If you savor the things of this world you’re never going to walk with God. Are you willing to be the cover for another brother’s sin or are you going to point your finger at him? Finger pointing is much more comfortable than loving him, finding fault doesn’t somehow justify you.

Service Notes For Sunday South Carolina 2020-05-24
- Steven Atherton
- Ephesians 4:11-16, Mark 8:27- 38, John 10:6-15
- In order for something to be pure and perfect you have to get rid of every objective and just observe. You can’t make Christ after your image.
- By nature you are not perfect, you are awful – only evil continually. You are selfish by nature. Jesus Christ didn’t come to save your flesh, why then do you continually try to save it?
- When the government train people to recognize counterfeit currency, they never show them counterfeits, only the real thing. If you know the real thing you will always recognize the counterfeit. The truth needs to be more important than anything even when it testifies against you.
- The love of God is as much alien to man as if martians dropped down onto earth. Your nature is to like receiving love but not giving love.
- If you savor the things of this world you’re never going to walk with God.
- You haven’t gone on to perfection because you don’t know what that looks like or feels like. You’ve judged everything by your flesh for your whole life. When you savor the things of God you will partake of the abundance of God but you will suffer in the flesh.
- You have to embrace the truth and be willing to die to this life. This flesh is contrary to God in every way, deny it and follow after Him.
- There is an adulteress and sinful generation inside the church. Many people will see the truth if you will embrace Christ.
- Are you willing to be the cover for another brother’s sin or are you going to point your finger at him? Finger pointing is much more comfortable than loving him, finding fault doesn’t somehow justify you.
- You can be thankful when you’re not after all these things of the world. When you’re about the things of the world there’s just never enough, it’s a bottomless pit that can never be satisfied.
- When you’re in Christ you will suffer in the flesh you won’t care about those things because you care more about Christ. Those sufferings in the flesh really don’t matter.
