The Blessing Week 2 | Pastor Micah Pelkey
20 In the past you were slaves to sin, and you did not even think about doing right.
21 You did evil things, and now you are ashamed of what you did. Did those things help you? No, they only brought death.
22 But now you are free from sin. You have become slaves of God, and the result is that you live only for God. This will bring you eternal life.
23 When people sin, they earn what sin pays—death. But God gives his people a free gift—eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The righteous and wicked contrasted.
1 Blessed is the man that does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law he meditates day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
“Love means to honor and celebrate another’s choices. Love should make you feel good.”
There are byproducts to our beliefs.
Where am I positioned?
Am I planted?
Am I getting enough water?
What is my life producing?
The Way Of The Righteous
The Way Of The Ungodly
13 Go in through the narrow door. The door is wide and the road is easy that leads to hell. Many people are going through that door.
14 But the door is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life that lasts forever. Few people are finding it.
