Sermons on Evangelism

We Can Help

Sermon text: 1 Peter 2:17 In the midst of a fractured world, Christians have an opportunity to bring people together. We have the message of hope that so many need to hear. But the church must separate itself from the rampant shrillness that marks so much of modern discourse. Instead we must value people the way that God does. We must love our fellow Christians. We must fear God and get in line with His plan. And we must give…

No Matter What

Drew Padilla describes his salvation experience. The persistent efforts of one Christian led Drew to surrender his life to Jesus Christ. Drew also presents a challenge to tell someone about Jesus.

The Disconnect

Sermon text: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 The world considers God’s plan of salvation to be moronic. That goes for all who believe in it as well. But for those who put their trust in Jesus’ finished work, we know that it is actually the greatest demonstration of God’s power. Unbelievers of every generation mock and question and find fault with Christ and His followers. They put their confidence in shaky religious schemes and sketchy philosophical systems. But their most honored thinkers…

The Need for Clarity

Sermon text: Colossians 1:28-29 Our culture today is anything but clear. So much of what is said is muddy at best. Competing agendas and philosophies are even complicating straightforward concepts like gender and marriage. It’s reasonable to assume that confusion is running rampant. This is why there is such a need for clarity from the Christian community. Our message about Jesus must be clear. We cannot cloud it with wrong motives or unimportant information. People’s eternal souls are at stake.

The Difference

Sermon text: Matthew 5:13-16 Early in His Sermon on the Mount Jesus challenges His followers to impact the world. He tells us that we are to be salt and light to a lost and dying generation. This speaks to what we do and why we do it. We must be different than those who don’t know Jesus as their Lord. And when they see the difference, we can lead them to a saving knowledge of Jesus as well.

The Gospel Cliffhanger

Sermon text: Mark 16:1-8 For centuries, scholars have debated exactly where the book of Mark ends. While chapter 16 has twenty verses in virtually every Bible, the last twelve verses are disputed. Your Bible may very well have a note in its margins about this. What if verse eight is in fact the final verse of Mark’s gospel? It would create a challenging cliffhanger for all who read it.

Proper Expectations

Sermon text: 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 Paul had a lot to deal with when it came to the church in Corinth. One particularly onerous situation involved an incestuous relationship within the fellowship. What made matters worse was that the church leadership was accepting of this sin in their midst. Paul had told them earlier that they could not fellowship with these types of people. But the Corinthian Christians didn’t get it. They though he meant to not befriend people caught up…

Life-Changing Words

Sermon text: John 1:43-51 Jesus said to Philip, “Follow me.” When Philip told Nathanael about Jesus, Nathanael was less than impressed. Philip couldn’t tell him much, so he challenged Nathanael, “Come and see.” To his credit, Nathanael came and saw. And when he did, Jesus told Nathanael, “I saw you.” Simple phrases, but ones which changed these men’s lives.

Grace Period (2 Corinthians 5:18-21)

Jesus came to earth the first time to usher in His kingdom. He came to seek and save the lost. As he departed after His resurrection He charged His followers with making disciples. We are still in that period of human history. We’ve been given a grace period to lead as many as we can to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Scripture tells us clearly that Jesus Christ will return. And when He comes back this time, it will…

The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32)

Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son is one of His most loved stories. But Jesus makes it clear from the outset that it is the tale of two sons. The younger son takes his inheritance and squanders it. But what about the older son? There is much to learn from the experiences and conduct of both.
