Since I’m preaching during all of 2008 at SJC, yesterday I began a new series on “The Attitudes of Christ” with the sermon, “Jesus, the Corageous.”

Here’s my outline, not a typical preacher’s three-pointer:


1. Courage to Speak the Truth, Matthew 15:10-20

– Context and story of the passage.
– Jesus did not speak to please at all costs.
– Jesus spoke the Father’s Principle (16-20).

2. Courage to Suffer on the Cross, John 12:27-36

– Context and story of the passage.
– Jesus did not run from the pain.
– Jesus served the Father’s Purpose (28).

Conclusion:

– Whether in word (speaking the truth or action (suffering
on the cross), Jesus showed courage.
– When we walk with Jesus, we will be courageous as well.

What do you think?
