Focus on the Example

 

Matthew 5:13-16

~ Matthew 10:32-33  “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

Stand Honestly.

Stand for Truth.

~ Ephesians 4:25     Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.

Stand for Purity.

~ I Peter 1:15-16      but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

Stand for Righteousness.

~ Matthew 5:6     “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

~ Matthew 5:20     “For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

~ James 4:17     Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.

 

Stand Strongly.

Stand Shamelessly.

~ Mark 8:38      For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

Stand Courageously.

~ Matthew 10:32-33     “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

~ I Corinthians 6:9-11      Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

 

Stand Constantly.

Focus on the Goal.

~ I Corinthians 6:18-20      Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Refuse to be Distracted!

~ Hebrews 2:1     For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.

~ Hebrews 10:26-27     For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.

~ Galatians 5:4     You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

~ Hebrews 6:4-6      For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.
