|The unregenerate soul lives in a riled state.|
1 Corinthians 2:14 describes that soul's pathetic
condition which is incapable of grasping spiritual
realities. Unless God's Holy Spirit breaks forth
upon that individual soul, that unregenerate
soul will be forever darkened.
“The Unregenerate” - This Sunday's “summer snippet”
Short definition of “unregenerate:”
|The Scriptures teach about the|
woeful sinful condition of every
human being. Sinners, sin
because they were born that
way; and sinners, sin because of
daily personal choice.
Psalm 51:5 - “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” – KJV
Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:…..” – KJV
Matthew 15:16-20 - So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.” – NKJV
Romans 8:6-8 - “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.”
Matthew 7:17- “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”

This Week’s Related Scriptures -- Intended to be utilized in a simple worship format:
Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures:
Psalm 25:1-22 – Especially verse Psalm 25:4-5 and Psalm 25:8-9. The “Lord” is not called “Lord” for nothing. He is the initiating force and factor in the life of a child of God.
New Testament Christian Scriptures:
John 3:1-21 – Christ must illuminate the needy and sinful human soul. In the Greek language, the phrase in verse 3 is: being born “from above.” This correlates with John 1:12-13. Even though a sinner is commanded to repent and believe, that process initiates from the good and gracious action of a loving Triune God.
