The Bible is a Transforming Power

Sermon Reference: 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Hebrews 4:12-13

Perhaps the reason why we are disinterested in the Bible is because we don’t fully apprehend what the Bible claims to be. The truth is: if you are committed to the status quo in your life, then by all means don’t dive into the transforming power that is the Scripture.

Sermon Points:

  • The God Who Speaks
  • God’s Words and Our Words
  • God’s Words and Our Lives

The Bible is Wisdom Literature

Scripture Reference: Deuteronomy 4:5-6

More times than not, we want to read the Bible like an answer book, looking for a technique that always produces a good result. But the Bible is wisdom literature. It teaches us to be wise, only as we immerse ourselves in its story and truth.

Sermon Points:

  • The Bible Is More Than A Rule Book
  • The Bible is Wisdom Literature
  • Why Does It Matter

The Bible is Divine & Human

Scripture Reference: 2 Peter 1:16-21
So is the Bible a book created by God or by the hands of sinful men? While we often say the correct answer, “Both!” oftentimes we fail to realize how differently that conviction leads us to look at the world around us and how we picture a Christian’s mission in the world.

Sermon Points:

  • The Problem of the Bible’s Humanity
  • The Solution of the Bible’s Humanity
  • The Application of the Bible’s Humanity

The Bible is Self-Attesting

Scripture Reference: Luke 16:19-31

The vast majority of the objections our secular world has with accepting the Bible for what its come from the failure to understand the kind of tool the Bible is. Getting clear on the nature of Scripture is essential to growing in the wisdom it wants to impart.

Sermon Points:

  • The Bible and Certainty
  • The Bible and Sufficiency
  • The Bible and Authenticity

The Metamorphosis

Scripture Reference: Romans 12:1-2

Paul says that there is a life altering metamorphosis that changes every Christian into a servant of Christ. But HOW that transformation happens very succinctly gathers together all the grace Paul has unpacked throughout the book and shows us that it all happens, “by the mercies.”

Sermon Points:

  • The Sacrifice
  • The Body
  • The Mercy
