DEGRADATION (condition of degrading or degraded)

HIGHLIGHTS                                              God created mankind in His image. Man failed to maintain the standard of God’s holiness. They did not worship the true God but replaced God with Idols. God gave mankind a reprobate mind. God showed His patience not wanting anyone to perish but to return to Him. Can man get back to God with these Degradation he’s done?


DEGRADATION                                                 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools. 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Rom 1:21-23

GOD’S PUNISHMENT                                      And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper Rom 1:28

APPROVAL DEGRADATI ON                      And although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. Rom 1:32

WHAT IS OUR BASIS OF DEGRADATION?CREATED IN HIS IMAGE                              God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  GEN 1:27 

THE FRUIT                                                      But from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.”  GEN 3:3

GOOD AND EVIL                                            The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!” For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” GEN 3:4-5

WE DEGRADED BY PLAYING GOD                For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 2TIM 4:3-4

^^^ Our responsibility to accept the finished work of Christ. The death and resurrection gave you a new beginning.  A new living way, the veil have been torn.His Grace has come and we’re saved.

BE ENLIGHTENED                                           I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might EPH 1:18-19

AS WE END                                              Degradation comes when we don’t have Christ in our lives. We are not with rational reasoning but with Christ moral reasoning. Do not play God. Live with His Grace.
