Slide8:

Real Life Z ombies [ Eph  2:1 ESV] And you were dead in  the trespasses  and  sins [ Eph  2:2 ESV] in which you once walked, following  the  course of this world,  following the prince of the  power  of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the  sons  of disobedience-- [ Eph 2:3 ESV] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

Slide9:

[Rom 7:14 ESV]  For  we know that the  law  is  spiritual, but  I am of the  flesh ,  sold  under sin .

Slide10:

[Rom 3:10 ESV] as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; [Rom 3:11 ESV] no one understands; no one seeks for God. [Rom 3:12 ESV] All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one." [Rom 3:13 ESV] "Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive." "The venom of asps is under their lips." [Rom 3:14 ESV] "Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness." [Rom 3:15 ESV] "Their feet are swift to shed blood; [Rom 3:16 ESV] in their paths are ruin and misery, [Rom 3:17 ESV] and the way of peace they have not known." [Rom 3:18 ESV] "There is no fear of God before their eyes." [Rom 3:19 ESV] Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God.

Slide11:

[1Jo 3:14 ESV] We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death. [1Jo 3:15 ESV] Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

Slide12:

Zombies do not like Moral G oodness . [1Co 3:3 ESV] for you are  still of the flesh . For while there is jealousy  and  strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a  human  way? [1Co 3:4 ESV] For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another,  " I follow Apollos," are you not being merely human? [1Co 2:14 ESV]  The natural person does not accept the things of the  Spirit  of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand  them  because they are spiritually discerned . Abortion & Sexual Immorality is promoted as good

Slide13:

Are zombies hard to find?

Slide14:

Zombies are better organized than the movies. The have leaders. “false teachers” [ 2Ti 3:2 ESV] For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, [2Ti 3:3 ESV] heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, [2Ti 3:4 ESV] treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, [2Ti 3:5 ESV] having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. [2Ti 3:6 ESV] For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, [2Ti 3:7 ESV] always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.

Slide16:

How to know if you are NOT a zombie   You Love Jesus Christ   Luke 10:27  And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

Slide17:

2. You want God most of all. Proverbs 8:17  I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

Slide18:

What does it look like to diligently seek the Lord?   John 14:21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”

Slide19:

Diligently seek the Lord Isaiah 55:6-7  “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Slide20:

You Love God more than the World. James 4:4  You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Slide21:

3. Psalm 119 is a description of you. [ Psa 119:4 ESV] You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. [ Psa 119:5 ESV] Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes! [ Psa 119:6 ESV] Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments. [ Psa 119:7 ESV] I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules. [ Psa 119:9 ESV] [Beth] How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. [ Psa 119:10 ESV] With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! [ Psa 119:11 ESV] I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. [ Psa 119:12 ESV] Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes!

Slide22:

[ Psa 119:13 ESV] With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth. [ Psa 119:14 ESV] In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. [ Psa 119:15 ESV] I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. [ Psa 119:16 ESV] I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word. [ Psa 119:17 ESV] [Gimel] Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live and keep your word. [ Psa 119:18 ESV] Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. [ Psa 119:19 ESV] I am a sojourner on the earth; hide not your commandments from me!
