As We Follow the Lord, Let Us!
In this sermon outline we list thirteen of the Let Us that gives us a path to follow the Lord. We begin with Let Us arise and go. It is a life long walk with the Lord doing His Will. WHY? It is because we love Him. As we look at the full context of each Let Us, we begin to understand that in this Christian walk, we are never alone. He is always with us, every step of the way. I love the painting of the footprints on the sand, it begins with two, but after awhile there is only one set. That is when He begins to carry us. What a wonderful Saviour and Lord!
I. Let us arise and go...
John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
A. Arise and do what?
1. Jesus because the relationship He had with His Father which was love, He kept His commandment.
2. We do show our love for God when we do His commandments.
II. Let us cast off...
Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
A. We cast off the worldly things and put on the armour of God found in Ephesians 6.
III. Let us walk in honestly....
Romans 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
A. God’s people must be honest in all things.
1. The world watches us. There is an old saying that is still true to day.
"Your actions speak so loud, I cannot hear what you are saying."
IV. Let us be sober....
1 Thes 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
A. We are children of the day.
B. We are children that are not only sober, but have faith and love with the hope of salvation.
V. Let us fear.....
Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
A. This is a holy fear.
1. This fear encourages us to run the race set before us.
2. We want all God has for us.
3. One day we want to hear well done!
VI. Let us labor to enter into that rest........
Heb 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
A. We need to work for the Lord. We are saved by faith, but that same faith will encourage us to continue to press on.
VII. Let us come boldly to the Lord......
Heb. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
A. We do this by coming to the Lord in prayer.
1. Too often we want to play and not pray.
2. Many of the prayer meetings are gone from our churches.
a. I like what the churches in the CIS, formally the USSR, call their buildings. They call it a House of Prayer.
b. We need to be bold in our prayers. Praying the Will and Word of God.
c. C.H. Spurgeon once said, "Prayer pulls the rope down below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly; others give only an occasional jerk at the rope. But he who communicates with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously with all his might."
VIII. Let us go unto perfection.....
Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
A. There is not stopping place with God.
B. We need to grow in the knowledge of the Lord.
C. A Sunday School teacher once asked a class what was meant by the word "repentance." A little boy put up his hand and said, "It is being sorry for your sins." A little girl also raised her hand and said, "It is being sorry enough to quit."
IX. Let us hold fast.......
Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
A. We should not be ashamed of being a Christian.
