Conclusion: You may be waiting on something supernatural to be saved. A bright light,a fuzzy feeling, or even someone coming back from the dead. But if you will not heed this preacher and the Truth from God=s Word, even the supernatural will not convince.
If you will not surrender to Jesus Christ by faith, then you have no hope.
If you do not know the Lord, will you repent, turn to Jesus; seek the Lord while He may be found? To the saved, do you care about yours and other’s brothers?
Disclaimer: A man once told me that if it is true, it is not new. If it is new, it is not true. We all know there is nothing new under the sun. With that said, I glean ideas for my sermons from God’s Word, my own thoughts and work, and many other sources. Any similarity to my sermons and others, where credit is not given, is either coincidental, or an unintentional mistake on my part. As none of us have a corner on the wisdom and teaching of God’s Word, it is my desire that any of my outlines be an encouragement, a help, and hopefully a motivation for others to preach God’s Word clearly. Please feel free to use any portion of my sermons if they can be of help to you and your ministry. I purposely include a skeleton outline, and not my full text, for this purpose. It is all for His Glory.
