3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermons

Summary: Many of us settle for far less than God wants us to have.

Why would we settle for just crumbs?

Matthew 15:

26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Too many of us as church members settle for just crumbs.

Spiritual crumbs when awe could have a big steak dinner.

1. We all know crumbs are not as desirable.

Many of us will not eat left overs.

How many of you eat at a place to eat and ask crumbs?

Proverbs 8: 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

Malachi 3: 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

2. Why do we settle for less.

Matthew 6: 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Remember these blessings come from above.

When we do God’s will and way that brings blessings not mans way.

Isaiah 58: 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

3. The pastor and church members are to teach Gods way.

Put God first in our lives.

Matthew 6: 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

Proverbs 16: 3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

John 3: 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

4. Go for the best not the crumbs.

1st Samuel 2: 30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

Psalms 18: 21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

Psalms 119: 5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
