Sermon Series: Stop Going to Church
STOP GOING TO CHURCH
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; 13 planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, 15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock …” ⇝ Psalm 92:12-15 NIV
YOUR LIFE IS A SEED
• A seed can only grow if it’s planted.
• “Going to church” isn’t the same as being planted.
WHEN YOU ARE PLANTED
1. Your roots grow deep.
“They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. …” ⇝ Jeremiah 17:8
2. Your roots produce fruit.
“… with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” ⇝ Jeremiah 17:8
WHAT DOES A SEED NEED TO GROW AND FLOURISH?
TALK IT OVER
In your own words, describe what you think it might look like to be planted in our church.
Could you become more rooted and planted in our church? What might be in your way?
Pastor James said the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, and the second best is today. How will you become more planted today?
This Mother’s Day, you can give the gift of feeding hungry children. For a donation of just 20 dollars, you will receive an attractive bookmark stating that you purchased 100 kid’s meals in their honor.
Meals Of Hope is the largest food pantry in SWFL. Representatives from Meals Of Hope will be at the Easter Service collecting donations for the Mother’s Day bookmark.
