This is a draft sermon outline for a brother in Christ and friend that I’ve been talking to about preaching John 11:24.

 

preacher-at-pulpit-copy

Some quick comments: 

  • This isn’t a complete outline; there’s part that says “(Insert insight)” or “(Insert more application”) etc are areas to flesh out more.
  • I am a big fan of the 4 P of preaching: Point, Proof, Picture and Practice.
  • I try to make my outline reflect the passage of God’s Word that I’m preaching on.
  • I like to make my points be not just information but we do something even if its being amazed with God.
  • I like to have outlines when I preach to respect the time of the church service that I finish the message on time and not be beyond the time limit; so the more details gets indented in so if I need to go faster I can just summarize but I have my argument for my view saved if others ask or if I preach again somewhere else next time the same passage.

Be Amaze at Jesus claiming to be the Resurrection and the Life

(ESV)

John 11:24

Establish the need: Have you thought about the reality of death lately?  There’s no vaccine from facing eternity separated from God or eternity with God.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[a] Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,

Purpose: Today we shall consider three truths to be amazed about concerning Jesus statement that He is the Resurrection and the Life so that we trust in Him and Worship Him today.

  1. Be amaze at Jesus being the Resurrection and the Life (v.24a)
  2. Be amaze at Jesus being God Himself (v.24a)
  3. Be amaze at Jesus gift of eternal life (v.24b)

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of an unbeliever or alleged believer say they don’t like a Biblical doctrine because it isn’t “nice.”  What they go on to say is they want doctrines that are sweet, “loving” and makes them feel good inside.  How do you respond?

Secular Thought And Where It Leads with Arno Fourie

Well I slept early Sunday after a tiring day of ministry!  So here’s a post that’s later than usual!

Here is an interview/podcast with two brothers that I love.  It is from Rooted In Revelation Podcast (Facebook page here).  It is a podcast that touch on theology, apologetics and Christian living.  This is hosted by Nate Burns.

I wanted to share one of the shows.  This is an interview with Arno Fourie.  I’m encouraged to see Arno have an evangelistic zeal and courage and his applied apologetics all over social media. If you are wondering about his accent, he’s a South African living in Australia.  That’s pretty cool!

What was the topic? The two had a conversation about secular thought and where it leads.

Here’s a thesis for a Master’s Degree in history that Liberty University’s College of Arts and Sciences has made available titled “The New Left in American Evangelicalism.”   So much have often been focused about Evangelicalism with the political conservative movement but with the change of trajectory of the younger generation (my generation of Millennial and younger) that has made its way into the church there’s not as much focus on the roots of the New Left in American Evangelicalism.  A case can be made that there needs to be discernment and concern for the Left especially with its rise in power in the establishment and institutions in today’s society and the church in the next generation picking things up from the world uncritically.

The thesis was written by Jonathan E. Harris and was completed on August 2020 as part of his completion of his Masters’ Degree in History.  I am thankful Liberty University has made this thesis available online for free.  Mr. Harris has published another book last month in September on social justice titled “Christianity and Social Justice: Religions in Conflict.”

Here’s the abstract for the thesis:
