Dealing with the root cause

24일 전

Mark 9:42-50
42KJV:And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

43KJV:And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44KJV:Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45KJV:And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46KJV:Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47KJV:And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48KJV:Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

49KJV:For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

50KJV:Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

In the Bible passages, what did you understand? Is Jesus actually telling us to cut ourselves so we could make heaven? The answer is "No". Jesus is simply telling us to identify the root cause of sin in our lives and deal with it.

" cutting off our hands" implies that we should not attend to any sinful tendencies no matter how attractive it it. Also, it suggests that if a particular thing for example, the most common; social media network is that hand or eye, withdraw from its membership for heaven sake.

You must be ready to lose something pleasurable to gain heaven. Your resolution must be deliberate.
Until you are ready to lose something, you are not ready to make heaven.

Conclusion

Have you identified the "hand, eye or foot" in your life? Are you ready to cut it off? Until you do that, you are not ready for heaven.
Remember that heaven is more than just a place.
Choose heaven and deal with your root cause..!

Stay ever blessed..!
