Sermon Notes - The Demons Within

Theme: The Demons Within

(The Road to Discovering our True Identity in God)!

 

Key Preaching Verse

a)  Galatians 3.26-27:  “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,  for all of you who were baptised into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”

b)  Luke 8.30“Jesus asked him, ‘What is your name?’ ‘Legion,’ he replied, because many demons had gone into him.”

 

Focus Questions

  • What is your name?  In other words, who are you?  What is your true identity?  Is it Christian (a follower of Jesus) or something else?  Are you Christ-centred or self-centred?
  • Is your name “legion” pulled from “pillar to post” by the various demons within and the delusions of the world?  Are there many voices within you, pulling, shoving and manipulating you so that you don’t know who you are anymore?  Or are you a child of God?
  • When God calls us by name and knocks down the barriers we placed between us and Him, how do we respond?  What does it mean for us to seek Christian transformation and conversion?
  • Is one of the demons within, your failure to surrender your money and your time given in ministry to God?  Is partial conversion real conversion?
  • How much is God worth to you?  How much do you love Jesus – 0.5% of your income or 5% of your income or 10% of your income or maybe you have dedicated everything you have to God and the service of His kingdom?

Take Home Challenge:

The stewardship of money and time given in ministry to Christ’s Church has everything to do with the theme I have been talking a lot about this year.  The surrender of our lives into the will and care of our Lord Jesus Christ:

The Stewardship Journey

  • The first step is to truly trust Jesus with our lives
  • The second step is to surrender our lives into the will and care of Jesus
  • Do you trust Jesus with your money?
