TRUST IN ME (A CONTRAST)
Jeremiah 17: 7-8 But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, Whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.
The Scene: A contrast representing lives. On the left, a life filled with holy living, trying to listen to God and obey. On the right, a life lived without God, turned black by willful, sinful living that brings death to its surroundings, as opposed to bringing the light and life of God into the surrounding area.
Hebrews 10:26-27 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sin is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
In contrast– if we regularly practice holy living unto the Lord Jesus the results are far different. Trusting in the Lord gives true believers in Jesus Christ rewards of eternal blessings and life from our God. Sinning leads to destruction and ultimately to eternal death and punishment.
