02.07.22 TAKE CARE HOW YOU HEAR, sermon at Trinity Baptist Church

TRINITY BAPTIST CHURCH sermon February 6, 2022

SERMON TITLE: TAKE CARE HOW YOU HEAR

Click below to watch the Worship Service.  I am not going to share where the sermon begins this week because the two beautiful believers baptisms, and our children’s choir singing will bless you so much and I don’t want you to miss that! An amazing couple who have become my friends and that I admire so much join our church church near the end. Oh and Bro. Avery’s sermon was so strong as always!

 
 

16 “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. 17 For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. 18 Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.”

19 Then his mother and his brothers[a] came to him, but they could not reach him because of the crowd. 20 And he was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see you.” 21 But he answered them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”

1) The Word of God is Meant to be Seen and Shared by Hearers
*”No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light”
-Have you made sure you shine His light? Will people wonder? Do you wonder?
-When confronted with Jesus, He shines on, in, and through us
-Hearing is Seeing, Seeing is Shining, Shining is telling and acting
 
 
2) The Word of God Reveals the Heart of the Hearer
*”For nothing is hidden that will not be made to manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light”
-It is easy to seem like we respond well… We can fake our faith
-Remember on that day Judas is still among the disciples
-But Jesus knows the hearts or all… So he says that all will be exposed and brought to light
-How we have responded inwardly will be known
 
 
3) The Word of God is Open to Those Who Hear
*”Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even when he thinks that he has will be taken away”
-This is an important statement from Jesus… “He who has an ear let him hear”
-He has warned that some will have ears but be unable to hear
-Take care means to be vigilant
-This is the same word. He said there are those who see but don’t see… so for you… take care to see. Then he says “how you hear”
-And this word hear means to hear with intention and with understanding
 
 
4) The Word of God Should be Obeyed by Hearers
*”Then his mother and his brothers came to him, but they could not reach him because of the crowd. And he was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see you.” But he answered them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”
-Jesus says… My brothers and my mother are those who hear the word of God and then do it…
-The proper response to the Woods of God are action
-God says repent, we repent. He says believe, we believe. He says give, we give.
-He says study, we study. He says go, we go. He says love, and we love
-He says live pure and righteous, and we live pure righteous
-Some of us need to look in the mirror a little longer… What are we ignoring
