Sermon notes: 3 factors that make a Nation Great

The three most important factors that determine a Great Nation

Introduction

A nation’s greatness is not dependent on its history; background or accomplishments. It is not based on the natural wealth, resources, economic prosperity, population, military strength, the capacity of its industry or agriculture, education system, health services, the system of governance or its leaders.

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?”

New Year Sermon: An old Challenge for a New Year

New year sermon - An old challenge for a new year

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.

Christmas 2009: Lessons from the Angelic Annunciation to Shepherds

Christmas 2009: Lessons from the Angelic Annunciation to the Shepherds.

Introduction

The Christmas season is known for two things. It marks the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as well as the end of a year. This year (2009) has been of great significance to our nation, politically, socially, and economically.

It was politically significant as our dear President Barrack Obama sworn in as the first black American President. Socially speaking we saw the Bart Police shooting Oscar Grant which resulted in protests and several hours of violence in Oakland, California. Economically speaking this year marked the worst period of the great recession that saw nearly 800,000 jobs lost.

All of these events received worldwide media coverage that they deserved. They were noteworthy happenings in the history of our nation.

Sermon Notes: A Three-Fold Response to the Great Commission

Introduction

In the Oxford dictionary, the word “commission” has two definitions. One is “an instruction, command, or role given to a person or group.” It reminds us of the great commission recorded in the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 28 verses 19 – 20 (…Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you… – NET) The other is the “authority to perform a task or certain duties.” That reminds us of the power for witnessing which Christ promised us in the book of Acts chapter 1 and verse 8. (But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth.– NET)

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.

Sermon Notes: Fearing Fear or Fuelling Faith

Sermon Notes: Fearing Fear or Fuelling Faith

Introduction

According to psychology, rational fear and irrational fear are the most basic forms of fear. We know, however, fear is always counterproductive, whether rational or irrational. For example, the author of 1 Samuel describes Goliath and his weapons in great detail not only to hi-light God’s power over the enemies of his people but also to imply Saul’s men feared him for a valid reason. However, it was counterproductive, and God raised David to deal with Goliath.
