In reality there are two ways to live
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.Mt. 7:13-14
Transgressor = This refers to the sinner who sins against God by violating God’s willThe way of the transgressor
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.1 Jn. 3:4
“Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.”
“As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.” (ESV)Rom. 14:1(Weakness)
Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.1Tim. 1:13 (Ignorance)
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sinsHeb. 10:26 (Out right rebellion)
For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins (ESV)
REMEMBER – No time is a good time when it is not good in the sight of God!
Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;Heb. 11:25 (Sin has its rewards)
The pleasure of sin is what makes it attractive – but the reward of sin that appeals to us is only temporary
The pleasure of sin is fleeting and deceptive
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Rom. 6:23 (The final wages of sin)
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh…Gal. 6:7-8
shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Sometimes we suffer because of the sins of others – not the guilt of their sins, but the consequences
In this lesson we are looking at the hardships that we bring upon ourselves because of sin– that others suffer because of their sins
Consider the following examples:
How about the: liar, cheat, immoral, thief, etc.
They reap what they sow
What matters in this world and the world to come is WHY WE SUFFER!
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy1 Pet. 4:12-16
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer…
or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
