A Way of Life-Rashaad Rollison



Proverbs‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭(AMPC‬‬)

"He who heeds instruction and correction is [not only himself] in the way of life [but also] is a way of life for others. And he who neglects or refuses reproof [not only himself] goes astray [but also] causes to err and is a path toward ruin for others."

Neglect:

fail to care for properly; to pay no attention or too little attention to; disregard or slight

Synonyms:

Forsake, mistreat, abandon 

Proverbs‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)

People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life, but those who ignore correction will go astray.

‭‭

Discipline:

Is the quality of being able to behave and work in a controlled way which involves obeying particular rules or standards.

Proverbs‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭(MSG‬‬) 

The road to life is a disciplined life; ignore correction and you’re lost for good.

‭‭

Correction:

The action or process of correcting something

Hebrews‬ ‭13:7‬ ‭(NIV‬‬) 

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.

Hebrews‬ ‭13:7 (MSG‬‬) 

Appreciate your pastoral leaders who gave you the Word of God. Take a good look at the way they live, and let their faithfulness instruct you, as well as their truthfulness.

Hebrews‬ ‭13:7‬ (‭AMPC‬‬)

"Remember your leaders and superiors in authority [for it was they] who brought to you the Word of God. Observe attentively and consider their manner of living (the outcome of their well-spent lives) and imitate their faith (their conviction that God exists and is the Creator and Ruler of all things, the Provider and Bestower of eternal salvation through Christ, and their leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness)."

Genesis‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭(NIV‬‬)

“And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."

‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭(AMPC‬‬)

"No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God's nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God. By this it is made clear who take their nature from God and are His children and who take their nature from the devil and are his children: no one who does not practice righteousness [who does not conform to God's will in purpose, thought, and action] is of God; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ)."
