No Comparisons

Gal. 5:26 “Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”

Gal. 6:3-5 “For if a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden.”

Look to God for proof of your works; do not make comparisons.

Cain compared himself to Abel . . . and killed him.
Esau compared himself to Jacob . . .and lost his inheritance. Saul compared himself to David . . . and developed mental problems!

You want to do some heavy comparisons? Here’s a crash course in comparisons:

A. Gal. 5:19-- Works of the flesh

Adultery
Fornication
Uncleanness (sexual impurity)
Lasciviousness (sexual excess)
Idolatry
Witchcraft (sorcery, tampering with powers of evil)
Hatred
Variance (discord)
Emulations (jealousy)
Wrath
Strife (selfish ambitions)
Seditions (dissensions)
Heresies (permanent, organized divisions)
Envyings
Murders
Drunkenness
Revellings (excessive eating and carousing)

(Those whose lives are habitually characterized by these sins and vices shall not inherit the kingdom of God.)

B. Gal. 5:22 Fruit of the Spirit

Love
Joy
Peace
Long-suffering
Gentleness
Goodness
Faith
Meekness
Temperance

Gal. 6:7-8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall reap of the flesh corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Choose the fruit; they’re from the Holy Spirit. The works are of the flesh; reject them and suffer them no room in your life.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I say REJOICE!
