I Am Ready (Acts 9)

by George W. Truett | Sermon Series

Dr. Truett shares from Acts 9, in which Saul is encountered by Jesus on his road to Damascus. George W. Truett encourages all of us to respond as Paul did, to boldly share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Paul shows, we are to be ready to be of service to the Lord wherever, however, and no matter the cost. We should be willing to endure any sort of toils, labors, and difficulties for the sake of the dynamic, transforming Gospel that turned a vengeful Saul into a faithful Paul.

It is Expedient for You that I Go Away (John 16)

Truett marvels that we have something even better than Jesus walking alongside us. Every believer has ready access at all times to the Holy Spirit who empowers us to do His work.

Go Bravely On-I Will not Fail Thee (Joshua 1)

by George W. Truett | Sermon Series

Joshua faces the enormous task of leading Israel into the Promised Land following the passing of Moses. The Lord encourages Joshua to be brave because He will be with him. This promise is applicable for us and we can capitalize on it by giving God primacy in our lives no matter what He has called us to do. We can bravely put our hands to the work before us and trust in Christ for victory.

by George W. Truett | Sermon Series

Dr. Truett encourages us all to share the Gospel with a sense of urgency, for a wise man is alert to the eternal condition of the souls of those around him and swift to act. This message was delivered at a time when many in his congregation were sending, or about to send, their young men into WWII service.

As Christians, this standard is achieved through service, which George W. Truett defines as “doing good to all the people you can in all the ways you can for as long as you can.”
