SERMON SEEDS P2 FOR WEEK OF 1/9/17

SERMON SEEDS

P2 – THE WEEK OF JANUARY 9, 2017

 

Sermon Seeds is a 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. Some of these outlines are new. Some have been shared in the past. This week, the outlines have all been shared previously for the Christmas Season.         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.

1 KINGS 17:17-24 – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

During a prophesied drought, God provided for the needs of Elijah the Prophet at the home of a poor widow (1 Kings 17:8-16). During this time tragedy struck and the widow’s son died. Elijah did not panic, give up, or ignore his responsibility. Instead, he got “Up close and personal” with the problem.

Elijah Accepted Responsibility – Vss. 17-19

He took the dead child out of the widow’s hands, brought him into his own room, and laid him on his own bed.  There are times when God will move us to take responsibility through personal involvement.

Elijah Prayed Passionately – Vss. 20-22

Elijah knew that only God could rectify the problem.  He prayed sincerely, passionately, and continually until the answer came.  This was not the last time Elijah would prove himself to be a man of fervent prayer (1 Kings 18:41-46, James 5:16-18, Matthew 7:7-11). 

Elijah Demonstrated Authenticity – Vss. 23-24

Elijah proved himself to be a man of God. One of several ways that we prove ourselves to be men and women of God is by our answered prayers (John 14:12-14).

MALACHI 3:6-12 – GIVING WITH INTEGRITY

NOW AND THEN – STUDIES IN MALACHI #5

·      The Levites, who were to be supported by the tithes of the Jewish people were evidently not receiving the tithes. Nehemiah 13:10-12

·      In this passage, Malachi makes an appeal for giving with integrity.

GOD'S ACCUSATION - Vs. 6-8

·      Vs. 6 – God’s people do test Him. If He were not patient, none of us would be here.

·      If God were not patient and unchangeable in His character, the Jews would have been consumed. Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, Hebrews 13:8, James 1:17

·      God’s goodness and faithfulness should lead to repentance. Lamentations 3:22-23, Romans 2:4

·      Vs. 7 – This is a wonderful principle. When we return to God, God returns to us.               Jeremiah 15:19, Isaiah 55:6-7, Revelation 2:4-5

·      Vs. 8 – God realized that He had to spell out to the people how they robbed God, or they just wouldn’t get it.

·      People forget that God owns everything.  Psalm 24:1-2, Psalm 50:10, Psalm 95:3-7

·      God’s people were to tithe to support the priests and the Levites. Numbers 18:8-28

·      Every third year, a tithe was collected to be used locally for the poor.                          Deuteronomy 14:28-29

GOD'S ACTION - Vs. 9

·      Because of their disobedience in giving, they were not receiving God’s best.

·      In one sense of the word, we cannot afford to cheat God.

GOD'S ADVICE - Vs. 10a

·      In the Old Testament, tithes were brought into the storehouse to be made available as needed.

·      In the New Testament, giving is to be regular (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), voluntary, cheerful  (2 Corinthians 9:6-7), and sacrificial (2 Corinthians 8:1-5, Luke 21:1-4, Acts 4:34-37).  

GOD'S ASSURANCE - Vs. 10b -12

·      God will give great blessing when we give properly.

·      We should not give to get, but when we honor God, He honors us. Matthew 6:19-21, 33,  2 Corinthians 9:6-12, Philippians 4:18-19

·      Vs. 11 – Insects would be destroyed, and crops would come to full maturity.

·      When we give to God’s work sacrificially, it seems that things go further, because God rebukes our “devourers”.

·      Vs. 12 – When we are obedient, and God pours out his blessings, others will take notice.

Jesus rules over nature. He can calm any storm. Matthew 8:23-27

 

CONSIDER CHRIST AS CORRECTOR – Matthew 14:34-36

When Adam and Eve sinned, sickness and death entered the world.  As God, Jesus corrected sickness and death as He healed the sick and raised the dead.  Luke 7:11-16

 

CONSIDER CHRIST AS COMPLETOR – Matthew 26:26-30

The Old Covenant says, “You will be, if you obey”.  The New Covenant says, “You are because you believe.” The bread and the cup are memorials for the price Jesus paid to complete the New Covenant.   Exodus 19:4-6, 1 Peter 2:9, 21-25

A Sample Expression of Faith – “Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner who has no hope. I turn to you for help, believing you died for me. I accept you as my Lord and Savior, my only hope for Heaven.”

·      There are changes to enjoy when we are going to Heaven. – Romans 5:1, Romans 8:37-39, Romans 14:17-18
