"Flee! Pursue!"

February 28, 2014

“Flee! Pursue!”

Blessings folk!

Morbid interest in controversy
Disputes about words
Abusive language
Evil suspicions
Constant friction
Depraved of mind
Deprived of truth
Pursuit of gain
Love of money
Wandering away from the faith
Pierced with grief

Such are those who do not know the sound doctrine of the Most High God.

Many within the professing church are among such.

What are we to do?

The Word tells us.

We are to:
  • flee
  • pursue
  • fight
  • take hold
  • keep


1 Corinthians 6:11
11 But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness.

Flee what things?
The evil things mentioned earlier.

Pursue what?

  • Righteousness
  • Godliness
  • Faith
  • Love
  • Perseverance
  • Gentleness

These are what the man of God is to pursue.
These are what the Body of Christ should be exhibiting.

Sadly, we see more of the earlier, fleshly list than we do of the “pursue” list.

What are you pursuing?

Ask the Lord.
Give heed to His response.
