From the Pastor

(Wk3) In the Grip of Grace

THE SINFUL MIND DISMISSES GOD!

-His COUNSEL goes… UNCONSULTED!

-His OPINION goes… UNSOLICITED!

-His PLAN goes… UNDISCOVERED!

 

Like FREE WILL-CHOICE?

Continued SINNING leads us to lose our FREEDOM NOT TO SIN!

So... Does life without God look like FREEDOM to YOU?

 

Herein lies the DESTINY OF SIN…

LEAD A GODLESS LIFE… AND YOU CAN EXPECT A GODLESS ETERNITY!

 

Take your SINS SERIOUSLY...

The ULTIMATE DISASTER would be if you LOST YOUR LIFE while still CARRYING YOUR SINS TO YOUR CASKET!!!

 

God's GRACE... ISAIAH 53:3-6

JESUS CHRIST RESPONDED TO UNIVERSAL SIN WITH A UNIVERSAL SACRIFICE!

 

Ephesians 2:4-9 - Christ's Death & Resurrection gave HOPE to a Sinful World that HEAVEN is not reserved for GOOD PEOPLE but for FORGIVEN PEOPLE!

The GRACE and TRUTH Paradox

(2) The GRACE and TRUTH Paradox

John 1:14b We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and only, who came from the Father, full of GRACE and TRUTH!

 

The conflict that exists between GRACE & TRUTH isn’t because they’re incompatible - but rather because WE lack PERSPECTIVE to RESOLVE the PARADOX!

 

GRACE is what we RECEIVE – WHAT WE LONG FOR!
TRUTH is what WE RESPOND TO – WHAT SETS US FREE!

 

Adulterous Woman... (Grace and Truth) - Jesus gave her GRACE! He also gave her TRUTH... 'go and sin no more!' Please Note... People who are FULL OF GRACE don’t throw stones at others!

 

GOD is the ONE who GIVES YOU GRACE (FORGIVENESS) and then He SHOWS YOU THE TRUTH (HOW YOU SHOULD LIVE THERE ON)!

 

Ever heard it said...
"HATE THE SIN - LOVE THE SINNER" (Jesus did this well!)

 

Note to yourself...
-TRUTH HATES SIN!
-GRACE LOVES SINNERS!
-THOSE FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH… DO BOTH!!!

 

Don't Miss WEEK 2 of GRACE this week!!!
