It is with great pleasure I get to offer you these alliterated outlines. I have been doing alliterated expository sermons for over 30 years and find great satisfaction in preparing sermons.

I know we live in such busy days, especially for pastors, and even more so for Bi-Vocational ministers. Hopefully these sermons will be a useful tool as you study to design and deliver your weekly sermons.

Over the past 33 years I have had the opportunity to study homiletics at various places and read numerous homiletical materials. The greatest need I see is for ministers to find sermon material that is practical and presentable. I think you will enjoy reading this book and find that it will be useful in your sermon preparation.

If you have a passion for designing alliterated sermons, this book is for you. I have also designed some courses to help ministers to become better alliterators. If you want to check on my alliteration courses please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Dr. Donald Cantrell

(The old beagle in the thicket - March 21, 2009)

The Redemption of Jesus

I wonder if we really understand the depth of the redemptive act that was done in saving our lost souls. I was sitting in my study when my poodle started barking loudly and I could tell that Cocoa was not barking to just be barking. I looked out the window and saw that someone’s beagle had gotten loose and was roaming through the yard. I then noticed the long wire that was attached to its collar. I could not ignore the possible outcome if that wire got lodged and trapped the dog. I went outside and the dog ran down into a very thick briary thicket, a thicket that I did not want to go down into.

The dog was walking around in the thicket and I tried to coax it back into the yard to no avail. I decided to sit back and see if the dog would come back out, of course it did not, and it only went deeper and deeper into the thicket. I wanted to go and call the local county dog catcher but I was afraid that if I did this the dog would go farther into the thicket and never be found. The dog got hung up in the thicket as I stood and watched it from a high point in my yard. I was not dressed to go down into that thicket; I could see the briars, the weeds; and the thick bushes.

I am allergic to almost every weed on this earth and I did not have a long sleeved shirt on; but I waded down into the thicket in my T-shirt and my pajama bottoms. The dog thought that I was his enemy and tried to run from me; but he was stuck. It seemed that with each step I got scratched with the thorns and the briars, but I was the only one that could save this little beagle. I finally got a hold of the wire and begin to pull that old dog out of that thicket. The dog fought it every step of the way, he thought that I was his enemy; but I was his redeemer!

I finally got him to within 20 feet from my yard and his collar came off, I thought that he would bolt on me and I would never see him again. The old dog just sat there and looked at me, I was afraid to touch him. I finally got up enough never to pat him on the head and he begin to wag his old tail and that dog stood up and followed me out of that thicket. I patted him on the head and saw that he had an ID tag on his collar, so I tried coaxing him to my house so that I could call his owner. The old dog followed me towards my house and then he realized that he was free and he took off on a dead run toward the set of houses down the road.

I still had his collar and the dog was long gone. I took his collar and laid it in the road next to where I saw him go. I supposed that the story of that old beagle was over, but then I saw a woman wandering around looking for something so I approached her and asked her if she was looking for that old beagle. I was surprised when she told me no that she was looking for his collar. I showed her where the collar was and told her what had just happened. The woman looked back at me with tears in her eyes and told me that the collar was hers, but the long piece of wire was not hers. It seemed that someone had stole her dog and had tied it up with a piece of wire and the dog had gotten himself free; though he was free that old beagle was as lost as he could be.

I went back to my house and washed the blood off of my arms and changed my clothes because of what the thicket had done to them. In the future every time I look at the scratch marks on my arms I will think about that old dog. In the future every time I pass by that old thicket I will remember when I had to go down into it and save a dog that was lost and trapped. In the future every time I see that old briary, thorn filled, weedy thicket I will remember the redemptive act that Jesus did in saving my old lost and undone soul.

Romans 5: 6 - 10

6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
