Sermon idea

I will never understand why I have such a hard time putting a sermon onto paper.  I can preach the whole thing in my head including Bible passages and examples but when I sit down at the computer to type it up, it all dries up and it’s some of the hardest work I’ve ever done.

Here is a sermon idea that keeps bouncing around in my head.  I’ve cant really seem to get it fleshed out in any form.  I’ve typed up a sermon based on it and it’s just horrible.  It has no flow to it, it wanders and jumps around and eventually goes no where.  So I give you my idea.  Maybe you can do something with it for me.


Heaven is a wonderful place.  As saved people we never have to worry about hell or eternal damnation.  There are many things written about it and we all look forward to the day when we are reunited with loved ones and no longer have to worry about pain or sadness.  The world we live in is getting darker and darker and the end is getting close.  We have a tendency to look towards and pray for the Rapture because of how dark and unfriendly this world is becoming.

Yet we have

Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. 

For those of us who are saved and on our way, the Rapture will be an amazing event.  We will finally be with Christ and get to see Him face to face.  However, after the Rapture comes the Tribulation.  For those left behind, it will be a horrific time of pain and suffering that for most won’t end with death.  When we pray for the Rapture, do we truly understand what it will mean for everyone else?


So there you have it.  A sermon idea I can do nothing with beyond this shell.  Soulwinning, Soul awareness, discipleship, love for the lost.  It’s all there and more yet I can find no way to make it come out in anything meaningful to anyone but me….
