2011-08-28-0830 Pastor Loran Livingston is the speaker this morning August 28th 2011 in the 8:30 service.

Scripture: I John 1:8-10; 2:1-2

Topic: Sin


- Sin is why Christ died; man disobeyed God, trying to draw life from something other than God and man’s spirit died
- Emotions and feelings now control man; the human race is confused & twisted
- On the cross God reconciled man to God; we are new creations, living by the Spirit and in the sanctifying process
- Eternal salvation: He started it and He will finish it; your condemnation is removed forever but temptation remains
- Example: hurricane Irene... power and dominion (of sin) gone but influence remains
- Temptation is a proof that I am saved; it’s not my fault that I’m tempted but I have the power to not give in
- Some think they don’t sin... thinking of sins of commission (obvious sins), but sins of omission remain, not doing the good we know to do
- Not praying for our President and other authoritative leaders is a sin of omission
- When you sin, don’t stare at it; it came out of your heart but don’t grieve too long over it; run to Jesus
- The enemy wants to keep you from God’s forgiveness as long as possible; the longer you wait, the longer your relationship with Jesus will be disrupted and disturbed
