Isaiah 66:1-4

There are many traits that the world desires to see in a man – faithfulness, integrity, honesty, maturity – all good qualities, indeed commendable ones.  Yet as one peruses the list of desirables, one looks in vain to find the one that God seeks for in a man, namely that of humility!!  The world scoffs at such as weakness and a sure sign of femininity, the very opposite of masculinity which demands that a man – if he is a true man – excel in in the qualities of self-confidence, strength and security.

The word of God is clear, “God resisteth the proud but giveth grace to the humble” (Jms. 4:6).  “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Ps. 51:17).  This sermon is strong call for the Body of Christ to seek to walk in humility.  Mechanical religion consisting in outward prayers and professions of faith, will never procure the favour of God if the heart is not set before Him humility.  God calls His people to humble themselves and to put away sin.  “…to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word” (Is. 66:2).

2 Kings 6:24-33

How oft we are to lose sight of the One who sits on the throne of the universe!  “Who is this King of glory?  The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle…who is this King of glory?  The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory” (Ps. 24:8, 10).  How easy it is, when the storms of life come rolling in, eclipsing His face from view and the clouds of trial drift in, veiling His mighty arm – how easy it is to lose sight of His majesty, of His omnipotence, of His unrivalled and unequalled power!!

At the heart of this sermon goes forth cry, do not despair…never say never!!  Circumstances may look grim and desperate, but in a moment of time, in the most unexpected manner, at the least expected time, the wind can turn at the command of Him who sits on the circle of the earth!!  Never say never!!

Matthew 6:19-34

When demanded of the Pharisees, “when the kingdom of God should come”, Jesus responded by saying: “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For behold, the kingdom is within you” (Lk. 17:20-21).  If indeed it be the case that the King of kings has come to establish His kingdom in the hearts of men and to take His seat upon the throne of our lives, what ought to be the response of the Christian?  Well the words of our Lord come to mind:  “Not my will, but thine be done”.  Could it be that the root of the cause of so little growth in the lives of professing believers is that this very issue of the kingdom of God has not even been considered let alone embraced?

As a new year has dawned, this sermon is an exhortation and call for Christians to set in order, first things first for 2017.  A divided heart given over to the riches and cares of this world, will always and forever be a stumbling block to the growth and expansion of the kingdom of God in the life of a Christian.  At all costs a way must be cleared for the King to rule and reign!!
