To My Child: Things I Can and Cannot Do


To My Child: Things I Can and Cannot Do

I can share your life, but I cannot live it for you.
I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn.
I can give you directions, but I cannot always lead you.
I can allow you freedom, but I cannot account for it.
I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe.
I can teach you right from wrong, but I cannot decide for you.
I can give you love, but I cannot force it upon you.
I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unselfish.
I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honor.
I can tell you the facts of life, but I cannot build your reputation.
I can tell you about lofty goals, but I cannot achieve them for you.
I can teach you to obey, but I cannot answer for your actions.
I can warn you about sin, but I cannot make your morals.
I can love you as my child, but I cannot place you in God’s family.
I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God.
I can teach you about Jesus, but I cannot make Him your Savior.
I can teach you about prayer, but I cannot make you pray.
I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you eternal life.

Simple Sermon Starters



Please check this post also in the future, as it will grow to include additional outlines.

Each year we host a four-day "TITUS" summer camp in Keller, Texas, to train boys to preach lessons from God's Word. These young men are going into 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the Fall. I teach five lessons in homiletics (sermon preparation and presentation) to all the campers. I want to give them a choice of basic outlines that they can use to help them get started.

For this purpose I have put together the following basic sermon outlines. Please use these in any way you find helpful, and please comment below to give me additional outlines that I may consider including in this list. Thanks!

Also comment if you want more information about how your boys might be part of our next TITUS Camp. 

