Sermons for Spiritual Development – John Boruff

The following is a list of sermon subject titles that could be used in a series of preaching topical sermons. The objective would be to preach the basics first, and then over successive Sunday sermons, bring the congregation up into “the measure of the full stature of Christ” (Eph. 4:13; including myself). In essence, there would be three stages: (1) Salvation, (2) Sanctification, and (3) Charismatic Growth, in keeping with the old-time Pentecostal dictum: “Saved, Sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost.”
