Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 27 February 2023
Jesus’ warning about causing little ones who believe Him to sin (v.42) applies to all who are children of the kingdom, especially young believers. Causing such to stumble or discouraging them has very severe consequence. Identify ways people can cause believers to stumble or fall. Consider the following:
The Millstone on the neck :is a form of Greek and Roman punishment. It indicates severe consequences in this life.
Hell: It is three times stated here that fire in hell will never quench or extinguish. Punishment for sin is eternal.
Worm: Referring to real consciousness and life of the individual who goes to hell. Double or more illustration of this magnitude underscores its extreme importance. V.50: There is no way to renew salt that has lost its saltiness. We must therefore continue to positively preserve and sweeten the world in which we live lest we become useless and irrelevant.
In which ways can we ensure we do not lose our saltiness? How do we cut off the sources of sin in our lives? Paul prescribes the following: Crucify the old man (Colossians 3:5-9).
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14).
Walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16).
Also see 1 Peter 2:1 for Peter’s counsel.

May it never be!! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? – Romans 6:2
THANK GOD FOR:
► Dying for us on the cross and declaring that the power of sin over our lives is finished.
► Making us to be alive to Him in Christ Jesus.
· Grace to keep knowing that the flesh has become crucified with Christ, and that it is no longer I who live but Christ.
► Deliberate decision to remind myself daily that those who belong to Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
► Strength to daily submit totally to the Lordship of Jesus and not to mere elementary principles of the world.
► For peaceful election, security of lives and property during the election.
► Failing to allow the dead flesh remain dead, there by going back to our vomits.
► Bearing fruits for the flesh instead of bearing fruits of righteousness for God.