Noah: a Titanic Success
Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
Noah Heeded God’s Warning.
Noah Obeyed God’s Command (Prepared the Ark).
Noah Saved His Family.
Noah Received God’s Righteousness.
Abraham: Responding to God
When God calls, answer! Gen 12:1-4
When God sends, go! Gen 12:1-4
When God promises, believe! Gen 15:6
When God commands, surrender! Gen 22
Abraham: Answering God’s Call
Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise; 10 for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
Listening   God called Abraham.
Leaving     Abraham obeyed.
Living        As an alien in a foreign land.
Looking     Anticipated.
Abraham: Passing God’s Test
Heb 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son; 18 it was he to whom it was said, “In Isaac your descendants shall be called.” 19 He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him back as a type.
Abraham Waited for Isaac as God Promised.
Abraham Offered Up Isaac as God Commanded.
Abraham Received Isaac Back as God Provided.
Joseph: A Hero Like Christ
Ac 7:9 “The patriarchs became jealous of Joseph and sold him into Egypt. Yet God was with him, 10 and rescued him from all his afflictions, and granted him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and all his household. 11 “Now a famine came over all Egypt and Canaan, and great affliction with it, and our fathers could find no food. 12 “But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our fathers there the first time. 13 “On the second visit Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and Joseph’s family was disclosed to Pharaoh. 14 “Then Joseph sent word and invited Jacob his father and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five persons in all.
Joseph, Like Christ, Rejected by His Brothers
Joseph, Like Christ, Exalted to the Throne
Joseph, Like Christ, Eager to Save His Brothers
Joseph, Like Christ, Prepared to Receive His Brothers
David: the Giant Killer
1 Sam 17
His Courage
His Character
His Conviction
His Conquest
Three Great Truths: Ecclesiastes 12:13
Fear God
Keep His Commands
This is the Whole Duty of Man.
Ezra: a Man of God
Ezr 7:10 For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Ezra Studied God’s Law
Ezra Practiced God’s Law
Ezra Taught God’s Law
The Nature of Sin
1 Jn 2:15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.
Ge 3:6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
The lust of the flesh
The lust of the eyes
The pride of life
The Sin Process (1)
Jos 7:20 So Achan answered Joshua and said, “Truly, I have sinned against the Lord, the God of Israel, and this is what I did: 21 when I saw among the spoil a beautiful mantle from Shinar and two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold fifty shekels in weight, then I coveted them and took them; and behold, they are concealed in the earth inside my tent with the silver underneath it.” 22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent; and behold, it was concealed in his tent with the silver underneath it.
I Saw.
I Coveted.
I Took.
I Hid.
The Sin Process (2)
Jas 1:14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. 15 Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Desire – “Lust has conceived.”
Action – “It gives birth to sin.”
Destruction – “It brings forth death.”
The Wide and Narrow Gates
Mt 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
The Wide Gate – Many enter it. It leads to death.
The Narrow Gate – Few find it. It leads to life.
The Wise and Foolish Builders
Mt 7:24-27
The Wise Builder – Hears and practices the teachings of Jesus. Survives the storms.
The Foolish Builder – Hears but does not practice those teachings. House falls.
The Parable of the Sower
Matt 13:1-9, 18-23
Some Seed Fell Along the Path.
Some Seed Fell on Shallow, Rocky Soil.
Some Seed Fell Among Thorns and Weeds.
Some Seed Fell on Fertile Soil.
The Pearl of Great Value
Mt 13:45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, 46 and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
A Merchant Shopped for Pearls.
He Found One Pearl of Great Value.
He Sold All He Had and Bought It.
The Kingdom of Heaven is Like That Pearl.
The Parable of the Net
Mt 13:47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea, and gathering fish of every kind; 48 and when it was filled, they drew it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good fish into containers, but the bad they threw away. 49 “So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The Net – The Gospel Going into the World
The Catch – Fish of Every Kind
The Separation – Judgment of the Wicked
The Prodigal Son – Who Are You Like?
Luke 15:11-32
The Younger Son – lost in sin, ready to repent and return to God.
The Older Brother – proud of yourself, resentful of sinners who want to follow God.
The Father – kind, forgiving, compassionate, eager to welcome lost sinners home.
Jesus the Light of the World (The Man Born Blind)
John 9
I was Blind.
I was Washed.
Now I See!
Jesus is the Answer
John 14:1-6
The Way – Without him there is no Going.
The Truth – Without him there is no Knowing.
The Life – Without him there is no Growing.
Because He Lives
Matt 28:1-8
Come and See.
Go and Tell.
Acts 2: The First Gospel Sermon
The Crowd (Pentecost)
The Christ (Peter’s Message)
The Conviction (Pierced to the Heart)
The Conversion (Repentance and Baptism)
The Church (Add Together)
The Conversion of Saul / Paul
Acts 9
Who He Was – Persecutor of Christians.
Who He Met – Jesus Christ in Glory.
Who He Became – Proclaimer of the Gospel.
Three Reasons for Joy
Rom 5:1-11
Past – We rejoice in Christ’s sacrifice, because he reconciled us to God.
Future – We rejoice in hope of the glory of God, because we are going to heaven.
Present – We rejoice in our troubles, because we grow through them.
We Do Not Lose Heart!
2 Cor 4
Because We Have a God-Centered Purpose (2 Cor 4:1-6)
Because We Have a God-Centered Treasure (2 Cor 4:7-12)
Because We Have a God-Centered Faith (2 Cor 4:13-18)
From my friend and colleague Dr. George Carman:
Timothy:  Never Too Soon!
Phil 2:19-20 – Timothy became such a great servant of God that Paul proclaimed there was no one like him. How did that happen?
It is never too early to begin our journey of faith, Prov 22:6.
Timothy had a mother and grand-mother that taught him from infancy, 2 Tim 1:3-5.
Timothy had a good reputation from his youth, Acts 16:1-2.
Timothy joined Paul as a traveling evangelist and became an example to all who knew him, 2 Tim 3:14-15.
Things Successful Christians Do
They say something to God every day (Pray), 1 Thes 5:17; Psm 107:2.
They let God say something to them every day, (Read and study the Bible) 2 Tim 2:15.
They do something for God every day, James 1:22; Gal 6:9-10.
Doing so will help them to “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord,” 2 Pet 3:15.
Measuring Our Soul  2 Cor 13:5-6
From time-to-time we need to take a close look at our Christian life.  We need to learn how to measure our soul:
By our love for God and Jesus, John 14:21, 23.
By our love for each other, 1 Jn 4:20-21.
By our influence (What do others see in us?), Mt 4:13-16.
By our fruit, Gal 6:7-8; John 15:8
The Divine Visitor
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him and he with me”, Rev 3:20.
Jesus knocks as a physician to heal our sin-sick souls, Mt 9:12.
Jesus knocks as a teacher, Christ, “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, Col 2:3.
Jesus knocks as a bridegroom seeking a bride (the church), “Come, I will show you the Bride (the church), the wife of the Lamb (Jesus)”, Rev 21:15
When Jesus knocks on the door of our heart, we need to open the door that He might come in.
Three Great Words
Come: Mt 11:28
Become: John 1:11-12
Overcome: 1 John 5:4-5
We cannot overcome unless we become and we cannot become unless we come. Come to Jesus, He will save you.
From my friend and colleague Joe Slater:
Paul's Three "I Am's" Romans 1:14-16
I am a debtor (v. 14)
I am ready (v. 15)
I am not ashamed (v. 16)

“Gone with the Wind” – More than Just a Movie



It was sensational. It was controversial. It was historic. In 1939 the film “Gone with the Wind” crossed a major line in the movie industry, provoking excitement and criticism. The producers also drew huge profits by doing so, as they intended. Their shocking move was immensely successful, at least from an economic point of view.

What was it? Simply this. The movie included the word “damn,” in the very famous last line. Rhett said to Scarlett, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a _____.”

Prior to the film's release, censors objected to the use of the word in the film. The word had been prohibited by the 1930 Motion Picture Production Code. Yes, prohibited! Why? Well, to those with traditional values and religious convictions, to “damn” a person was to wish that person condemned to hell. That is how the word originated. People who feared God, and believed in the reality of hell, did not use the word in polite speech. They would shudder if they heard someone else say it.

