Sermons about Guilt
A couple of weeks ago, we considered Peter’s three denials of Jesus. We remember his anguish upon the hearing of the rooster crowing, because Jesus had prophesied of these denials. Today, we return to that story, but see the renewal of commitment. In Peter’s story we are reminded that God loves to give a second chance.
Sometimes we think that because of God's love and grace our sin is no big deal. After all, we're trying, right? Other times we seem to think that God's definition of sin is arbitrary, that he made up the rules just to make our lives difficult to keep us from having too much fun. Still other times, we seem to believe that since God is "in charge," then anything that goes wrong (including sin) is his fault. This message is an attempt to answer the questions, "Why is sin such a big deal to God? How does it hurt God when we sin?"
Using David's confession in Psalm 51 as a guide for how we enter into confession: conviction, response of responsibility and asking for help, and willingness to teaching.
Our moral judgment and speech are powerful. How should we approach judgement? In Matthew 7: 1-6 Jesus explains what He expects from his followers. This passage speaks of our self-righteous tendency to compare ourselves to others. We think that sin is always “out there,” but we forget that sin is alive and well “in here,” that is, in each once of us.
Pastor Jared preaches about the woman who was caught in the act of adultery and Jesus' response.
Christ's death is the perfect sacrifice for humanity's sins against God. This perfect sacrifice cleanses those who place their faith in Christ so that we can live without guilt. In Christ sinful individuals are totally accepted and forgiven.
“If you really loved God, you’d be good. Obviously, you don’t love God. Why do you keep falling into the same sin over and over again? Why do you keep failing like you do? You must not be a very serious Christian." We have all told ourselves this at one time or another. In this sermon Rev. Frankie exponds on the difference between guilt and genuine conviction that leads to repentance.
