Deliver Us From Evil - Obedient Unto Death For Them

The Lord's Prayer is loaded with spiritual truths that we nonchalantly pray and do not realize the depth or the importance of Jesus' teaching His disciples to pray in Luke 11: 2-4

11 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

3 Give us day by day our daily bread.

4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

The two things God focused on Sunday was bread, not only for us to eat but to serve to others a hot and fresh now word from heaven. With you and I serving this fresh daily bread, others would have a divine encounter through us with the Father. The only way we will be able to do that is to be delivered from evil. This evil is our selfish nature which God elaborated on through the message in 1 Peter 2:11-12, Romans 7:14-25, and James 1:2-17.

Why do we have to be obedient unto death??? Well, Jesus was our example. In Philippians

2:8, Jesus humbled himself and became obedient unto death: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. One of the meanings of death in this verse means: the misery of the soul arising from sin.



If we do not become obedient unto our "death" and carry our cross daily, we cannot be his disciple, Luke 14:27. Powerful verse, we have to overcome our selfish desire and carry our cross daily or we cannot be HIS DISCIPLE. Not only do we have to carry our cross and overcome our self, but God asked a powerful question at the end, will you be a Simon, according to Mark 15:21-22, and carry someone's else cross to their "death" so they can overcome themselves, bury their old sinful nature, and be resurrected a new creature in Christ.

Questions to answer for this week's discussion:

1) What must you do DAILY to be delivered from evil? Who really do we need to delivered from?

2) Do you recognize the two wars going on this year? If so, what are they?

3) What does "O wretched man that I am" mean to you now that you heard it in this context on Sunday? Read Romans 7:14-25 for a refresher.

4) What must you do in order for you to become His disciple? What steps have you taken this week to show God you carried your cross from Sunday?

5) What does become a Simon mean to you?

6) Did you put your old self in the coffin and push it down the river at the altar?

7) What was your AHA moment from this message.


Being Obedient Unto Death with you,

Rev. Ryan Welker

Amanda. Thank you for your short sweet to the point post, seeing how evil our flesh really is, and how we need His help to be delivered from it. You got the heartbeat of the message. Being a stay at home mom and home schooling is a full time job and ministry for sure and there are MANY opportunities for parents to be delivered from our evil flesh. 🤣🤣

Great answer to question #4:

4. What must you do in order for you to become His disciple? What steps have you taken this week to show God you carried your cross from Sunday?

To be delivered from evil daily, we have to be delivered from ourselves! Our self-serving motivation and desires.


2) Do you recognize the two wars going on this year? If so, what are they?

The war this year is over souls. Others souls and my soul.


3) What does "O wretched man that I am" mean to you now that you heard it in this context on Sunday? Read Romans 7:14-25 for a refresher.

It means that the struggle with evil is a self inflicted struggle. But until we can see our selfish desires as evil we will never recognize the…

Excellent post Melissa. Thank you for fasting for others during Purim and then sending that old self down the river this past Sunday. Looking forward to the resurrection testimonies from your harvest field.


Great answer to question #3:

"3) What does "O wretched man that I am" mean to you now that you heard it in this context on Sunday? Read Romans 7:14-25 for a refresher.

"It means that the struggle with evil is a self inflicted struggle. But until we can see our selfish desires as evil we will never recognize the war and be able to say "O wretched man that I man". -- Exactly. Once we see this, we will be able to see others more tha…

Die to self. The evil I have to be delivered from is my own self. "I found the enemy and the enemy is me."


2) Do you recognize the two wars going on this year? If so, what are they?

War for souls. Mine and others. It's easy to se that there is a war over others souls, but don't neglect that fact that if you yourself get taken out by your own sinful nature, who will lead others to salvation.

Amanda. Great post. Thank you for seeing the evil and recognizing it that it is ourselves. Once we know that, we can be delivered from ourselves. If we do not see it, we will never change, stay stuck on self, and never serve others "bread from heaven" for them to eat. We will serve them to feed our egotistical self. Ughhh.... When we finally come to the end of ourselves, we are willing to make "whatever" bread is need to satisfy that hunger and thirst for the divine answer that is needed for that individual to eat.

Looking forward to hearing about you being a Simon and carrying someone else's cross and you pick up yours daily. Remember clear your…

Die to self early and often.


2) Do you recognize the two wars going on this year? If so, what are they?

There's a war for the soul of the people I know and my own.


3) What does "O wretched man that I am" mean to you now that you heard it in this context on Sunday?

I know the right answer but that doesn't always mean I do the right answer.

Agreed! ”I know the right answer but that doesn't always mean I do the right answer.” It‘s one thing to be ignorant, but knowing and not doing: that’s wretched.
