Boy has horse, horse got out and ran wild, boy found horse, called him and the
horse had torn emotions to come back to his master or continue to run wild.
Three expressions of inward struggle.
BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL.
I Cor. 9:27 - Paul.
Had to buffet his body.
In flesh dwelleth no good thing.
Out of the heart comes.
Flesh is being pulled today by.
Within the Lord's Church today.
Some older people.
II Cor. 4:14-15.
People try to follow their own feelings.
Paganism always followed its feelings.
Matt. 4 - Jesus, when tempted, always went to the Word.
Relate to instrument board on an airplane.
BETWEEN THE GOOD AND THE BESTS.
Heb. 12:1-2 every weight.
Matt. 5:20 - your righteousness must exceed.
Matt. 5:43-47 - what more do ye than others.
Luke 10:38-42 - Jesus visited Lazarus.
Mary sat at Jesus feet.
Martha - cumbered up with many things.
BETWEEN SELFISHNESS AND SERVICE.
Matt. 20:20-28, John 13.
Must be servants.
Jesus took the lowest position to be great.
Let each of us be servants.
Some think they shouldn't have to do little things in the church.
Ex. Waiting on table "instead of something outwardly great".
Must dedicate ourselves to His service.
