SERMON SEEDS ARCHIVES

1 &2 CORINTHIANS

Through no fault of our own, about 5 years of Sermon Seeds was               deleted from the Website of the First Baptist Church.

We decided that it was time to begin archiving them in a different way.

Please be patient as we gradually archive these outlines.

1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-10 – RESURRECTION FOR EVERYONE

On Easter Sunday we remember the resurrection of Christ from the dead. Just

as the death of Jesus Christ was for everyone, so is the resurrection. In 1

Corinthians 15:1-11 we have a list of witnesses to the resurrection. I find it

striking that the resurrection of Christ was for each witness. It met a

need, having a purpose for the witness. Perhaps as we study these particular

people this morning you see yourself as having the same need as one of these

witnesses.

INTRODUCTION - Vss. 1-4 (Stress the Gospel message of verses 3-4.)

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST WAS FOR:

THE DENIER - Vs. 5 – Peter, who was so adamant about his loyalty, denied

Christ three times. Matthew 26:70-74, Luke 23:54-62. When Jesus arose from the

dead, he appeared to Peter in Luke 24:52, and gave Peter special attention

in John 21. Peter, the denier, needed to know that he was forgiven and still

useful in ministry for Christ.

THE DESERTER - Vs. 5 - The Apostles are called "the twelve" even though

there were now eleven. They had run when Jesus was in His darkest hour. Jesus

appeared to them with a message of peace and commission. See John 20:19-23.

THE COMMON MAN - Vs. 6 - Here was a group of believers who hadn't

necessarily denied Christ. They were not necessarily distinguished people.

They were probably an average cross-section of people, and yet Jesus

appeared to them. This reminds me that one does not have to be special to go

to Heaven, become saved, and feel the touch of the resurrection.

THE UNBELIEVER - Vs. 7 - This James was half-brother to Jesus. John 7:5

tells us that His brethren didn't believe on Jesus. James was touched by the

appearance of his brother. He became a believer.

THE MESSENGER - Vs. 7 - Here they are referred to as the apostles. They saw

Jesus more than once. As apostles, they were sent as messengers with the

Gospel. The Lord commissioned them to go out in Matthew 28:18-20. Because

they had seen the risen Lord they were effective messengers for Him. A true

witness for Christ must see Him as risen, or he has no message.

THE PERSECUTOR - Vss. 8-11 - Not only did Paul not believe in Jesus, but he

persecuted Jesus' followers. See Acts 8:1 and 9:1-2. The risen Jesus

appeared to Paul on the Damascus road (Acts 9).

Even those who persecute Jesus and His followers can be saved!

2 CORINTHIANS 5:14-21 – WHAT MOVES YOU?

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (KJV) - For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.                    

What constrains, compels, controls, or moves you into action? It should be Christ’s love for you. In this passage, He shows His love in three ways.

HE CLAIMED US – Vs. 21

Isaiah 64:6, John 3:16, Romans 6:10, John 1:12

HE CHANGED US – Vs. 17

  • A New Home
  • A New Boss
  • A New Comforter
  • A New Teacher and Guide
  • A New Power
  • A New Nature
  • A New Family
  • A New Purpose

SOLDIER TALK - 2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-6

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 - For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: [4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

2 Timothy 2:3-4 (KJV) - Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
