Preached by Mike Burnette
Notes by Tammy Phillips

Mike Burnette, Lead Pastor of LifePoint Church, our pastor who we love, was on fire when he delivered this message.  The message was so good and simple. I wanted to pass it on and encourage you to listen.  View full sermon at:  https://lifepointchurch.tv/sermon_archive/jesus-speaks-parable-of-the-hidden-treasure/  Here are my notes:

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: – Matthew 13:24 KJV”

Jesus came preaching the kingdom of heaven.

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. – Matthew 4:17 KJV”

The kingdom of heaven is simply defined:

CHRIST IS KING and you are not.   CHRIST reigns and you do not.

And then he posed these questions…

IS CHRIST KING of your…

The Kingdom of Heaven is our greatest treasure.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. – Matthew 6:21 KJV

In kingdom of heaven is eternal life, salvation, forgiveness, freedom, healing, transformation,  prosperity and safety

The Kingdom of God is worth our sell out!

Every kingdom will fall. Your kingdom will fall. Religion will fall.  The Roman empire fell. The Ottoman empire fell. The United States will fall one day.  Every kingdom one day will bow their knee to Christ the King.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9-11 KJV

However, in the kingdom of God, we are not slaves when we submit.  We are sons, daughters, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ the King.  If that isn’t good news, I don’t know what is?  We rule and reign in life in Jesus.  Whooo hoo!

What kingdom have we sold out to?

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. – Matthew 6:24 KJV

 Choose which king you shall serve.  He wants every area of your life.

REPENT, change your mind and turn to God.
SUBMIT, surrender all, everything, every day, all to King Jesus.
COMMIT, your life to Jesus and serving in His kingdom.

He wants every area of our life because He is good and he wants good for our life.

HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
He is righteous, just, wonderful, amazing, forgiving, and loving.
HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
He is healer, perfect, glorious, merciful, kind, and compassionate.
HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
He is faithful, truth, patient, long suffering, and gracious.
HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.  HE IS KING JESUS.

I enCOURAGE you to let Christ be King in every area of your life.  Repent. Submit. Commit it all to Him.
