Sermon notes: The necessity for Faith and Works in the Salvation of Man

Sermon notes: The necessity for faith and works in the salvation of Man

Introduction

I have been preaching God’s word for the past 20 years. However, I believe the sermon you are going to hear from me today is the most important sermon I will preach ever. I tell you so because it concerns the eternal salvation of our precious soul. It’s based on a question many Christians seem to struggle with. Is faith alone sufficient to be saved or should faith be accompanied by works?

Introduction

Christians love Chris Gayle for he talks about God, both in the field and at home. Unfortunately, however, he leads a questionable lifestyle that doesn’t fit the Bible-believing Christians. Then there’s Tatenda Taibu, the Zimbabwe wicketkeeper-batsman, who gave up Cricket, to work for the church.

Introduction

History speaks of a Bishop, who is said to have proclaimed that heavier-than-air human flight wasn’t possible because it contradicted God’s will. His name was Milton Wright and he was the father of Orville and Wilbur Wright. Apparently, his understanding of God’s will was seriously flawed!

Sermon: A Samaritan Woman’s Encounter with Jesus

Introduction

Many years ago a young man who sought supernatural intervention for his problems, walked into a Hindu Temple, hoping to receive the favor of the gods that the temple was dedicated for. While he was there he heard an audible voice, which said: “You have come to the wrong place.” He realized this is indeed the Lord Jesus speaking to him. Talk about an encounter! He immediately left that temple and a few days later joined a church in his neighborhood. Long story short, he dedicated his life to service to God and led many people to Christ.

Introduction

Edwin Bliss once said, “The pursuit of excellence is gratifying and healthy. The pursuit of perfection is frustrating, neurotic, and a terrible waste of time.”

Interestingly Jesus taught the same principle as far as 2ooo years ago when he visited Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-42 the basis for this sermon. These sisters have three important lessons for us.

The US Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage nationwide on June 26th, 2016 triggered mixed responses from Christian Communities not only across the country but the global church. When I read the various responses on the web the thought that crossed my mind was, “What will I do if this happened in my country, Sri Lanka?” I prayed about and the Holy Spirit implanted five thoughts in my heart. I want to share those thoughts with you today. (All scripture is from the Amplified Bible [AMP])
