do it. In today’s sermon let us consider to how embrace these principles?

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 for St. Valentine’s Day 2010: The Most Excellent Way

Introduction

The Valentine’s day is observed in memory of the Saint Valentine who is said to have been executed on February 14th in A.D 470 for performing weddings for Roman soldiers (It was a violation of the Roman Law). May be that’s why he is called the Parton Saint of beloveds and people around the world celebrate romantic love on the day of his execution.
