26 Key Bible Sermon Topics
By Dr. Norman Robertson

Pastor John Osteen (the late pastor and founder of Lakewood Church) had a tremendous impact on my life and was undoubtedly one of the wisest men of God I’ve ever met! In 1985 he came to minister in South Africa at Rhema Bible Church where I was an associate pastor and instructor at Rhema Bible Training Centre. At that time his church, Lakewood, in Houston was running more than 6000 members and he told me the way to build a great church was to “Feed the sheep – not beat the sheep.” He further told me that “Hungry people will always go looking for a good restaurant” and the real secret to church growth is to establish your congregation on a steady, nutritious, well-balanced diet of God’s Word!!

Pastor Osteen then gave me a list of 26 key Bible topics, which he called “Spiritual Vitamins.” This list of 26 sermon topics he used himself every year – preaching/teaching a short two-week series on each topic – to develop a congregation that is spiritually healthy and growing in faith…

In closing I want to leave you with something else that Pastor Osteen emphasized to me several times in our conversation – he said, “Always stick to the basics, don’t preach/teach some deep revelation. Those who go after some deep revelation usually get so deep they end up getting drowned!”

“Another thing – keep it simple. Remember as God’s ministers we are called to feed the sheep not giraffes. Keep it on a level where the people of God can grasp what you are saying, feed on it, use it and then live it out!”

I pray this information is helpful to you!
