"GRACE AND HOLINESS - PART SIX"
BY Rev. John S. Torell
Every Time you make a decision, you will trade one thing for something else. GOD SAID: "I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING; THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE THAT BOTH YOU AND YOUR SEED MAY LIVE ." Deuteronomy 10:19b
Remember this: A wrong decision shall always bring a cursed response. Galations 6:7-9
When a wrong decision has been made, it means that someone else will have to pay the price to help the person out who made the wrong decision. Acts 9:1-18
When there is a fight in a family -- it will cost the pastor, his wife and church members time and effort while they are grieving over the fallen people.
When a person chooses to drink alcohol or take drugs, then drives a car, someone might have to pay with their life.
When a prson commits suicide, others must take care of the dead body, clean up the mess, pay the bills that were unpaid and take care of any surviving children.
Suicide is the height of SELFISHNESS! Matthew 27:1-10
OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS! John 15:1-7
Let us continue to study what the Bible teaches concerning holiness:
WHICH ONE OF THESE SPIRITUAL LAWS ARE YOU HONORING IN YOUR LIFE? WHICH ONE ARE YOU DESPISING? YOU CANNOT OBEY AND DISOBEY AT THE SAME TIME! Revelation 3:14-22
Do you have an ear with which to hear?
