Here is the sermon outline I used to close out the Bible Conference in Naples, Idaho last Lord's Day.

Planted in the House of the LORD
Psalm 92:13-15. Pray.

True worship of the God of the Bible is done in a validated house of worship. This is a truth we as Old Landmarkers believe and hold dearly. We have been planted in the House of God by His sovereign grace. God has brought most of us through years of service. We have been through trials and we have seen amazing answers to prayer. Let us seek divine guidance as we press on in Faith and Holiness. It is good to remember victories of the past. However, what will we do for the cause of God and truth in the future? The House of God in the New Testament is the Church that Jesus built. We are already doing many things in our local congregations that we must do and continue to do. We pray, we preach, we study, read and teach the canon of God’s inspired word. We sing and give of our tithes and offerings. However, we must look for more opportunities to do the work of evangelism. We should desire to see every aspect of the great commission fulfilled in our assembly. Looking at our text, let us ponder what it means to be planted in the House of the Lord. Notice four things.

1. In the courts of God. Not in the courts of civil law, worldly business or politics but in the courts of our God. Prayer. Matt.21:22. God’s word. 1Pet.2:2. Righteous Judgment. 2Thess.1:5-6. Divine Love. 1Thess.3:12-13.
2. He is OUR God. Those planted in the House of God have a personal relationship with God. Gal.2:20. 2Tim.1:12.

1. STILL, no matter what, we bear good fruit. Those planted in the House of God have, are and shall continue to bear fruit. Matt.7:17-20.
2. Even in old age. Ps.71:7-9. Isa.46:3-4.

WE WILL BE FAT. Ps.92:14.
1. Fat is not a bad connotation here. It is not obesity or even a fat wallet. People seldom find a blubber gut attractive and often flock to big spending sugar daddies but this verse speaks of spiritual things. Matt.19:21.
2. Fat is a good spiritual offering for God. It is spiritual wealth. Matt.6:19-21.

1. Our God and Savior is impeccable. Heb.4:14-15. 9:28. 2Cor.5:21.
2. He is the Rock of the Bible. Dt.32:4. v.31. 1Sam.2:2. 22:2. v.47. 1Cor.10:4.

Conclusion: When one is planted in the House of the LORD, that means they are there to stay. They will grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord. They will bear fruit as a Christian. They will remain faithful consistently standing for truth and righteousness. Church membership does not save but it is the right thing to do after salvation. God is the one that adds the saved to the church. Salvation is always and only by the sovereign grace of God. True service is also this way after salvation. If you know in your heart that God has saved you by His grace, our prayer for you now is, that He would enable you to surrender to His will in biblical service. AMEN.
