Sermon Outline On Psalm 107:1-7

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

for his steadfast love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

those he redeemed from trouble

and gathered in from the lands,

from the east and from the west,

from the north and from the south.

Some wandered in desert wastes,

finding no way to an inhabited town;

hungry and thirsty,

their soul fainted within them.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,

and he delivered them from their distress;

he led them by a straight way,

until they reached an inhabited town.

When John Benjamin Wesley was only 6 years old the rectory at Epworth was set on fire. John was in the second story window screaming for help. All the other family members were safe outside group of men form human ladder to rescue him. From that point on Susannah Wesley called John, “A brand plucked from the burning.” (This a reference to a vision of Joshua in Zachariah 3:2) John shared with the world the rest of his life how he was redeemed by God that day in 1709.

On May 24, 1738 John Wesley entered these words in his journal: In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street, where one was reading Luther’s preface to the Epistle to the Romans. About a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.

Ten years after John Benjamin Wesley was ordained a priest in the Church of England. He had this life changing experience at Aldersgate. John continued his ministry with increased zeal. He constantly shared with others how God had been good to him.

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so…

Three days prior to John’s Aldersgate experience, on May 21, 1738, Charles Wesley had a similar experience. On the one year anniversary of this experience, Charles wrote a hymn telling the world about it. The hymn was called “For the Anniversary Day of One’s Conversion.”

With the words of this hymn, Charles Wesley shared with the world his personal experience of God. He shared how he knew God’s love for him. He shared how he knew God’s steadfast love endures forever.

You may not be familiar with many of this hymn’s 17 verses. You are familiar with verse 7.

O for a thousand tongues to sing

my dear Redeemer’s praise!

The glories of my God and King,

the triumphs of his grace.

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so…
