Text: Matt 25:14-30   (King James Version) 

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                                       The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

 As a people, We have heard more messages than any other generation in time past. We have judged the message as if it were for someone else and not applicable to us and became hearers only and never doers and therewith deceiving our own selves.

 

Matthew 25:14   For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

Matthew 25:15   And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

Matthew 25:16   Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

Matthew 25:17   And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

Matthew 25:18   But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

Matthew 25:19   After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

Matthew 25:20   And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

Matthew 25:21   His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 25:22   He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

Matthew 25:23   His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 25:24   Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strowed:

Matthew 25:25   And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

Matthew 25:26   His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strowed:

Matthew 25:27   Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

Matthew 25:28   Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

Matthew 25:29   For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

Matthew 25:30   And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

Let's pray. Father,  Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

Ephesians 4:8   Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led

captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

 

Ephesians 4:11   And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

Ephesians 4:12   For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

 

John 4:34   Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

John 4:35   Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

John 4:36   And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

John 4:37   And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

 

John 4:38   I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

John 4:39   And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.


                 
You must Die to Self "Crucified with Christ"


John 12:24   Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

John 12:25   He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

John 12:26   If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

                     
The Mission is outside these four walls!


Matthew 22:8   Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

Matthew 22:9   Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

Matthew 22:10   So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

Matthew 22:11   And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

Matthew 22:12   And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

Matthew 22:13   Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 22:14   For many are called, but few are chosen.

 

Mark 16:14   Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

Mark 16:15   And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:16   He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:17   And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18   They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mark 16:19   So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mark 16:20   And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

James 2:14   What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

James 2:15   If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

James 2:16   And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled;  notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

James 2:17   Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

James 2:18   Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works.

James 2:19   Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

James 2:20   But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

James 2:21   Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

James 2:22   Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

 

Romans 10:17   So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

James 1:22   But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

James 1:23   For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

James 1:24   For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was

 

Acts 2:1   And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

Acts 2:2   And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

Acts 2:3   And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

Acts 2:4   And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

 

Acts 2:16   But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

Acts 2:17   And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Acts 2:18   And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

 

2 Timothy 3:1   This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 Timothy 3:2   For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2 Timothy 3:3   Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2 Timothy 3:4   Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2 Timothy 3:5   Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2 Timothy 3:6   For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

2 Timothy 3:7   Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge
