No Condemnation to Those Who Are in Christ Jesus

Wednesday April 7, 2010

John 8:1-11; Rom. 3:9-11; Rom. 8:1-4; I Cor. 10:13; I John 1:7-9. The love of God is unconditional, but His blessings are conditional. Pastor Dale warns of cyclical errors in the church, such as the shepherding movement and now the “greasy” grace movement. Jesus died because sin is sin. Don’t go so far that sin loses its sinfulness. The purpose of the law is to lead us to Christ, so those laws you keep and follow should be those that lead you to Christ. Jesus took the place of the woman at the well when He went to the cross. Satan wants you to feel that you’re different. A lot of winning over sin is to run, to flee from it. The law cannot keep you from sin. It’s not as much putting down the flesh as it is picking up the Holy Spirit. Walking in the Spirit is how to get holy. Make sure your heart is not hard and seared. Before Christ- how does sin affect me? After accepting Christ- how does my sin affect Him?
