THIS WORLD HAS NOTHING FOR ME

  1. 1. The Major Decision of Faith! • This physical world is what we grow up knowing by experience. 1 Timothy 6:7; Acts 17:26 • The heavenly world is what we learn about and grow up in by faith and diligent study. 1 Corinthians 2:12-14 • Like Paul and Moses we need come to the realization that “this world” has nothing for me but God surely does have something waiting for us. Phil. 3:1-11; Hebrews 11:23-ff
  2. 2. Lessons From The Past • Moses’ parents displayed an example of Faith in this truth that this world has nothing for me! Hebrews 11:23; 2 Cor. 5:7 – Their faith led them to do other than “the world” said to do. Exodus 2:3; 1:22 – They knew to obey God rather than men! Genesis 18:19; Eccl. 12:13 – They knew it was wrong to kill the innocent. Genesis 9:5-6; Proverbs 6:17 – Their faith along with Miriam’s was rewarded and his mother was allowed to nurse Moses. Exodus 2:8-10
  3. 3. Moses’ Faith Is Displayed! • We know that faith comes by hearing the word of God. Romans 10:17 • Notice what Moses did by faith… – When he came of age HE REFUSED to be called the son of Pharoah’s daughter. V.24 – He chose to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin. V.25 – He esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; FOR HE LOOKED TO THE REWARD. V.26; 1 Jn. 2:25
  4. 4. Moses’ Faith Is Displayed! • Notice what Moses did by faith… –He stood for justice… Acts 7:23-24 –He thought that God would use him to deliver the Israelites. Acts 7:25 –He forsook (left) Egypt! Hebrews 11:27 –He did not fear the wrath of the king! –He endured as seeing HIM who is invisible! • His heavenly Father whom he never saw yet but trusted in Him. Heb. 11:1 • Moses showed by faith, this world has nothing for me!
  5. 5. Do You Walk By Faith! • Paul demonstrated the right way to live in 2 Corinthians 5:7! • Like Moses, by faith we need to live for God knowing assuredly that this world has nothing for me but Jesus does! Heb. 11; John 10:10 • Be saved today by: – Hearing & believing the gospel…Rom.10:9-10 – Repenting of sin… Acts 11:18 – Confess Christ… Acts 8:37 – Baptism into Christ… Romans 6:3-6 – Faithfully obedient living… Hebrews 10:36
