Sunday Sermon Outline: Luke 12:22-34

"How to survive the world"
Luke 12:22-34

Introduction: Romans 8:24; 15:4

I.  Curb your concerns. vs. 22-30
     “And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. [23] For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. [24] Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!””
     “[25] And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life's span? [26] If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? [27] Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. [28] But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!”
     "[29] And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. [30] For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things."

II. Concentrate on the kingdom. vs. 31-34
     "[31] But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. [32] Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. [33] Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. [34] For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Conclusion: Hebrews 6:19

“How Soon We Forget”
Luke 12:13-21

Introduction: Proverbs 23:7

I.  While thinking of the gifts, he forgot the Giver. vs. 16-18
     “And He told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man was very productive. [17] “And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ [18] “Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.'” 

James 1:17

II. While thinking of himself, he forgot his neighbor. v. 19
     “‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.’””

Matthew 10:8

III. While thinking about his body, he forgot about his soul. vs. 20-21
     “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ [21] So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

Sunday Sermon Outline: Ownership and Inheritance

Ownership and Inheritance

I.   The Ownership of the Father
      Psalms 50:10-12, “For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills. 11 “I know every bird of the mountains, And everything that moves in the field is Mine. 12 “If I were hungry I would not tell you, For the world is Mine, and all it contains."
     Ezekiel 18:4, “Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine." 

 II. The Inheritance and Ownership of the Son
     Luke 15:31, “Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours."
     Philippians 2:5-11, “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, [6] who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, [7] but *emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. [8] Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. [9] For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, [10] so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, [11] and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

III. The Inheritance of the Adopted Children
     John 16:14-15, “He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15 “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you."
     Luke 12:31-32, “But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. 32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom." 

Acts 20:32; Ephesians 4:11-12; Matthew 25:31-34
