Sermon Notes - Christians are Courageous and Contagious

 

Theme:

Christians are Courageous and Contagious!

 

Key Preaching Verse

Luke 13.34:  Jesus prophesies about His own death, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”

 

Focus Questions

·         Why do you think it is that far too often it is the religious people of the Church who try to murder God’s prophets?

·         What is the difference between being religious and being Christian?

·         Who lives in you?  Self or Holy Spirit?  What guides your decisions? What determines the way you think, act and treat others around you?

·         Most of us would like to say that it is our Christian faith that determines who we are!  But is it?  Think about the decisions you have made in your life!  Who made them?  A citizen of heaven or a citizen of this world?  (Note: The Kingdom of God lives or dies within us with every decision we make!)

 

Take Home Challenge:

·         Are you (and is our church) prophetic or pathetic, when it comes to the exercise of our Christian faith?  Are we courageous and contagious in the proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ?  Or do we “wimp-out”

·         I wonder if one of the reasons why the Christian Church is in decline in the Western World since world war two, is because the leadership of the Church has lacked the courage to speak out the prophetic Word of God.
