REJECTING THE TRUTH            Page 6

EXTRICATE

** Let’s go back to our opening question for today. What about those around us who spend their entire lives “Rejecting the Truth”? How are we to view them, what is our impact to be on their lives?

First - We must view them as our gracious God does, exhibited by the apostle Peter when he said, “The Lord...is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” We too should not desire for any man to perish!

Second - We must preach the gospel of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. cf. Acts 20:18-21

DELINEATE

** What are some of the glaring mistakes made by sinful men which we have seen in today’s passage?

While men are under the influence of the mystery of lawlessness, they will continually ...

1) be in opposition to Christ (V.6-7)
2) trust in demonic power (V.9)
3) deceive, like the one who deceives them (V.10)
4) base all of their actions in wickedness (V.10)
5) reject the truth (V.10 and 12)
6) derive their pleasure from wickedness (V.12)

EVALUATE

** How is being aware of all of this going to help you the next time you try to present the gospel to someone who is lost in their sin?

The better we understand the target, the more likely we are to hit it. We need to meet people where they are at, and then present God’s saving truth to them.

ACTIVATE

** We should be consumed with a desire for God’s people to spread the gospel. Are you willing to prepare yourself with this better understanding of those who spend their entire lives “Rejecting the Truth” and in response; present to them the Truth which can set them free?
