Sermon Outline :: Putting the Gospel to Work
by Vance Havner
The good news has been denied, it’s been defended, and it’s been declared; but what it needs most is to be demonstrated. The best argument for Christianity is a Christian.
There is nothing distinctive about many church members today. They’ve lost their identity because they’ve lost their identification. They’re lost in the crowd, assimilated, amalgamated, homogenized, and meshed into the mass.
- There’s a time for the declaration of the gospel. Paul said, “I declare to you the gospel.”
- There’s a time for the defense of the gospel. Paul said, “I am set for the defense of the gospel.”
- There’s a time for the demonstration of the gospel. Paul said, “Christ liveth in me,” and that’s the best way to demonstrate it.
The gospel works, but the world needs to see it work in you and me.
