SERMON SEEDS N10 FOR THE WEEK OF 11/14/16

SERMON SEEDS

N10 – THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 14, 2016

 

Sermon Seeds is a weekly mailing of brief sermon outlines from Pastor Jack Peters.  These outlines are meant to help other pastors and Bible Teachers in their own preparations, as well as students of the Word in their studies. 

These outlines are only "seeds".  They are not sermons ready for you to preach.  Feel free to improve on these outlines any way the Lord leads you.

These outlines are based on the King James Version of the Bible, but are usually a “fit” with other translations.

 MALACHI 2:10-16 – A MARRIAGE MESS

NOW AND THEN – STUDIES IN MALACHI – #4

·      God’s opinion of marriage -  Genesis 2:20-24, Mark 10:2-12

·      In this passage Malachi addresses two marital difficulties prevalent in his day.

A BASIC PRINCIPLE – Vs. 10

·      God is talking to Israel as a nation.

·      God created Israel from Abraham. Genesis 12:1-3, 18:18, 46:3

·      When we deal “treacherously”, we “are faithless” (ESV) with those who are in the same family.

·      Psalm 15 gives us some good examples of how to deal treacherously or break faith with fellow believers.

·      To profane the covenant of their Fathers would be to break God’s law. Exodus 19:3-8, Exodus 20:1-24:8

·      The basic principle is that we should not break faith with God’s people by breaking God’s covenant; that is, we should not disobey the laws that tell us how to treat fellow believers.

MIXED MARRIAGE – Vss. 2:11-12

·      Vs. 11 – The first example of being faithless is marrying “foreign” wives.

·      Israelites were marrying women who worshipped other Gods. This was historically a problem, especially in the days of Malachi. Ezra 9:1-2, Nehemiah 13:23-27, 1 Kings 11:1-8

·      Vs. 12 indicates a big penalty for those who intermarry with those who worshipped other Gods.

·      As Christians, we must avoid being “unequally yoked” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

DIVORCE– Vss. 13-16

·      Vs. 13-14a – God was not accepting their sacrifices and they wondered why.

·      Vs. 14b – The men had become faithless towards the wives of their youth.

·      Vs. 15 – God made them one to produce Godly offspring.

·      Vs. 16 – The one who divorces his wife “covers his garment with violence”.

·      They were those who showed partiality instead of teaching the Word of God accurately.

LUKE 17:12-19 etc. – EVIDENCES OF A THANKFUL HEART

 

We want to remind you that there are various ways that we can show our appreciation to the Lord for what He has done.  There are outward ways of expressing an inward, thankful heart.

 

In the Gospel of Luke we want to see 3 men who showed their appreciation for Jesus healing them in 3 ways. 

 

ONE WHO WORSHIPPED - Luke 17:11-19

 

Vss. 11-12 - Ten men were very sick. They had leprosy. It was a disease that ate at the skin, and made one an outcast per Jewish law.

Because they were outcasts, they stood afar off.

We had a problem like these lepers that was fatal.

It made us outcasts before God.

The problem was our sin.

 

Vs. 13 - These men had the right idea.  They called on the Lord Jesus to have mercy on them.  They had no other hope.

 

Like these men, we needed mercy.  We were dead in trespasses and sins.  The only one who could help us was the Lord Jesus, because it was Him who died for us.  Like these lepers, we needed to call on the Lord to be saved. Romans 10:17 says, For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Vs. 14 - These men were told to go show themselves to the priest.

For them to get back into society, they needed for the priest to pronounce them as "clean."  They took the step of faith to show themselves to the priest, taking Jesus at His word, and as they went, they were healed.

 

Our healing for salvation was similar.  We took God at his word, that he would save us, if we believed, and He did exactly what he promised. John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Vss. 15-16 - I think each man saw that he was healed. However, only one of them turned around, worshipped God, and gave thanks. What happened to the others?

I think that they were so busy wanting to get back to their lives, that they forgot to say "thank you" and to worship God. Here is a great reminder for you and I.  How thankful are we for what God has done for us?

 

Our sins have been forgiven.

We have a home in Heaven.

We have the Holy Spirit.

We have answered prayer.

We can't lose our salvation, if we are truly saved.

We are truly loved of God!

 

Shouldn't we, of all people be giving praise and adoration and thanksgiving to God?!

1 Timothy 1:12-17, Revelation 5:9-12

 

This thanksgiving season should be one of worship for those of us who know Christ personally.  We have reason to worship and praise God!

 

Vss. 17-19 - There was 90% more cleansed than were actually giving thanks.  I wonder if this percentage is true for us who are saved?  What percentage of us who are saved are truly thankful?

 

Let us make sure that we are among the ones who return to give thanks.

We do not like it very well when people fail to give thanks for what we've done.  Imagine how God must feel!

 

ONE WHO WALKED LUKE 18:35-43

 

Vs. 43 – Bartimaeus had his sight restored and followed Jesus after being healed. He also worshipped God because of his healing.

 

Bartimaeus reminds me that a truly thankful person is someone who will walk after Jesus.  Because of what Jesus has done for him in saving him, he will walk after and with Jesus. Luke 9:23-24, John 15:1-7

 

ONE WHO WITNESSED LUKE 8:26-39

 

Vs. 39 - Notice where the man was sent - to his own home. It meant going back to the people who knew him "when". It meant going back to the people who knew him best.

 

We are the ones who can best reach the ones we love.

We are the ones who can best reach the ones we know best.

We are the ones, who should show our appreciation for what the Lord has done for us, by telling others. Psalm 107:2, 1 Peter 3:15

PHILIPPIANS 1:9-11 – FIVE FOR LIFE

PHILIPPIANS – PARTNERSHIP IN THE GOSPEL #3

Christian, you only have one life before you will be judged by your Lord and Savior! What are you doing with it?

Thinking of the phrase “Only one life, ‘twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last”, I see in Paul’s prayer for the Philippians, five qualities for us to develop so that we can live a life that will bear fruit forever. We can call them “Five for Life”.

ABOUNDING LOVE – Vs. 9

Matthew 22:37-40, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 5:5, John 4:7-8, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a

Knowledge – John 15:4-5, Philippians 3:10

Discernment – Psalm 97:10, 1 John 2:15-17

EXCELLENT CHOICES – Vs. 10

Romans 12:1-2

INNER PURITY – Vs. 10

Philippians 4:8

OUTWARD INTEGRITY – Vs. 10

1 Corinthians 10:32-33, Colossians 3:4-10

FRUITFUL RIGHTEOUSNESS – Vs. 11

Galatians 5:22-23, Matthew 6:14-16, Ephesians 2:8-10, Proverbs 11:30, Philippians 4:13

_______________________________

 

REVELATION 5:12 – WORTHY OF WORSHIP

Revelation 5:12 (KJV) - Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

 

Colossians 3:17

 

Because the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of worship, He is worthy to receive:

 

1.     Power (and Authority) – Hebrews 1:1-3, Acts 2:32-36, How much authority does He really have in your life?

 

2.     Riches – Romans 12: 1 – Riches = Tithes (Money), Time, Talents, Thoughts, Trust

 

3.     Wisdom – 1 Corinthians 1:30, Ephesians 1:17

 

4.     Strength – John 15:4-5, Philippians 4:13

 

5.     Honor – Matthew 15:8, Philippians 4:8

 

6.     Glory – 2 Corinthians 10:17, Psalm 34:1-3

 

7.     Blessing – Psalm 103:2, Nehemiah 9:5-6
