Today's Sermon:
"Fullness and its Fruit"

I. Disciples Persevere in.....- vs. 7-8
“The importance of this element of persistence cannot be exaggerated. You find it not only in biblical teaching, but also in the lives of all the saints. The most fatal thing in the Christian life is to be content with passing desires. If we really want to be men of God, if we really want to know Him, and walk with Him, and experience those boundless blessings which He has to offer us, we must persist in asking Him for them day by day. We have to feel this hunger and thirst after righteousness, and then we shall be filled. And that does not mean that we are filled once and for ever. We go on hungering and thirsting. Like the apostle Paul, leaving the things which are behind, we `press toward the mark'. `Not as though I had already attained', says Paul, `but I follow after'. That is it. This persistence, this constant desire, asking, seeking and knocking. This, we must agree, is the point at which most of us fail.”-David Martyn Lloyd-Jones
II. Disciples Persevere in .....- Vs. 9-11
“I’m wondering if you might be mistaking a heavenly desire for an earthly one. I’m wondering if the restlessness you might be feeling somewhere in your life—your marriage, maybe, or your work, or your church, in anything you once found beautiful but which has since grown dull—is really your inbuilt yearning for heaven. It’s your homing device triggering. You fantasize that moving on, finding some beautiful new thing to console you or amuse you, might remedy your ache. Well it just might, for a spell. But it will age you faster, and leave you aching more and with a sour taste in your mouth. Eternity is in your heart.” -Mark Buchanan
III. Disciples, Rich in Christ, Give as .... - Vs. 12
