1 The 3 R’s

2 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal 2 Corinthians 4: 18

3 The 3 R’s “Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:

4 The 3 R’s The promise of adoption

5 The 3 R’s Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. Make room for us in your hearts. We have wronged no-one, we have corrupted no-one, we have exploited no -one.

6 The 3 R’s I do not say this to condemn you; I have said before that you have such a place in our hearts that we would live or die with you. I have great confidence in you; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds. 2 Corinthians 7: 1 - 4

7 The 3 R’s Holy sacred set apart

8 The 3 R’s For when we came into Macedonia, this body of ours had no rest, but we were harassed at every turn — conflicts on the outside, fears within. But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus 2 Corinthians 7: 5 - 6

9 The 3 R’s Now the Amalekites… had attacked Ziklag and burned it, and had taken captive the women and all who were in it, both young and old… When David and his men came to Ziklag, they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. So David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep…

10 The 3 R’s David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God. 1 Samuel 30: 1 – 4, 6

11 The 3 R’s T elling the truth often hurts

12 The 3 R’s Even if I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it. Though I did regret it - I see that my letter hurt you, but only for a little while – yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us 2 Corinthians 7: 8 - 9

13 The 3 R’s Telling the truth could result in misunderstanding or rejection

14 The 3 R’s Be sorry – with no real change worldly sorrow word of man Be sorry – and change godly sorrow word of God

15 The 3 R’s R epentance worldly sorrow leads to resentment godly sorrow leads to repentance

18 The 3 R’s R edemption worldly sorrow leads to death godly sorrow leads to redemption

19 The 3 R’s Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death 2Corinthians 7: 10

20 The 3 R’s salvation = redemption deliverance escape

21 The 3 R’s R enewal worldly sorrow stops at sorrow godly sorrow leads to renewal

22 The 3 R’s See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done. At every point you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter. 2Corinthians 7: 11

23 The 3 R’s Both had respectable positions in the group of disciples On different occasions – both were pulled up by Jesus They were both warned about what they were going to do While no one expected them to be perfect – none thought that they would do what they actually did! Judas betrayed Christ and Peter denied knowing Jesus

24 The 3 R’s Both regretted their actions and were filled with sorrow Judas continued in his attitude that he knew best what to do and took his life Peter allowed his confidence in self to be broken and grow in relationship with the Lord

25 The 3 R’s Godly sorrow flows from a place of humility, a place of brokenness

26 The 3 R’s