But the risk paid off. True, the producers had ridiculed current social values and offended the consciences of many. But they likely anticipated a huge payoff, and they got it. They may have figured that the initial criticism would die down, and it did. Most people would pay to see the film anyway. After all, any customers who hesitated would hear how outstanding the film was as a whole. They would justify seeing the movie – overlooking what they found offensive – and they would buy their tickets. After all, they might ask, was it really that big of a deal after all?

The more I have thought about the explosive step that those producers took, the more I have realized what is going on in our declining culture.

In my years I have seen this "Wind" strategy used effectively many times. The movie industry, a major national retail chain, or another commercial interest decides to add something questionable, objectionable, or even outright immoral. Then these events seem to follow in order:

The instigator (movie company, merchant, etc.) proudly goes public, advertising its bold new move.

Initially, many with conservative values publicly object. They may refuse to support the agenda with their money, because it genuinely violates their consciences. They are also concerned about the potential damage to society that may result.

Then those who accept or embrace the change, or see it as rather harmless, accuse the conscientious conservatives of being self-righteous or of making much ado about nothing. “They are so strict and so judgmental!”

The instigator enjoys the publicity and the profits that it has generated.

The boundary line of acceptable practice moves farther left once more.

Those who have not moved with the shifting sand are then ridiculed and marginalized as bigots or fanatics. They are treated as a tiny majority and called the “religious right;” they are defined as being off-center, on the fringe. It is they, not the instigators of the new morality, who are the extremists. How dare they say that people should not support such changes with their money or their influence? How picky and mean can people be?

Those in search of bigger profits and more customers then look for the next controversial move that they can make to repeat the cycle on a grander scale. It may be disturbing. It may hurt marriages, families, children, and friends. But it will make money for sure. And, hey, people will get over it and even reward it.

In my generation I have seen this pattern used effectively to move many boundaries. These include the growing acceptance of premarital sexual relations, the promotion of adultery, the breakup of the traditional family, the use of rude, crude, disrespectful language, the open description of private body parts and functions, the weakening role of the male in the American family, social and gender engineering, abortion, and more. I have seen high standards lowered and seemingly eliminated. I have seen movie ratings like "PG-13" slide all over the place.

I fear that I will see the "Wind" pattern again, and again, and again. I am even more concerned for the generations that follow me.

The title itself, “Gone with the Wind,” was intended to describe a culture that was becoming a thing of the past. The life that Rhett and Scarlett had known would exist no longer. Ironically enough, we must ask ourselves in this post-Christian era, “Will the God-fearing, Bible-believing, people-loving culture that we have known become … ‘gone with the wind?’”

I am alarmed. I am ashamed. How have people with solid convictions – how have I myself – allowed such intrusions to occur? Where are the defensive linemen, who will plant ourselves and say, “Enough! You are not taking one more inch of this field!”

Join me in affirming what Scripture says:

Rom 1:28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

"Gone with the Wind." It really is more than just a movie. It's a movement.

It's Easier - and Better - to Do Right


Dr. Bill Bagents is my very good friend, and he and I were colleagues and coworkers during our time working with Heritage Christian University and the Mars Hill church of Christ. I always appreciate his thoughtful writing, and I want to share this article he recently wrote.

IT’S EASIER - AND BETTER - TO DO RIGHT

It’s easier to do right than to wish that you had. Do you hear that statement as proverb, truism, or cliché? I lean toward truism, but the reason for that is elusive.

“It’s easier to do right than” makes a thought-provoking sentence starter. Consider these options and feel free to add your own:

It’s easier to do right than to deal with the consequences of a less noble choice. Think of lying King Saul in 1 Samuel 15 and the Amalekite in 2 Samuel 1.

It’s easier to do right than to face the guilt of letting God down. Think of David in Psalm 51 and Judas in Matthew 27.

It’s easier to do right than to try to explain why you didn’t. Think of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3 and Aaron in Exodus 32.

It’s easier to do right than to let yourself down. Think of Paul in Romans 7.

Maybe we should change the sentence starter and think further.

It’s better to do right than to miss the blessings that the right action will bring. Think of Abram vs. Lot in Genesis 13.

It’s better to do right than to let evil erode your character. Think of Cain in Genesis 4.

It’s better to do right than to give in to the status quo. Think Romans 12:1-2

It’s better to do right than to let your critics be right. Think of David and his brother in 1 Samuel 17:28-29.

It’s better to do right than to give the devil a foothold. Think of Ephesians 4:27.

It’s better to do right than to put your family in harm’s way. Think of Achan in Joshua 7.

It’s better to do right and rely on God to settle accounts. Think of Colossians 3:23-24.

It’s better to do right even if that puts your life in danger. Think of Daniel’s three friends in Daniel 3 and Daniel himself in Daniel 6.

It’s better to do right, even if it costs you your life. Think of Revelation 2:10, Hebrews 11:35-40, and John the Baptist in Matthew 14. Bluntly, it’s just always better to do right for the right reason to God’s glory, no matter what the immediate outcome.
