LIVING BY THE WORD (Part 3) -Digging Deep
Matthew 4:1-4, Deut.8:3
We give God praise for all we have learnt in this topic. We hope God has really blessed you. By God’s grace, we want to look at the end- result of not living by the word of God. We want to look at some things that will happen when a man does not conform to this word.
Anyone who refuses to live by the word faces the danger of being rejected by God now and hereafter. Just as we see some earthly fathers rejecting and disowning their children, the word of God also says God will reject all those who will not live by His word.
Hos.4:6, 1Sam 3:1-22, 1Sam. 15:22-23, 1Sam. 16:1, 2 Kings 17:19-21
2. DIVINE PUNISHMENT
Whenever a child of God disobeys the word of God, God punishes such a person. This can come by way of delivering the victim to Satan or his enemies.
Amos 2:4, Prov.23:23, Zec. 7:12,
2 Chr 36:16, 1Kings 13:17-26
Any student that is aiming for success in life must obey the instructions of the teacher or else failure will be the result at the end of the day. When you are not living by the word of God, success is not feasible.
Josh. 1:8, PS.1:2-3, Luke 5:5-6
It is our prayers that as we determine to live by the word of God daily, our lives shall be conformed unto His own image in Jesus name.
