Sermons about Indwelling Sin
In Colossians 3:5-11, Paul calls Christians to deal ruthlessly with sin by putting it death.
Forgiveness is essential to our relationship with God and to one another. It is the heart of being a Christian. It is essential to the life, health, and unity of the church. The Lord Himself emphasizes the importance of the issue when He spends 3x as many verses on this than any other in the prayer, and in giving it a weight that surpasses the other request 4 Reasons why forgiveness is essential to the Christian life: Because of the Reality of Sin Because we need God’s forgiveness Because forgiveness is essential to unity and growth. Because forgiveness marks a true believer.
An Exposition of Galatians 2:11-21
Paul moves from our great privilige to our great responsibility- to walk in/by the Spirit. It is founded on the graces of justification & adoption, and is the grace of sanctification. It has both positive and negative aspects: the fruit of the Spirit & the putting to death of the desires of the flesh. This sermon covers putting sin to death.
There is (another) crisis over the gospel. It is not a matter of semantics, but one that revolves around whether or not we are united with Christ and recipients of grace. Paul here reveals some of the basic elements of the gospel while warning the Galatian churches they are in danger of severing themselves from Christ through this false teaching.
