Welcome to the Sermons by Delbert Young website. The purpose of this site is to share freely sermons preached and taught by me, Delbert Young, over my thirty years of ministry. Hopefully, you will find these thousands of sermons insightful and helpful. Many of the sermons have videos and audios. Nearly all have notes. Please use what you want. I learned from many preachers and teachers and used what I gained from them to make my sermons better. Hopefully, you can use my studies and make your sermons and teachings better. I desired to leave a library of what I'd taught and done over the years of my ministry. I could think of no better way of doing this than providing it free on the internet for as long as there is an internet.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless, Pastor Delbert Young

When Jesus Gets In Your Boat (7,058 views) Have you ever had a life-changing experience where you look back and say, “That changed my life!”? The experience not only changed how you lived, but it changed why you would die. Simon, James, and John have such an experience in this week’s Luke study.

Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage, and Adultery (6,318 YouTube views). Jesus said many shocking statements. The reason we continue to listen to him is we’ve learned within his shocking statements there are shocking truths with the ability to shock our hearts and restore our life. They radically change our lives, our families, and our society. This is one of those statements. This is the most controversial message I preached. THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE CHAPTER 16 Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage, and Adultery (Luke 16:18) By Pastor Delbert Young Audio Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage, and Adultery – Luke 16:18 Scriptures: Luke 16:18, Matthew 19:10, Matthew 5:27-34, Matthew 19:3, Matthew 19:4,
Gossip and the Sick Mind – (5,472 views to date) Romans 1:28-30 teaches there is something wrong with the mind of people who gossip and slander. They have depraved minds. The King James’ version says reprobate minds. We don’t think in those terms because we do not want to think our own minds are depraved. Think it or not, gossip and slander are depravities. We are talking about LOCKING AND UNLOCKING THE TONGUE. My goal today is to try to help us all. I will try to do it by shaking us, not by making us shout and feel good. I want to remind you it
Expect God’s Favor (3,515 YouTube views) – If you were literally spending a day with Jesus, you would expect some special things to happen. You wouldn’t fear anything. You would expect God’s favor. You are walking with Jesus you’d expect to receive preferential treatment. Expect God’s favor and walk in it by declaring it. When you pray, pray the favor of God upon your life. Let us begin with an explanation of what I mean by “God’s Favor.” God’s Favor is when God causes people to desire to become a problem solver in your life and they do – divine connections. God’s Favor is when unexpected
6 Handling Critical People. (3,380 YouTube views) Handling critical people is not difficult when we realize people will criticize you. Realize everyone does not feel critical about you. We must listen to wise criticism. Dismiss foolish criticism. Evaluate a critical person’s mental and physical state. By doing this, you will position yourself among the wise. The first thing to realize is that people are going to criticize you no matter who you are or what you do. It was Abraham Lincoln who said while being criticized, “You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the
7 Handling Overly Needy People (3,010 YouTube views). Overly needy people will literally suck the life and resources out of you. They drain you emotionally and fill you with guilt if you allow them. If you do not set boundaries, you will be contributing over and over and again and again to their addictions. Christians should be incredibly generous. Here at Life Gate, we do a good job giving help to needy people. We have our alms account specifically set up to help, but I must admit that often we give to the “OVERLY NEEDY” and not those in need. What I mean by OVERLY NEEDY PEOPLE is people
(2,682 views) Jesus, now teaching, began by asking a question. If I asked you, “What is the kingdom of God like?” how would you reply? Would you think heaven? That’s what most Christians would say. Certainly if you’re not a Christian believer you would think heaven, but Jesus isn’t talking about heaven. The kingdom of God is not heaven. What would you compare the kingdom of God to? Jesus is about to give his own description and comparison of the kingdom of God, and it is impossible to understand the kingdom of God, what it is, and how it works unless we understand these principles.
Favor in the Middle of Trouble (2,425 views) – Job 10:12 THOU HAST GRANTED ME LIFE AND FAVOR, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit. Job said he didn’t understand why this was going on and could not understand why trouble happened to him, but one thing he did know. Job knew divine favor was coming to him. Favor was on its way. Job spoke God’s favor in the middle of his mess. No wonder God’s favor restored double. We are talking about the favor of God and saw the more favor minded we are, the more of God’s favor we receive. It’s because we are
(2185 views) Why Shepherds First – Have you ever thought, “Why shepherds were invited first to see the Christ child?” There were many people in Bethlehem. Why go out of town to announce Christ’s (Messiah) – Immanuel’s – birth to shepherds? If you were going out of town, why not tell Caesar Augustus or Quirinius? Why shepherds first? Here’s why. Jesus didn’t come to the rich and famous, the powerful and popular. Nor did he come to the monks and Pharisees who refuse to touch the dung of life. Jesus DID come to the stables and dung of life. He spent his time with the lowest
