Another Sermon Outline By Brian A. Yeager
Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
A. We can look around us and find plenty to be troubled about (Galatians 1:4 and I John 5:19).
1. We certainly live in times wherein evil grows more and more (II Timothy 3:13).
2. Yet, evil being in the world is not something brand new (Ecclesiastes 1:9; cf. John 3:19-21).
B. Sometimes we find trouble on every side and need to remember we are not forsaken (II Corinthians 4:8-10 and II Corinthians 7:5-7).
1. Though God does not work in a miraculous manner today in our lives (I Corinthians 13:8-13), God will never abandon us (Hebrews 13:5-6; cf. Acts 14:17).
2. Faithful brethren will always be there too (John 15:12-13, Romans 16:1-4, Philippians 2:24-30, I Thessalonians 4:9-10, and I Thessalonians 5:11).
3. We ought not “get down” over things in this world (Psalms 32:11, Psalms 40:16, and Philippians 4:6-7).
II. Body: That which ought to keep us from being troubled most is that we have a great future ahead of us (John 14:1-3).
A. What you can see the Father has done (i.e. Isaiah 12:2-5), we can trust in Jesus for as well (John 3:35 and John 13:3).
1. No one can righty separate their love for the Father from their love for Christ (I John 2:23-24).
2. Jesus wants us to know we’re in good hands with Him at the helm (John 10:7-18; 27-30, and Hebrews 11:24-26).
B. Jesus has gone to prepare a place of us (Hebrews 11:8-16).
1. We have a new habitation to think about (Hebrews 13:14 and II Peter 3:13-14).
2. Thus, we should be able to avoid allowing the temporary things to trouble us (II Corinthians 4:13-5:1).
C. Jesus is coming back to take us with Him to the Father in Heaven (I Corinthians 15:20-24).
1. The return of Christ and the resurrection at that time is clearly our hope (John 5:28-29, John 11:24-25, Acts 1:9-11, and I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
2. Brethren, we need to be looking forward to the coming of Christ (Philippians 3:20, II Timothy 4:6-8, and Hebrews 9:28).
III. Conclusion: John 14:27-28
