The Perfect Master

Looking the Part Isn’t Enough

Tonight: Get the Job Done

The Lord demands absolute honesty…not perfection!

HEB 12:11

All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

Divine discipline is just as perfect as divine grace, mercy, and love.

2PE 1:10

Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;

MAT 25:10

“…and the door was shut.”

Preparation is a direct result of attitude.

Looking the part isn’t enough.

1CO 3:18

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise.

Mark 7:6

And He said to them, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME.

Point 1

God loves His creatures, but isn’t interested in them living outside of the spirtual life (eusebeia)

Point 2

Salvation can and will be a missed opportunity if you believe on TLJC’s name but not His Person.

Point 3

Give up on trying to “act” your way into God’s graces…He’s omniscient!…looking the part isn’t enough.

If ultimately God wants us to come to know Him through His Word, then many times, we need to discover His person through His interactions with others.

Sanhedrin

MAT 23:27

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

The religious person has no concept of the doctrine of total depravity; they just believe depravity relates to those in the gutter.

If God’s plan was to cure all humans, then why did He create us flawed?

Principle

God uses whatever means necessary to string together situations in our lives to prove His character and nature.

Sometimes, we have to put ourselves in awkward, seemingly compromising positions in order to navigate the obstacle course called “someone else’s negativity!”

MAT 13:57

And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.”

1TI 2:4

who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
