No Middle Ground

Lesson No.


Oct 22, 2022

Subject: No Middle Ground

Scripture Reading: Matthew 15: 1 – 20

Memory Verses: Luke 5: 31 – 32

Objective: To remind us that you are either for or against God.

1. What sad reality did Jesus bring to our attention about the scribes and Pharisees? Matthew 15: 3, 7 – 9

Note: Jesus made it plain that the prophecy of Isaiah was right. Some gave lip service; they were far from truth and reality. Jesus summed up their worship as useless, waste of time and unacceptable by God.

2. How does Jesus describe those who nullify his words, in order to do their “own” thing? And what will be their shameful end? Matthew 15: 12 – 15

3. Some people believe that a little righteousness and a little sin will make a good mix, however, how does our Saviour settle this practice? Luke 16: 13 – 14

4. Who are the two types of believers mentioned Matthew 25: 1 – 4, 14 – 15, 19 – 23, 24, 25 & 30

5. What profound message is sent to God’s church by the prophet Isaiah? Isaiah 1: 16 – 17, 19 – 20

6. In writing to the Laodicean church, what did Jesus tell them about their spiritual condition? Revelation 3: 14 – 18

Note: Again, it is plain, it is clear, it is true, there is no middle ground with God’s standard of righteousness. Do the right and live and if you are not doing right, repent and turn to God. He is no respecter of person. In the parable of the ten virgins (church members) those who did not have enough oil were “shut out” and those who lived up to God’s words were “shut in” you can only be in or out!
