Showing Revision 3 created 03/13/2018 by Carrie Spradlin.

  1. We're not to be passive.
  2. Jesus says you are to cut your hand off.
  3. Listen, it is by the Spirit that we
  4. put to death the deeds of the body.
  5. But you're not to be passive.
  6. Jesus is saying you've got to do it.
  7. He's not saying God will do it for you.
  8. He's not saying expect the
    church to do it for you.
  9. You know what?
  10. We have had people leave this church
  11. who have gone out
  12. either through discipline
  13. or they've just packed up and left
  14. and walked away immersed in sin
  15. who have blamed the elders.
  16. I have not been given the knife
  17. to cut your hand off.
  18. Yes, there's a place for teaching.
  19. There's a place for counsel.
  20. You have that responsibility.
  21. If you don't take your hand off,
  22. it is not my fault.
  23. It is not James' fault.
  24. And it is not somebody else's fault
  25. down the aisle from you.
  26. You have a responsibility to amputate.
  27. And if you don't, you go to hell.
  28. That's what it says.
  29. We have a personal responsibility here
  30. not to be passive.
  31. You must be proactive.
  32. You must be intentional.
  33. You must face your life with purpose.
  34. You must attack with purpose.
  35. You must be deliberate.
  36. You must identify the
    causes of sin in your life,
  37. and cut them off
  38. and throw them away from you.
  39. And God doesn't make deals.
  40. I want to tell you this too.
  41. God doesn't tell you that it's okay
  42. to pluck out your right eye
  43. when it's your right hand that offends.
  44. You get what I'm saying here?
  45. Have you ever noticed,
  46. sometimes we have a tendency to do that?
  47. We feel like in our conscience,
  48. God is telling me that
    this thing over here
  49. is what really needs to be cut off.
  50. And we start cutting off over here.
  51. You know what we're wanting to do?
  52. Well, Lord, will this appease You?
  53. He knows where our real idols are.
  54. He knows the things that have roots
  55. that go down deepest into our heart,
  56. and He'll push that aside and say,
  57. "I want that thing right there."
