Summary: Do we have an honest evaluation system where we hold the heart accountable? How vunlernable are we?
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME?
SUSCEPTIBLE OR VULERNABLE
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
Use 1 Sam. 24 David and Saul in cave at En-Gadi.
2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
I. CAN WE UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALTHY AND UNHEALTHY?
1 Cor. 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,
neither yet now are ye able.
Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach
you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have
need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Well, fit, trim, wholesome, nourishing
Not good, harmful, dangerous to life, sick, frail, unsound,
in poor condition...
C. WE CAN PLAY GAMES WITH THE SALT SHAKER, SUGAR, CIGARETTES,
THE GAMES COME TO A FINAL CONCLUSION...
II. CAN OUR LIFESTYLES AND CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES 20 YEARS LATER?
Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
A. Seems 9 people can say something wonder about you...
and 1 persons can grunt toward you and YOU WILL POUT FOR DAYS?
Sensitive, open, proned
Easily wounded --- easy to harm
Exposed to damage
III. JUST AS THE PHYSICAL BODY CAN BE AFFECTED/EFFECTED BY SICKNESSES AND
DISEASES --- THE INDIVIDUAL CAN HAVE A DISEASE OF THE PANCREAS, THE LUNGS,
THE BLOOD, THE EYES, THE GIZZARD...
Matthew 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but
onsiderest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;
and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam
out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of
thy brother's eye.
A. VISION--- HEALTHY VS UNHEALTHY...
THE EYES CAN:
1. NEAR SIGHTED ... MYOPIC ... Can not see objects in the distance...
2. FAR SIGHTED ... ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY ONLY AT A DISTANCE....
3. TUNNEL VISION ... The ability to see only in a narrow path in front of eyes...
1. IMAGINATION VISION... Phantom... MIRAGE
2. ROMANTIC VISION...
3. HIND SIGHT...
C. PERCEPTION... JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS...
IV. CAN THE INDIVIDUAL OR CAN THE CHURCH HAVE A DISEASE, A SPIRITUAL DISEASE.
IT IS MUCH EASIER TO DIAGNOSE A PHYSICAL PROBLEM THAN A SPIRITUAL SICKNESS.
1 Peter 2:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
THERE IS NO SPIRITUAL FAVOUR WHICH MAY NOT BE A RESULTS OF HEART-SEARCHING....
DIAGNOSE: Study the symptoms to determind or identify the disease..
B. Pain, a cough, a rash
C GROVERS DISEASE... Got pills, got a shot, SHINGLES?
D. There was a church facing terrible problems. After prayer someone asked the pastor to check
the church's computers... one computer was infested by terrible PORNOGRAPHY.
It was the Pastor's computer. THE PROBLEM WAS EXPOSED...
V. WE NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP US BE SENSITIVE TO BECOME DIAGNOSTICIANS,
