Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Matthew 18:7
Are you living for the world or living for God? Seems like a simple question but its important to know the difference. The definition of Woe means great sorrow, misery, or distress. So when Jesus says “Woe to the world” he’s saying the world is condemned because of its sins.
That’s why it’s important we don’t follow the ways of the world such as greed, lust, envy, hatred, intoxication, ect these ways will only lead to your destruction. The good news is God has an answer to the sins of the world, and his name is Jesus
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. Matthew 18:8
Are there things in your life that are causing you to stumble in your spiritual life with God? If so cut them out, its better to suffer a little now than eternally. For example, are you addicted to pornography or drugs? Even though it seems hard you must cut these things out of your life that cause you to stumble. If you need help, trust in Jesus , who can break every chain
And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. Matthew 18:9
Again Jesus emphasizes cutting out the things it our life that makes us unholy. Will it be easy? No because we are all tempted by the flesh, but we must rely of the Holy Spirit to empower to resist temptation. So if they are things in your life that are causing you to sin, cut them out now! Trust in God who will supply all your needs in Jesus Name Amen
