Here is the outline for the 3rd message in the series the Tipping Point.

THE TIPPING POINT
Pastor Steve Lummer
pt 3
Almost Persuaded
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.”  Acts 26:28 (nkjv)



INSIGHTS ON INFLUENCE.

Influence happens through us and to us.
Influence is either positive or negative.
Influence last longer than we do

Why do we resist influence ?

Numbers 14
They FORGOT the PAST. –  Exodus 1:14
They STUCK the PRESENT. –
They FEARED  the FUTURE. –

PERSUADING FACTORS.

1. PRESSURE CAN PERSUADE US TOWARD CHANGE.
2. PROBLEMS CAN PERSUADE US TOWARD CHANGE.
3. PAIN CAN PERSUADE US TOWARD CHANGE.
4. PLEASURE CAN PERSUADE US TOWARD CHANGE.

AGRIPPA’S REASONS FOR REJECTING THE INVITATION.

1. HE ENJOYED SIN.
“pleasures of sin for a season.”  Hebrews 11:25 (kjv)

2. HE WOULD NOT BOW TO ANOTHER KING.
“Every knee will bow” Romans 14:11

3.  HE WOULD NOT BELIEVE.
‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ Luke 18:13

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. 2 Corinthians 5:10-11 (niv)
