Sermon Notes: Jesus appears to seven Disciples

Jesus the Savior

Introduction

Motivation is a very powerful virtue. When studying the life of successful people it becomes evident they were able to overcome failure and be successful because of motivation.

Consider Colonel Harland Sanders. The early years of his life were filled with failure you might think he was cursed. But his life was driven by one simple belief that motivated him to keep trying. ‘It’s never too late to pursue your dreams.’ Today he is known as the founder of the highly successful fast food restaurant chain ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken’ better known as KFC.

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.

Sermon: Lessons from Mary and Martha

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.

Sermon: Young Jesus is Lost and Found

Young Jesus, explaining scripture to experts of the Jewish Law in God's presence.

Introduction

In the movie “Home Alone” the McCallister family, in the confusion and rush to board their flight on time, leaves little Kevin at home and does not know until they are already airborne. A similar thing happened almost 2000 years ago and unlike in the movie, this was for real. The Bible says that Mary and Joseph left Jesus behind on their return trip from Jerusalem. There are three important truths about God’s presence we can learn from this incident.

Sermon: Jesus anointed by a Sinful Woman in Bethany

Introduction

In today’s sermon, I want to consider yet another popular passage in the Bible. It is the story of Jesus being anointed by a sinful woman at Bethany. “She has done a beautiful thing to me…” is the key verse in this passage. What can we learn about doing beautiful things for God today? [A sermon preached by Pastor Palitha Jayasooriya from The Preaching Platform. Published with permission.]

Sermon: What would Jesus do about Homosexuals?

Sermon: What would Jesus do about Homosexuals?

Introduction

Our presentation of “Hell House”, this week has made us the target of much criticism from those who accuse us of promoting hatred, toward homosexuals and abortion providers. An old proverb says, “There is a kernel of truth in every criticism.”

Introduction

Someone said, “I bet the Funeral Parlors in Jesus’ day just about went broke. Anywhere Jesus went, the dead were being raised.” Jesus probably raised many people from the dead during his earthly ministry, although the Bible records only three of them.

Sermon: The Power in the name of Jesus

Introduction

Years ago when I was a small boy, I used to suddenly wake up in the middle of the night, unable to speak, move or do anything for that matter. Doctors call it, sleep paralysis, a transitional state between wakefulness and sleep, characterized by a temporary inability to move muscles. According to them sometimes it can be accompanied by hallucinations also. I never had hallucinations but still, the experience was scary enough.
