Sermon Manuscript: Security and God’s Call (Genesis 11.27-12.9)

This morning we started a 5 week series we’re calling The Gospel According to Abraham. If you’re new to the Bible, Abraham is the biggest character in the Old Testament. He’s monumental. Three major world religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam claim Abraham as a father of their faith. This means that the majority of the world population trace their beliefs back through Abraham.

And when you read the life of Abraham in the Old Testament, you find that Abraham stood out from the crowd. In a world of sameness, he was different. Life didn’t happen to Abraham—he happened to life. Why? How? That’s what this series is all about.

Sermon Manuscript: Galatians 3:21-27

Yesterday we continued our sermon series through the book of Galatians. We’re calling it Saving Faith. In this letter the apostle Paul challenges those who were distorting the doctrine of justification by grace alone. Judaizers, as we have come to know these false teachers, were teaching that the work of circumcision must be added to the finished work of Christ for salvation. Paul issues the strongest warning he ever gives to these teachers and to this church. To distort the true gospel is to have no gospel at all.

Sermon Manuscript: John 6:27-40

Sunday we completed week 5 of our series “Who is Jesus?” We’ve been looking at texts from the first half of  John’s gospel. It’s called the Book of Signs because John has carefully selected vignettes from the ministry of Christ which highlight the essence and nature of his Messiahship. This Sunday we examined Jesus as the Bread of Life in John 6. A copy of the manuscript I preached from is available below for your own study.

On Sunday we continued a six week series through John’s “Book of Signs.” Our goal in the series is to examine the vignettes John offers in the first half of his gospel account to gain a full picture of who Jesus is and what he means to us. The third part of the series was from John 2:1-11, and the sermon manuscript can be found below:

Sermon Manuscript- Love Lake Wylie: 1 Corinthians 12:13-31

Love Lake Wylie

Sunday we continued our series on church membership and ministry we’re calling “Love Lake Wylie.” We’re taking seriously— the teaching of the Bible— that we cannot become who God has called us to be without the church. We’re countering the individualism of our culture and declaring something bold: we need one another. We need our church. We don’t just need to be served by the church. In order for us to become who we were made to be – we must be serving others. Here’s a link to the entire sermon manuscript.

Always remember that these manuscripts are not written in formal English. They are written to be spoken, preached.

I provide these manuscripts so that church members can fully engage in the life of the sermon, as it’s happening, without fear of missing notes. I pray you’ll benefit from having this resource.

In Psalm 9 David tells us that God never forgets those in need, yet David himself is being pursued and attacked. Is David saying that God is inconsistent? How can David suffer and yet celebrate God at the same time? The following sermon manuscript was preached at Christ Community Church.
