Sermon Notes

Ezekiel 47:1-12 (The Message translation of the Bible)

1-2 Now he brought me back to the entrance to the Temple. I saw water pouring out from under the Temple porch to the east (the Temple faced east). The water poured from the south side of the Temple, south of the altar. He then took me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the gate complex on the east. The water was gushing from under the south front of the Temple. 3-5 He walked to the east with a measuring tape and measured off fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water that was ankle-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water that was knee-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water waist-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet. By now it was a river over my head, water to swim in, water no one could possibly walk through. 6-7 He said, “Son of man, have you had a good look?” Then he took me back to the riverbank. While sitting on the bank, I noticed a lot of trees on both sides of the river. 8-10 He told me, “This water flows east, descends to the Arabah and then into the sea, the sea of stagnant waters. When it empties into those waters, the sea will become fresh. Wherever the river flows, life will flourish—great schools of fish—because the river is turning the salt sea into fresh water. Where the river flows, life abounds. Fishermen will stand shoulder to shoulder along the shore from En-gedi all the way north to En-eglaim, casting their nets. The sea will teem with fish of all kinds, like the fish of the Great Mediterranean. 11 “The swamps and marshes won’t become fresh. They’ll stay salty. 12 “But the river itself, on both banks, will grow fruit trees of all kinds. Their leaves won’t wither, the fruit won’t fail. Every month they’ll bear fresh fruit because the river from the Sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.”


Ezekiel 47:9b (CSB) 

...there will be life everywhere the river goes.


John 7:37-38 (CSB) 

37 On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”


BiG Idea: If you’re in the River, you’re going to be ______________


John 15:5 (CSB) 

5 I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me. 


Lives _________________________ by the River bear fruit - Scott Reynolds, NRC Founding Pastor


Matthew 7:18 & 20 (CSB) 

18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit. 20 So you’ll recognize them by their fruit. 


Romans 12:1-2 (NASB 1977) 

1I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Ezekiel 47:12

All kinds of trees providing food will grow along both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. Each month they will bear fresh fruit because the water comes from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be used for food and their leaves for medicine.”

THIS IS AMAZING GRACE

Verse 1

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness

Whose love is mighty and so much stronger

The King of Glory the King above all kings


Verse 2

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder

And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder

The King of Glory the King above all kings


Chorus

(Yeah) (Oh) 

This is amazing grace

This is unfailing love

That You would take my place

That You would bear my cross

You laid down Your life

That I would be set free

Oh Jesus I sing for all that You’ve done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order

Who makes the orphan a son and daughter

The King of Glory the King above all kings

Who rules the nations with truth and justice

Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance

The King of Glory the King above all kings
