ISAIAH 31:6-7
6. They helped everyone his neighbour; and everyone said to his brother, Be of good courage.

7. So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

15. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.


LESSON INTRODUCTION: Backsliding is turning away or turning back from the LORD. It is falling from the spiritual level one has attained Revelation 2:5. It is putting one’s hand to the plough and looking back. Luke 9:62, Proverbs 26:11, Matthew 5:13.

i. You are either cold or hot.
ii. Backsliding is just like going back to your vomit.



1. SPIRITUAL PRIDE: This is when one begins to focus on one’s works and not the works of Christ on the cross. Our works are not the basis of our repentance by God. Pride goes before destruction Proverbs 16:18, James 4:6, 1 Corinthians 10:12, Luke 22:33.

2. LACK OF HUNGER FOR THE WORD OF GOD: Luke 4:4, Acts17:11, Job 23:12.

3. A SICK OR NON-EXISTING PRAYER LIFE: When a Christian doesn’t pray privately as much as he used to do, he is backsliding. Jesus says man ought always to pray and not to faint. Luke 18:1, Matthew 6:6.


5. CONTROL BY THE FLESH: When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your life will produce these evil results: serial immorality, impure thoughts, Idolatry, an outburst of anger, selfish ambition, envy etc Galatians 5:19-21, 1 Timothy 5:6, Proverbs 21:17, 1 Timothy 6:10.

6. LIVING A HYPOCRITICAL LIFE: When a Christian begins to live a double life – he flows with sinners while pretending a form of godliness among believers Ma15:7-9, Mark 7:6-10.

7. WITHDRAW FROM FELLOWSHIP WITH SAINTS: Psalm 122:1, Psalm 84:10, Hebrew 10:25 says Christians should not be forsaken assembling together of fellow Christians.



1. Watch and pray Matthew 26:41, Mark 14:38, and Luke 22:46.

2. Walk in the Spirit and embrace holy living Luke 4:1-13, 1 John 3:9, 1 John 2:4, Romans 13:10.

3. Do regular self-examination 2 Corinthians 13, 1 John 1:9-10, Revelation 2:5-6.

4. Pray for one another and fellowship with others. 1 Corinthians 12:26, Luke 22:31-32, Ephesians 6:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:25, Hebrew 10:25.

ACTIVITY: Discuss why believers still backside.

SUMMARY: Backsliding just going back to your vomit.

CONCLUSION: There is restoration for the backside if he repents and returns to God. Confess and forsake sins, and return to God. He’ll is real, don’t die in your sin. “Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings” Jeremiah 3:22.
