Scripture:  Exodus 3:7-10

Why do I think that I can offer excuses for faith-related issues that would be laughed at if I used them anywhere else?  

 

God knows need and has a plan to address the need.  He calls Moses and the excuses start.

     1.  Who, me? 3:11-12

     2.  By what authority?  3:13-15

     3.  What if? 4:1-9

     4. But Lord, I don't do this stuff well. 4:10-12

     5.. Send someone else.  4:13-17

 

 Is it that I can't....or I won't?

Sermon Archiving Issues March-July

We apologize for not having updated the archive in a few months. Unfortunately, we've been having some audio recording issues that plagued us and have just recently figured out the problem. Starting this week, we will be restarting the archive and will hopefully not run into this issue again. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Key Text

John 8:31-36; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:14-19; Galatians 4:3-11

Main Points

  • Scripture is concerned more about that you’ve sinnedthan the content of your sin.
  • We can either be slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness. There is no in-between.
  • When we become slaves to righteousness by accepting Jesus’ sacrifice, He also “adopts” us and we are made sons and daughters of God.
  • In our Journey with God, each time a sin is revealed in our life, we must decide whether to hold onto that sin or let go of it and follow Jesus. Damage and pain comes when people try to choose both.
  • If I don’t let go of my sin, I project it onto my Christian life. The content of my “sin” might be more holy or righteous, but I am not.
  • Pray and ask God to reveal the sins you need to let go of.

Focus Questions

  1. What areas of my life am I still holding on to?
  2. Have I brought any sins into my new life in Christ?
  3. What do I need to do to let go of those sins?
