I beat my body and make it my slave!

Main scripture for this study: 1Cor.9:27

No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others,

I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

A. Who am I?

1. Recognize this! I am a living soul lives in my body! 

2. Recognize this, this is my body! 1Cor.15:45

3. I am responsible to make it my slave! 

4. I can’t afford to let it makes me a slave!

5. My body has all the reason to make me a slave!

6. The worst my body gets is return to dust!

7. But I have to go to hell to suffer forever!

B. Do not deceive yourself! Ro.7:19-25

1. In believe Jesus you can’t say “I can’t” stop do evil!

2. No such thing as I can’t stop smoking, drinking, gambling… in believe Jesus!

3. For what I do is not the good I want to do;

    no, the evil I do not want to do-- this I keep on doing. Ro.7:19

4. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it,

    but it is sin living in me that does it. Ro.7:20

5. So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. Ro.7:21

6. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of

    my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of

    sin at work within my members. Ro.7:22-23

7. Yes, by myself I may be a wretched man! Ro.7:24

8. Thanks be to God-- through Jesus Christ our Lord! Ro.7:25

    Please do not deceive yourself!

    If Jesus is your Lord, you can beat your body and make it your slave! Not the other way around!

C. Always remember: God cannot be mocked! Gal.6:6-8

1. Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor! Gal.6:6

    Many among “believers” mock God by withholding their contribution to support their preacher!

    They love his preaching but contribution little or nothing!

2. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows! Gal.6:7

3. The one who sows to please his body, from that body will reap destruction! Gal.6:8

4. The one who sows to please the Spirit from the Spirit will reap eternal life! Gal.6:8

5. Attention: Bad habits, addictions?! These are results of the body makes you a slave!

6. Remember, the body has nothing to lose!

    The worst it gets is return to dust where it came!

    But you, the living soul are the one who will suffer in hell forever!

7. Please do not say: I can!  The Bible says you can!

    Yes, you can make your body your slave! If you believe Jesus is Lord!

8. If you say, you believe Jesus is Lord and addicted to bad things!

    You are mocking yourself and God! 

    Repent, immediately! Otherwise be ready to be in hell!

D. Did you say: It is sin that makes me do it!? Ro.7:19-20

1. For what I do is not the good I want to do!

    It is the evil I do not want to do, this I keep on doing! Ro.7:19

2. Now it I do what I do not want to do, it is sin living in me that does it! Ro.7:20

3. This is why we have to believe Jesus is Lord!

4. The remedy is easy! Get rid of that sin that makes you do it!

5. Yes, I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Phil.4:13

E. Conclusion:

1. Who is the boss?  I, the living soul or my body in which I live!

2. Do not kid yourself!  Absolutely, do not mock God! 

3. If you believe Jesus is Lord, you will have no bad habits whatsoever!

May the Lord bless you and keep you always! Preach this May 20, 2018.
