Dr. Jimmy Scroggins’ message at the FBC Jacksonville Downtown Campus on January 14, 2018, 10:30 AM.
This is a tremendous sermon by a preacher who grew up at FBC and now pastors an 11 campus church in Palm Beach county. Dr. Scroggins refers in the sermon to 3 success secrets-1st- start were you are, 2nd- use what you have, 3rd- do what you can. Dr. Scroggins added a 4th- Jesus is the multiplier.
I have been meditating on the 4th secret “Jesus is the multiplier”. Dr. Scroggins said Jesus was a multiplier when He fed the 5,000 men and maybe 20,000 total with 5 loaves and 2 fish. I thought of His promises to His disciples today as we go discipling; “Lo I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” [Matthew 28:18-20]; ” 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,…8 My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit…9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. 11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” [John 15:7-11]; “so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;” [Colossians 1:10] and “His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” [2 Peter 1:3 HCSB] Yes, Jesus is the multiplier.
He credited tennis great Arthur Ashe with the 3 success secrets. I have used these three for many years as “The Three Success Secrets of Shamgar” from a book by Jay Strack, click here.
Dr. Scroggins refers to George and Jack in the sermon. “George” is George Nail, his father-in-law who was in the service Sunday and “Jack” is Jack Leuders. I knew George, Jack and Dr. Scroggins father, the head football coach at Terry Parker High School in the 1980’s. Dr. Scroggins was in my son David’s Singles SS class in the 90’s.
