“Food for Thought?” Sermon Outline 07/11/10 by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“Food for Thought?”  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

I love to eat. Our church has some of the greatest cooks in America. I’ve tasted the soups, pies, and salads that out of control could make a man literally as wide as he is tall.

I also love to think. I believe also that the right diet of proper thought life can make us bigger people as well.

I once heard there are three types of people.

  1. Those who make it happen.
  2. Those who watch it happen.
  3. Those who have no idea what happened.

“Most great achievers are great thinkers.”

1. Thinking Great Thoughts.

Philip. 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philip. 2:5-7 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

2 Tim. 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

2. Dreaming great Dreams.

Hebrews 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

3. Overcoming Temptations Attacking our Minds

2 Cor. 10:5 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;

  • Lust
  • Plots
  • Relationships

Healthy thinking is a dicpline of life. (Learned)

4. Developing thoughts.

  1. a. Write it down
  2. b. Rehearse the positive.
  3. c. Meditate on the promises.
  4. d. Speak your dreams.
  5. e. Develop a Plan and act on it.
