Sermon outline for Sunday, May 1, 2016
Pastor Richard C Klueg

Join Our Guilt Trip

2 Corinthians 11:7-11

“Stop trying to lay a guilt trip on me!”

Guilt by Gratitude“After all I have sacrificed for you …”
humbling myself so that you might be exalted

Paul’s humiliation

Their exaltation

Why was this necessary?

Consider Christ’s sacrifice for you

Guilt by Comparison: “Why can’t you be more like _________?”
I robbed other churches
the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied my need

Consider the example of Christ for you.

Guilt by Love: “No one loves you like I do”
And why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do!

When someone loves you a lot and shows it

Ephesians 3:18-19

Consider Christ’s great love for you.

A guilt trip that leads to Jesus is a good one to take!
