What Are You Clinging To? (Mark 8:32-37)Tommy Boring, May 15, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
How many times have you told God no? Are you saved? If you're lost then you can't understand Gods Word. The work of the devil is to take the truth of God and make it a lie. Satan has not changed since the beginning, he still wants to defeat God. When one stands against the word of God then they are doing what the devil wants to do. Their isn't anything worse in this world other than being lost, not believing in Jesus Christ. Those horrible actions in the world are all sins but all can be forgiven. If one dies lost without forgiveness then they will open their eye being in hell. Do you really want to be committed to God? Why do we all want things our way so bad that we reject Gods way? Gods way is of faith, things usually not seen. The reasons you don't want Gods way is because you love the world, yourself more than God. If you're saved, live it! Do you have a problem fornicating, cussing, drinking, opening your bible, attending church, doing what God says? Check your "salvation"! Mark 8:34 You must deny yourself and get ready to suffer if you're a Christian, saved. If one has a problem following God, they are probably not saved. One must deny themselves completely, daily, suffer and follow Christ. "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." -Jim Elliot Mark 8:35 If one wants external life, they must let theirs go. If one could have everything they ever wanted from this world, money, love from others, fancy cars, large house, the best health, in the end of your life you die. None of those things will go with them. So in the end, what matters the most, the worldly needs or the eternal needs?

32And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 33But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men. 34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (KJV)
