Just Do It! The Seed

Sermon Text: Hebrews 11: 17(b) He who had received promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son,

Sermon Title: Just Do it! The Seed

Point 1: The seed must be sown Genesis 18: 10 – 12 Then the Lord said, I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son. Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. (11) Abraham and Sarah were already old and well advanced in years and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. (12) So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have this pleasure?”

Point 2: The soil must be good Genesis 18: 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son.”

Matt 13: 5ff A famer went out to sow his seed. (4) As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. (5) Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. (6) But when the sun came up, the plants scorched, and they withered because they had no root. (7) Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. (8) Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

Point 3: The sacrifice must be right vs.17(b) He who had received promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son,

John 12: 24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

Rom 11: 16 if the first is holy then the lump [rest] is holy… God gave his first fruit, which was Jesus according to James 1: 18

Life Application [why--to obey God’s word, grow your faith which pleases God, receive your blessings for being obedient:
1.  Sow your first fruit today
2.  Now that you have heard the word plan to do it little by little before Resurrection Sunday

3.  Also sow love, kindness, trust in God

Just Do It! No Limits

Sermon Text: James 2: 18(b) …Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.
Sermon Title: Just Do It! Pt 2 2017 No Limits!
Point 1: Just Believe It James 1: 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
Romans 1: 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
Matthew 17: 20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Point 2: Just live it
Philippians 4:13 ESV I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
James 2:17 ESV So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:14 ESV What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?
James 1:22-25 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
Point 3: Just Give It
2 Corinthians 9:6-8 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Malachi 3:10 ESV Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Luke 6:38 ESV Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
