THE EXTRA MILE

MATT 5:41

INTRO: JESUS SAID TO GO TWO MILES IF ASKED TO GO BUT ONE.

1: EFFORT

A) MENTAL OR PHYSICAL ENERGY THAT IS EXERTED TO ACHIEVE A PURPOSE.

B) JESUS CALLS FOR AN EXTRA EFFORT

C) GO TWO MILES

POINT: GOD WILL NEVER ASK OF YOU ANYTHIGN HE HASN’T ALREADY DONE HIMSELF. GO YE THEREFORE, THE COMMANDMENT OF CHRIST TO HIS DISCIPLES. HOW MANY DIFFERENT PLACES DID JESUS GO TO TEACH AND INSTRUCT PEOPLE IN THE WORD OF GOD? IT TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT!!!

2: COMMITMENT

A) SOMETHING THAT TAKES UP TIME AND ENERGY, ESPECIALLY AN OBLIGATION

B) LOYALTY: DEVOTION OR DEDICATION TO A CAUSE, PERSON, OR RELATIONSHIP

POINT: GOING THE EXTRA MILE TAKES EFFORT AND COMMITMENT. NOT TO A PASTOR OR SOME PERSON BUT TO YOUR SERVICE FOR AN ALMIGHTY GOD.

BODY: MATT 7:13-14

1: STRAIT GATE

A) THE WAY IS NARROW

B) STEEP AT TIMES

C) THIS WAY WILL CAUSE YOU TO QUESTION A LOT OF THINGS IN YOUR LIFE

POINT: THE PATH TO LIFE IN CHRIST CAUSES US TO LOOK AT OUR LIVES IN THE FLESH AND CHOOSE BETWEEN JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT OUR FLESH WANTS. THIS IS TRULY DIFFICULT AT TIMES FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

2: BROAD IS THE WAY

A) THE MESSAGE OF A DECEITFUL LIAR

B) IT’S EASIER AND A WHOLE LOT BETTER

C) TRUTH IS IT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION

POINT: THE SYSTEM OF THE WORLD NOW IS SET UP FOR PEOPLE TO ACCEPT FAILURE AND NEVER LOOK TO DO BETTER OR HAVE A TRUE COMMITMENT OR PUT FORTH ANY EFFORT. IF IT ‘S TO HARD JUST QUIT, GIVE UP AND FORGET IT!!!

3: MATT 7:7-8

A) THE WAY IS HARD AT TIMES

B) ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN

C) SEEK AN DYOU SHALL FIND

D) IF YOU PUT FORTH AN EFFORT AND HAVE COMMITMENT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST HE WILL HELP AND LEAD YOU THRU THE STRAIT NARROW PATHWAY.

CLOSING: THESE ARE SPOKEN WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST, HE SPOKE THESE WORDS FOR INSTRUCTION, TO TEACH AN BUILD UP PEOPLE TO SPREAD HIS WORD.

1: 2 TIM 3:5

A) SOME HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS

B) SADLY MOST DENY THE POWER OF GOD IN THEIR OWN LIVES

C) THE LOOK THE PART MAY EVEN SOUND IT BUT INSIDE THEY ARE FULL OF DEAD MENS BONES. MATT 23:27

POINT: WE ALL COME SHORT ROMANS 6:23, BUT IT IS STILL NOT A GOOD EXCUSE TO USE FOR OUR DO WHAT I WANT ATTITUDE.

2: JESUS TALKD THE TALK

A) HE REINFORCED HIS TALK WITH HIS WALK

B) NARROW AND STRAIT

C) 2 COR 5:21

FOR HE HATH MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM.

POINT: ONLY JESUS CAN TALK THAT WAY HE IS THE ONLY ONE QAULIFIED TO COMMAND AND ASK SUCH THINGS OF US. GO THE EXTRA MILE, STAY ON THE STRAIT PATH.

THE STRAIT WAY, THE NARROW PATHWAY LEADETH TO LIFE, WE WALK ON THE BROAD PATHWAY TO MANY TIMES.
