Weekly Message: To Cut OFF

TOPIC : To Cut Off

VERSES: Matthew 5:30, 2 Thess 3:6, 1 Samuel 2:9, Zechariah 4:6, Daniel 1:8, Philippians 3:13, Lake 18:8, 2 Corinthians 13:5, Romans 6:11-12

 Life is an endless process, we grow and live everyday. Learning, meeting new and discarding old thoughts and things but why then is it so hard to sever ties with people we know to be bad for us. It’s inborn, the need to hold on. Babies have deathlike grips especially with people they instinctively like. We read in the Bible again and again, if your had will cause you to sin it is better to cut it off than the whole body be condemned.
Matthew 5:30;

hebrews-4-16-kjv

This verse applies very strongly to friendships that will cause you harm but you still allow out of an innate fear of the unknown. It’s no easy feat to say No or to walk away or cut all ties to a friend of so many years despite the troubles. Here is where the overflowing grace becomes our strength, all we need is to go to The Lord in prayer;

Hebrews 4:16;
hebrews-4-16-kjv
Asking for the strength to do what needs to be done, sometimes slowly or in some cases drastically. As we seek his face for strength he will surely supply beyond our need.
AMEN.
