Sermon ❯

Pastor Ron Sunday Service January 7

Primary Text: Ecc. 11:1-6


Do you ever wonder if anything you do for God really matters? You pray for a friend, but does your prayer ever get answered? You give money to help the poor, but does it really help them? You give money to the church, but does it change lives? You share the gospel, but does anyone get saved? Sometimes you wonder if what you do for God and his kingdom really matters. But then there are times when you catch a glimpse of what God is doing, when you see that something you did for Jesus really did make a difference in someone’s life.

The Benefits of sowing spiritually!

1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. You will eventually find the harvest. It will come.

Therefore, in all you do, work faithfully and patiently for as you sow to the spirit, you will reap a harvest of benefits!!!

But before I get into too much of the benefits…

Let me give you a few things about this CALL to CAST your bread upon the waters.

1. First of all, the call to sow is a call to a special kind of work, not really that all popular, but so essential for every Christian.

It is the call to Unappreciated Work:

2nd: It is a call to an Unobtrusive Work:

Bread sown on the waters suggest silent forms of service, that which is not in the limelight….that which is not out front in the spotlights of society.

3rd: It is a call to Unpromising Work:

To sow bread upon the waters sometimes looks hopeless

Little good seems likely to come of such toil and sacrifice.

It is a call that is many times “unpromising”

What is then the greatest benefit of casting our bread upon the waters? It is the privilege of leading someone to Jesus Christ that they may make heaven!
