2010 Nov Die To Self--Women's Ministry Guest

Post  Admin on Fri 12 Nov 2010, 22:23

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Colossian’s 3:5

1. (n.) The worship of idols, images, or anything which is not God; the worship of false gods.
2. (n.) Excessive attachment or veneration for anything; respect or love which borders on adoration.

For this study, we are going to jump into dying to self. In Colossian’s 3:5 our focus is on the word idolatry. The definition is listed here too. Anything which gets our respect, love or adoration can be considered idolatry if it is in excess. Think about that for a second, eating too much food could be considered idolatry. This study is not for condemnation it is for conviction. Remember we have a God who loves us dearly, and we are to abide in his love from October's women’s study; we need to grow too though. This month examine yourself in a healthy way as to how we can change those selfish ways, cast down our idols; things we do in excess even if it is grumbling or complaining. If you have a spirit of complaining, stop feeding it. To stop things from growing we have to cut off its food supply, and that is to stop feeding it. We have an enemy, if you catch yourself this month working out of you some of these things and feel attacked, quote your memory verse out loud and stop yourself from feeding the enemy. Practice self-control! God’s word has power; say your verse out loud a few times. Make a commitment--no more pity parties, stop negative comments, and choke out the Bermuda grass in your life by not feeding it any more.

Reminder of November's memory verse below:
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. Psalms 107:1

Listen to Psalms 107 KJV in Audio

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. KJV Psalms 107:1


Written exercise: Write down what is eating you? Tuck it away in your bible, say a prayer and ask God to help you deal with it.

Remember, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty Psalms 91:1”.

We women tend to struggle with sadness off and on, one day this month find something of yours that you are attached to and give it away. I do not want you to give away all your stuff, that is not what I am saying. If you have something as an example a necklace that is special to you, give it to your daughter or daughter-in-law it can be anything simple. Pray about it first for God to show you what to give; keep your eyes open for a need and meet someone’s need. The best way to get over sadness is to get your mind off yourself.
