Scripture: Mark 9:44-46
Mark 9:44-46 states, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched — where ‘Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched.’ And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched — where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’” We are told if our foot causes us to sin, cut it off. It is better to enter into life without a foot than to completely destroy all future spiritual fruit by choosing not to align ourselves in obedience with God’s Word. Immaturity or a lack of purposeful growth in knowing God might not seem to be weighty issues, but both can lead to disobedience. Only obeying God’s Word and having intimacy with Him puts us in a position to move His Hand and bring His purposes to pass in the earth. The question is, are we doing it?
