Three Point Sermon Outline


The Purpose of Preaching


Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. ~2 Timothy 4:2 (NLT)

This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. ~ Titus 1:1 (NLT)

For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds. You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don’t let anyone disregard what you say. ~ Titus 2:11-15 (NLT)

The purpose of this sermon outline is to give you an outline that your congregation can follow easily.

The Goal of your sermon should be to take an inspired topic that our Heavenly Father has given you and present it to His children in a manner they can understand and will be able to apply the main points of your sermon into their daily lives.
