St. Mark 9:43-47

Introduction

I often wonder why it is that people now are so different from the way that they used to be back in the day. I remember a time when the saints began lining up at the doors of the church an hour before the doors even opened. But now it seems that it's hard to get people not to be more than 30 mins. late for the service. And I know that they were simpler times, when people didn't have as much, didn't make much money, didn't have a whole lot to brag about, but they had Jesus and they were glad about it. It almost makes you ask the question, " Is it possible to be too blessed?" Kinda seems that when people didn't have as much they were more grateful. But there has to be something that pulls us back to a serious and intense realization of what salvation is all about.

We Can Go As High As We Want To Go

The truth is that as children of God, we can go as high as we want to go.

  • It's not up to anyone else.
    1. nobody can make you come to church
    2. nobody can make you read your Bible
    3. nobody can make you pray
    4. nobody can make you serious about your salvation
    5. nobody can sanctify you, the Bible says that you should " Sanctify yourself"

God Laid It Out For You

He put it all out there for us to seize it. It is all up to you.

  • Discipline Yourself
    1. when we were coming to church back then, we were serious.
    2. we sat down front
    3. we went out to eat and talked about the goodness of the Lord.
    4. we held each other accountable on fast days.
  • Romans 6:12 says Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body.
  • 1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful.....
