The analysis is based on Osteen's books and sermons. and enthusiasm are second to none. I am committed to you—commit- ted to helping you to live your Your Best Life Now.
Life is full of things that we don't like, disappointments, a friend betrayed us, we see these things as being negative, thinking, "That was bad. Didn't work out, my prayers weren't answered". But God won't allow a difficulty unless he's going to somehow use it for our good. This means everything that happens in life, we may not understand it, but if you'll keep the right attitude, it'll push you further into your destiny. Every closed doors, the delays, the person that did you wrong, the loan that didn't go through, God says, "It's all good.
We think if I can just get by but God wants you to prosper. This is where you tell the story. You story it for the people. Here is where you emphasize the contrast you just created in Introduction 3. Intern Psychological State of Man. He never thought he would leave situation x but God exceeding His expectation. One moment changed his life. Exhortation: God has some of these I never dreamed blessing or moments in store for you. What is your limited environment that you think you will never get out of?
Our God exceeds our expectations. Just like Peter said it, so God says it to you.
Prophetic Declaration: I believer God is about to exceed your expectations. Even though His expectation was low God did not count this against him. The fact that you are hear today tell me you have enough faith for God to catapult you to new level.
Like this man you man feel like you are like this man with a few disadvantages. God showed up and exceeded. He is going to exceed your expectation. Main Point: God exceeds our expectations so that God can get a testimony out of you. Text: The people in the Temple were in awe.
Exhortation: People in your life are going to be in awe of what God is going to do for you.
They will wonder They will wonder How did you get well? How did you get that guy that gal to marry you. How did you get that financial blessing? So I think the people already know what they're doing wrong, and I certainly believe in hell. But to me, when I see thousands of people before me, it just doesn't come out of me to say, 'You guys are terrible, and you're going to hell.
You've got to live an obedient life, but for every mistake you've made, there's mercy there, and I believe we can do better. They have a son and daughter. He has said sin is human nature, nobody's perfect, and he is not judging, but God is the judge.
Osteen has also stated he believes a person can be freed from a lifestyle of homosexuality; it is a process and God can free anyone of any sin or addiction. He further revealed that he had not studied the religion. Horton stated that the problem with Osteen's message is that it makes religion about us instead of about God. Framing the Sermon Every Osteen program begins and ends the same way which creates a sense of ritual for regular viewers.
As the sermon begins, Osteen commands the stage. The spinning globe against the draped curtains is the only prop besides the podium. One must look closely to catch him occasionally turn a page as he moves from side to side. Am I kind to my children?
Am I courteous to the man on the freeway? Am I friendly to the lady at the grocery store? Osteen does not begin by reading a passage of Scripture and then arguing from the text that people need to be gentle and kind. This becomes a pattern in this sermon. Osteen makes a point, illustrates it for about three minutes, and then shares a Bible verse to provide the moral authority and encouragement to act on it.
Osteen references 9 biblical passages in this sermon.
Softening the blow So how can Osteen fans say he never makes them feel they are being preached to or condemned? The answer lies in two key factors. First, his even-keel demeanor throughout the sermon never threatens or intimidates the audience.
His voice remains calm. His eyes never squint or his nostrils flare. He never picks up his Bible during the sermon.
He does not point fingers or pound the podium. He speaks positively about his wife and children in stories, calling them by name. This is routine for Osteen. Not only does he tell personal stories, but they are often humorous— even to the point of self-deprecation. He becomes more approachable and gains credibility through habitual exposure.
