TAKE THE LIMITS OFF

INTRO: THE MUSTARD SEED.

1: THE LEAST OF ALL SEEDS

A) THE SIZE OF THE SEED

B) THE TINY SMALL SEED

C) ALSO THE GREATEST OF HERBS

D) GROWS INTO A TREE

E) GIVES LODGING AND REST TO THE BIRDS

POINT: TO SEE A MUSTARD SEED YOU WOULD NEVER THINK IT COULD GROW INTO A TREE. TO THINK OF FAITH IN CHRIST ON THE SCALE OF A MUSTARD SEED TENDS TO MAKE US FEEL LIKE IT COULDN’T GET VERY BIG IF IT STARTS SO SMALL.

2: WHY DO WE PUT LIMITS ON GOD?

A) TEND TO THINK GOD IS ONLY AS BIG AS OUR CURRENT CRISIS OR PROBLEM

B) USUALLY THOSE ARE THE ONLY TIMES WE SEEK HIM

C) ONLY PAY ATTENTION TO HIM WHEN IT’S CONVEINT FOR US

POINT: GOD HAS NO LIMITS AND NO RANGE ON WHAT HE CAN DO. HE’S GOD HE CAN DO ANYTHING. THE ONLY THINGS GOD CAN’T DO ARE THINGS WE WISH WE COULDN’T DO. DIE, LIE, SIN, GO AGAINST WHAT WE SAY.

BODY: MATT 13:31-32

1: THE MUSTARD SEED

A) JESUS SAYS IT IS THE LEAST OF ALL THE SEEDS

B) THE SEED ITSELF IS VERY SMALL

C) ONE WOULD NOT EXPECT MUCH YIELD FROM SUCH A SMALL SEED

D) JUST TO LOOK AT IT WOULD MAKE YOU SEEM TO BELIEVE YOU UNDERSTOOD IT’S LIMITS

POINT: SUCH A SMALL SEED WOULD HAVE TO PRODUCE A SMALL PLANT, SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T PROUCE MUCH AND PROBABLY FRAGILE AS WELL.

2: THE FACTS

A) THE MUSTARD SEED JESUS REFERS TOO IS A BLACK MUSTARD SEED

B) THIS PARTICULAR SEED IS KNOW TO GROW UP TO TWELVE FEET IN HEIGHT IN THE AREA WHERE JESUS LIVED AND WALKED

C) THIS LITTLE SEED BECOMES SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER THAN WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE

POINT: JESUS SAID IT IS THE GREATEST AMONG HERBS, IT GROWS TO BECOME A TREE AND PROVIDES REST AND LODGING FOR THE BIRDS OF THE AIR. TO SEE IT AT THE BEGINNING IT WOULD NOT SEEM POSSIBLE TO BE CAPABLE OF SUCH GROWTH. WHEN GOD IS IN SOMETHING MAN CANNNOT BEGIN TO CALCULATE THE POTENTIAL NOR THE POSSIBLITY FOR GROWTH AND MATURITY.

3: WHY DO I HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM GETTING THERE?

A) I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE SAYING BUT I MYSELF HAVE NEVER EXPERIENECED IT PERSONALLY

B) HOW DO I GET THERE

C) THE SEED IS SMALL

D) THINGS HAVE TO START ON A SLOW SMALL INTIMATE SET

E) ONE DAY AT A TIME

POINT: FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, FAITH BELIEVES WITHOUT ALWAYS SEEING. TRUSTING GOD MORE EVERYDAY IS A LIFELONG PROCESS. THE MUSTARD SEED IS A GOOD ILLUSTRATION OF HOW TO START AND THE REWARD OF CONTINUING TO GROW IN GODLINESS.

CLOSING: TIME TO START MOVING THOSE MOUNTAINS!!

1: JUST A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY

A) JUST A LITTLE INTREST IN GOD CAN GROW INTO A LOVING REALTIONSHIP

B) JUST A LITTLE FAITH CAN HELP HEAL THAT DEEP WOUND

C) JUST A LITTLE TRUST IN SOMETHING BIGGER THAN YOU CAN OPEN DOORS THAT WERE CLOSED BEFORE.

D) YOU DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO CLIMB OVER THE MOUNTAIN IN YOUR LIFE

POINT: JESUS SAID THE MOUNTAIN WOULD BE MOVED FOR YOU. NOTHING WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU. TRUSTING IN GOD AND HAVING A REALATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST WILL CAUSE YOU TO SEEK THE WILL OF THE LORD FOR YOUR LIFE. WHEN YOU SEEK TO SERVE HIM, HE MAKES A WAY FOR YOU TO DO SO!!!!!!!

CONCLUSION: A SMALL STEP TOWARD JESUS CHRIST CAN BRING ABOUT GREAT RELEIF AND HAPPINESS IN ONES LIFE. ONE STEP OF FAITH, A SMALL STEP THINK OF HOW MANY YOU MAKE EVERYDAY JUST ONE TOWARD HIM AND HIS MERCY WILL OPEN UP A NEW LIFE OF HOPE AND PROMISE FOR ANYONE WHO CHOOSES TO DO SO. FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, TAKE THE LIMITS OFF YOUR LIFE TODAY.
