Rev. Michael Gentry

Morning Text Matthew 6:25-34

25 

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father

feedeth

them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 

Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 

And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Morning Text Matthew 6:25-34

30

 

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father

knoweth

that ye have need of all these things.

33 

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Approach, Frame of mind, Viewpoint,

Attley

my neighbors 2 and ½ year old daughter’s

day started off as normal as could be. The routine of personnel hygiene, getting dressed, and starting off the day by eating

breakfast was progressing normally.

When out of the blue, it was not planned this way but it seemed that it just happened. That morning while sitting at the breakfast table her norm was disrupted, causing her great consternation.

Attley

had hit the breaking point. How could such a mistake happen?

What could the

person serving breakfast that morning

have

been thinking. There is a routine that must NEVER be

broken for a 2 and ½ year old?

Her day was ruined and nothing, absolutely nothing could be done to reverse the horrid act which had just transpired. She reasoned, I deserve to be angry and pardon me if I make everyone’s life miserable.

Attley

caused everyone in her path to shrink back and avoid her if possible. Everyone would have to pay

. Nothing for the remainder of the day

would

be the same…

Slide5

And Why???

Because water

was poured into

her sippy cup instead of milk !!!!

Slide6

Have you ever had???

One of those days!!!

Nothing goes right

You seem to be out of sync.

What is your next step?

Or you thing I’ll just ride it out

I’ll apologize to everyone later

Finally out of desperation you exclaim Lord

Help Me!

Slide7

Two Approaches seen in Matthew 6:25-34

First point, there is the assumption along with evidence that for many there is concern, anxiety, trouble, worry about this present life. It is that anxious solicitude, that oppressive care, which originates from unbelief, doubts, lack of trust and misgivings, in which many live. Here in this section of scripture it is condemned by the Master. Second point to succeed in this area one must take hold of the admonition that is given and strive to live in this estate.There is a balancing act which must be understood.

Slide8

Philippians 4:6,7 Several translations holds the same thought.

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

American Standard Version

In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Douay-Rheims Bible

Be nothing solicitous; but in every thing, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God. 

Darby Bible Translation

Be careful about nothing; but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

English Revised Version

In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Webster's Bible Translation

Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Weymouth New Testament

Do not be over-anxious about anything, but by prayer and earnest pleading, together with thanksgiving, let your request be unreservedly made known in the presence of God.

Two Approaches seen in Matthew 6:25-34

First point the assumption is that there is concern, anxiety, trouble, worry about this present life. Second is the answer to win or succeed in this area. Take hold of the admonition from the Master.

rich and full

in detail! The

base of

creation--void of reason--are incapable of sowing, reaping, and storing: yet your heavenly Father suffers them not helplessly to perish, but sustains them without any of those processes.

Prayer for Victims and Family Insulted

When did it become so horrible and Godless that men would conclude that by praying for victims and family was thought of as useless and cynical!

the Bible: “three score years and ten” meaning: “seventy years old” (3*20+10)

Psalm 90

10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength

labour

Stature

"Which of you, however anxiously you vex yourselves about it, can add so much as a step to the length of your life's journey?" To compare the length of life to measures of this nature is not foreign to the language of Scripture So understood, the meaning is clear and the connection natural. In this the best critics now agree.

1, Anxiety, 2, concentration, 3, wishing, 4, what if, 5, if only, 6, just imagine, 7, a deep sigh, none of this will add any days to my journey. BUT my faith and trust in God for fruitful and a rewarding time before glory.

Music: I Trust in God

See next slide..

Slide23

Your

I trust in God wherever I may be,

Upon the land, or on the rolling sea,

For come what may, from day to day,

My

heav’nly

Father watches over me.

Refrain:

I trust in God, I know He cares for me;

On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;

Though billows roll, He keeps my soul;

My

heav’nly

Father watches over me.

He makes the rose an object of His care,

He guides the eagle through the pathless air,

And surely He remembers me;

My

heav’nly

Father watches over

me.

I

trust in God, for, in the lion’s den,

On battlefield, or in the prison pen,

Through praise or blame, through flood or flame,

My

heav’nly

Father watches over me

.

The valley may be dark, the shadows deep,

But, oh, the Shepherd guards His lonely sheep;

And through the gloom He’ll lead me home,

My

heav’nly

Father watches over me.

Matthew 6:33 Seek Ye First

Two things reign high in this verse.

#1. The

Kingdom of God

Of the kingdom--as the grand objects, in the supreme pursuit of which all things needful for the present life will be added to us. The precise sense of every word in this golden verse should be carefully weighed. "The kingdom of God" is the primary subject of the Sermon on the Mount--that kingdom which the God of heaven is erecting in this fallen world, within which are all the spiritually recovered and inwardly subject portion of the family of Adam, under Messiah as its Divine Head and King.

Slide25

Matthew 6:33 Seek Ye First

Two things reign high in this verse.

#2. His

Righteousness

"The righteousness thereof" is the character of all such, so amply described and variously illustrated in the foregoing portions of this discourse. The "seeking" of these is the making them the object of supreme choice and pursuit; and the seeking of them "first" is the seeking of them before and above all else.

Slide26

All these things

Look back at verse 32. for context of “all these things”

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father

knoweth

that ye have need of all these things

.

Philippians

4:19

19 

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Slide27

This concludes Matthew Chapter 6

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof--An admirable practical axiom, and better rendered in our English Version than in almost any other. Every day brings its own cares; and to anticipate is only to double them.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
