2 a sermon about nothing…???

3  Nothing Without Christ
John 15:5 “ 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” Acts 17:28 “ 28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.”

4  Nothing Without Christ
Acts 4:12 “ 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” John 6:67-68 “ 67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68Then Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.’”

5  Nothing Without Love 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“4Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

6  Nothing Without Love 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
“ 1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”

7  Nothing Without Fruit
Matthew 21:18-19 “ 18Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. 19And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, ‘Let no fruit grow on you ever again.’ Immediately the fig tree withered away.”

8 Nothing Without Fruit Matthew 7:19 Romans 7:4
“ 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” Romans 7:4 “ 4Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another — to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.”

9 Nothing Without Fruit Galatians 2:20 Galatians 5:22-25
“20I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 5:22-25 “22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffer-ing, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

10  Man Is Nothing Galatians 6:3
“ 3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

11  Man Is Nothing 1 Corinthians 15:10 Romans 12:3
“10But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” Romans 12:3 “3For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

12  Man Is Nothing Titus 2:11-14
“11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.”

13  I Know Nothing 1 Corinthians 4:4 Jeremiah 10:23 Proverbs 14:12
“ 4For I know nothing by myself… Jeremiah 10:23 “ 23O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.” Proverbs 14:12 “ 12There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”

14  I Know Nothing 1 Corinthians 2:1-15
“1And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

15  I Know Nothing 1 Corinthians 2:1-15
“6However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’”

16  I Know Nothing 1 Corinthians 2:1-15
“10But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

17  I Know Nothing 1 Corinthians 2:1-15
“13These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.”

18  I Know Nothing James 1:21 Luke 8:15 Acts 10:33
“ 21…receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” Luke 8:15 “ 15But the ones that fell on the ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.” Acts 10:33 “ 33So I sent to you immediately, and you have done well to come. Now therefore, we are all present before God, to hear all the things commanded you by God.”

19  Possessions Are Nothing
1 Timothy 6:7-8 “ 7For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” Job 1:21 “ 21Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return…” (cf. Psa. 49:16-17)

20  Possessions Are Nothing
Hebrews 4:13 “ 13And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Ecclesiastes 12:14 “ 14…God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Romans 2:16 “ 16…in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel”

21  Be Anxious For Nothing
Philippians 4:6-7 “ 6Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God; 7and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

22  Be Anxious For Nothing
Matthew 6:25-34 “25Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “

23  Be Anxious For Nothing
Matthew 6:25-34 “28So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”

24  Be Anxious For Nothing
Matthew 6:25-34 “31Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
