Two Ways Of Life Contrasted

Text: Psalm 1:1-6

There are basically two groups in this world - the Godly and the ungodly. 


A.) The Godly Have A Hate Life.  

Even God has a hate life. Proverbs 6:16-19

God hates sin because He loves the sinners! 

To Love God is to Hate Sin!  Proverbs 8:13

1. The Godly Hate Godless Thinking: Psalm 1:1, Matt. 10:16

2. The Godly Hate Lawless Living:  Psalm 1:1

There Are Two Major Things That Keep Sinners From coming To Jesus As Saviour:  ONE: Immoral Practices, TWO: False Doctrine Concerning Jesus Christ And Salvation.  Because if we do, we will be “standing in the way of sinners.”  II Corinthians 6:14-18, II John 7-9 

3. The Godly Hate Careless Speaking: Psalm 1:1, Col. 4:6

B.) The Godly Have A Love Life.  Psalm 1:2

1. The Godly Love The Inspired Word:  The Bible. II Timothy 3:16-17

2. The Godly Love The Incarnate Word: Jesus Christ.    John 1:1, John 1:14

3. The Godly  Love The Embodied Word: The Word God in us and fleshed out.  

What is not incarnational is not redemptional, and what is not redemptional is not transforming. 

C.) The Godly Have A Testimony Of Christian Character.

1. They Have A Life Of Stability.

Psalm 1:3 “he shall be like a tree planted”

2. The Godly Have A Life Of Vitality. 

Psalm 1:3 “by the rivers of water,”

3. The Godly Have A Life Of Fertility.  

Psalm 1:3 “that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;”

4. The Godly Have A Life Of Consistency.  

Psalm 1:3 “his leaf also shall not wither;”

5. The Godly Have A Life Of Godly Prosperity. 

Psalm 1:3 “and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”


A.) The Ungodly Live The Opposite Of The Godly Who Operate With Christian Character.     

Psalm 1:4, “The ungodly are not so:” 

Everything we preached about the Godly, the ungodly does the opposite.  Psalm 1:3   No Stability, No Vitality, No Fertility No Consistency, No Prosperity

B.) The Ungodly Are Unstable And Will Be Counted As “Chaff”.  

Psalm 1:4 (Contrast) Ephesians 4:14 

Hebrews 12:1

C.) Judgment Is Coming To The Ungodly. 


Psalm 1:5-6
