April 18 Sermons

Here are the sermons outlines from April 18. I think I deviated from the outlines more than I typically like to, but you can listen and compare yourself if you'd like.


Text: Matthew 8:18-27

Theme: Discipleship

Date: April 18 2010 AM

Location: CBC Monticello

  1. Text

    1. Seemingly unrelated stories

    2. Scribe: will you follow if there is nowhere to go?

    3. Disciple: will you follow alone?

    4. Disciple: will you follow if it keeps you from following social conventions of today?

    5. Disciples: will you follow through the storm?

  2. Idea:

    1. Following Christ and normal do not mix

    2. There are no guarantees except Him

    3. There are no relationships that come before Him

    4. There are no storms that can stop Him

  3. Practice:

    1. Know His orders

    2. Let go of expectations: there may not be dens or nests; houses or church buildings

    3. Let go of expectation: there will be times that we must reject cultural norms and expectations

  4. Strength

    1. There is no one like Him who can command seas and winds

    2. There is no one like Him who can save us from the storms

    3. There is no one like Him who can command us
