 (I want to apologize for beginning on week two of the Toxic series, I was unable to attend or get the handout the first night.)
Toxic: Week Two
– Toxic: anything containing posionous material capable of causing serious sickness or even death.
Proverbs 25:26: ‘Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.’
Three things to remember:
1) A little bit of POISON goes a long way.
1 Corinthians 5:6-7: “Don’t you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast — as you really are.”
2) Just because everyone else does it, doesn’t make it RIGHT.
Romans 12:2 (MSG paraphrase): “Do not become so well-adjusted to your culture that you FIT INTO IT WITHOUT EVEN THINKING. Instead, FIX YOUR ATTENTION ON GOD. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops a well-formed maturity in you.”
3) Just because I COULD, doesn’t mean I SHOULD.
1 Corinthians 6:12: “Everything is permissable for me, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissable for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.”
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22: “Test everything. Hold on to good. Avoid every kind of evil.”
