*******SERMON OUTLINE*********

Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now!

I. Stopping Short...

Praise the Lord!!!

Turn with me in your Bibles this morning to Matthew 16:13-18.

How many in here this morning has ever set a goal

in your life,

and you stopped short of completing your goal?

You could have had the reward that comes from

accomplishing your goals,

You could have been an accomplished man or an

accomplished woman,

You could have had the satisfaction of knowing

that you did this one thing,

But you stopped short of success and

You missed the mark in that perticular area of

your life. Amen?

Ya’ll know what I’m talking about today!

We see it everyday.

The basketball player that could have been the

next Michael Jordan,

but he let his sinful lifestyle get in the way of his


There’s the football player that could have been the

next heisman trophy winner,

But an injured knee stopped him short of his goal.

The teenage role model who had a successful

acting career with Disney,

But her choices in life cost her her career.

I’m talking about people who could have been


But something or somebody stopped them dead in

their tracks! Amen?

Well I’m here to tell you this morning that though

you may have fell short in the past,

Though you may have stopped short of

accomplishing your goals in the past,

Though you may have slipped up and fell down

and come to a halt in your walk with God in the


You can still get up today,

and and you can still carry own and be that

somebody that you were striving to be back then.

II. Be Somebody...

How many in here this morning wants to be


Turn to your neighbor this morning and say I

wanna be somebody?

How many in here this morning knows that God

wants you to be somebody?

And He just doesn’t want you to be anybody he

wants you to be that somebody that He’s created

you to be.

He wants you to be that somebody that was

created to be blessed!

The somebody that was created to have fellowship

with Him!

He wants you to be the somebody that ain’t afraid

to tell people how much they love Jesus!

He wants you to be the somebody that’s willing to

walk in the calling that He’s for ordained for you to

walk in!

He wants you to be the somebody that’ll tell

everybody about the one that can save anybody.

How many knows what I’m talking about this


God doesn’t want you to be an unsuccessful


God has a purpose just for you,

and a plan just for your life! Amen?

He’s got great things in store for you.

Every believer has a destiny and God is waiting for

you to come to that realization,

So that He can begin to reveal his will for your life.

And though we may have fallen short in times


Though we may have come to a detour or to a stop

sign in other areas of our lives,

Even though the enemy has had us bound up,

And beaten down,

And he’s thrown road blocks in our paths since the

days of old,

When the Lord begins to guide our steps,

When we put the Lord in charge of our destiny,

And we recognize who God is in our own

individual lives...

There ain’t no stoppin’ us now!!! Amen?

III. No More Stopping...

If you have your Bibles opened to the Book of

Matthew the 16th chapter,

I want you to look at verses 13-18 with me this


Mat 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

Mat 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Mat 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Christ said He would build his church and the

gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

What He was saying in todays language was we are

the church and "Ain’t no stopping us now"!!!

How many in here remember that old song by

McFadden & Whitehead?
