Sermon Series Idea #3: Rooted
The Rooted Sermon Series developed from my experience with our small groups. As I led a group and visited other groups, most of the questions asked were actually basic Biblical doctrine questions. What I discovered is that most Christians don’t have a grasp of the fundamentals of our faith. This is how I began the Rooted series:
So many times, when things get rough and overwhelming, many Christians bail out. There’s nothing inside that holds them to their faith and they fold. Christians need to be well rooted in the faith. When we’re well rooted, even if everything is stripped away, we still have solid roots by our faith in Jesus.
As a student of theology, I loved preaching this series. I loved taking the Bible and teaching what it had to say about the foundational pillars of our faith. The people’s reaction was amazing. They really soaked it up. This series firmed up the foundation of our people and the church as a whole.
Rooted was a 15 sermon series – almost 4 months. It’s one of the longer series I’ve preached, but I wanted to make sure we covered all the essentials. Here’s a quick look at the sermon subjects. I won’t elaborate as the topics are straight-forward:
- Sermon 1 – The Bible
- Sermon 2 – What is God like?
- Sermon 3 – The Trinity
- Sermon 4 – Prayer
- Sermon 5 – Angels, Demons, and Spiritual Warfare
- Sermon 6 – Baptism and Communion
- Sermon 7 – Sin
- Sermon 8 – Jesus Christ
- Sermon 9 – The Resurrection and Ascension
- Sermon 10 – Becoming a Christian
- Sermon 11 – Sanctification, Perseverance, and Assurance
- Sermon 12 – Death
- Sermon 13 – What will happens when Jesus returns?
- Sermon 14 – The Final Judgment
- Sermon 15 – Heaven
Take Advantage of the New Year
Maybe these three ideas will get your gears turning about what you can preach beginning the new year. And these sermons will preach at any time during the year, as well.
Of course, I have these series in books of their own. They are available at the following links:
- Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Sermon Series Box Set 3
- Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Fresh Sermon Series
- Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Rooted Sermon Series
If you’re beginning the new year with a sermon series, tell me about it in the comments. I’d also like to hear the subjects of any sermon you’re using to start the new year.
