I Can Do What I Want! Part 3

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.  1 Cor 6:12, NIV
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.  1 Cor 10:23, NIV

You certainly can, but just ask Samson …

He ignored the wise counsel of his parents, the ones whom God told Samson’s purpose and destiny.  Not only did this judge of Israel lose his vision (both spiritual and natural), foolish pride cut his life short (see Judges 13-16).

Thank God, He gave Jesus the right to save us from ourselves — IF we so choose!

“Turn Down for What?!”

Adam and Eve gave up fellowship with God and earthly dominion for one piece of fruit (Genesis 1:26).

Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked… Genesis 3:7

Esau gave up his birthright for a bowl of soup.  Genesis 25:29-33

Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”  Genesis 25:32

Samson gave up being set apart for God’s glory for the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (Judges 13-16, 1 John 2:16).

 I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb…but he did not know that the LORD had departed from him.  Judges 16:17, 20

Why give up the glorious for the common?
