A Gradual Progression…

Sorry this has been a little delayed…but just another thought.

To piggy back off of my last post….love makes you do the strangest things.  It makes you get outside of your character & personality. 

In my devotional time earlier today I was thinking about this Scripture verse…

Psalm 1:1 – “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

It’s a progression towards apathy & civilized Christianity. 

1st WALKING… When you trip up, you can easily recover from it, just keep walking.  But when you’re walking on the wrong path, it’s going to have a progression…

2nd STANDING… This gets you to stop.  You’re walking, going fast, getting to where you need to go, then all the sudden you slip up.  So you’re at a ‘stand’ still.  Standing means you’re questioning what you’re doing.  You’re standing just like sinners.

3rd SITTING… This means you’re willing to do the wrong thing.  Then you sit scornfully rationalizing what you’re doing.  Scorn compares yourself to others.

  • EXAMPLE:  Jesus told Peter if he followed then he would die.  Peter then asked what would happen to John the beloved.
  • Jesus said, “What’s it to you?  I’m talking about you…not John.” 

“The greater the kingdom responsibility, the greater the sacrifice, craziness of faith & commitment.”

    No matter how deep in you get, it’s never too late to walk away.
