The Great Contrast: The Intense Hatred of God Against Sin and the Immense Love of God Toward Sinners

This morning we enter a new chapter of the Book of Revelation. As you open with me to Revelation 7, let me explain what lies before us.

If we were doing a one-phrase-summary of each chapter of the Bible, we could summarize the main idea of Revelation 6 as: The Intense Wrath of God Against Sin.

If we did the same for Revelation 7 it would be: The Immense Love of God Towards Sinners. Back to back those seem to be polar opposites.  What is amazing is that God designed this incredible contrast.

Confessing Sin, the Fall, Worship, Is Mormonism a Cult & Did Paul Add to God’s Word

Questions answered:

What is the context of confessing our sins to one another in James 5:16? 

What did Paul mean in saying “I, not the Lord, say” in 1 Corinthians 7:12? 

How long was the period of time between Creation in Genesis 1 and the Fall in Genesis 3? 

Is our worship only supposed to be on Sundays? 

Does Billy Graham condone Mormonism? Is Mormonism a cult or a part of Christianity?

How Does God Remove Our Sin?

/ The Life of David

The first observation a student studying God’s Word would make in Psalm 32 is that David is so thankful for his sin being forgiven, that he uses four different Hebrew words to describe the depths God had to go to accomplish his forgiveness in just the first two verses. Note those with me as we open to Psalm 32:

Psalm 32:1-2 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. NKJV

That is one happy man to declare the amazing depth of his forgiveness in every way possible.

Bathsheba, Pornography’s Mind: Addicting Power and the Miracle of Forgiveness

/ The Life of David

We have gathered to celebrate the greatest possession we have as fallen and sinful humans. The God of the Universe so loved us that He sent His Son to set us free, wash us and remove the eternally destructive sins we were born with by nature and have practiced by choice. John writes about this incredible gift in the opening verses of Revelation:

Revelation 1:5 (NKJV) “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed [freed, loosed] us from our sins in His own blood”

We are loved, loosed from our sins, and washed. That is the Gospel truth, but sometimes we don’t act like we are. As we open to Psalm 32:1-2, think with me:

In the back of your mind, have you ever wondered whether it’s even possible to be completely forgiven and cleansed of all your sins? What about truly bad ones that have been hidden from nearly everyone who knows you?

The Deadly Results of Rationalizing Sin

/ The Life of David

Most spectacular sins are like most flat tires: they are not usually caused by a loud pop of a blow out, rather, they are almost always the result of a slow leak. The long-term effect of small rationalizations, of small disobediences, or small neglects can after time snowball into immensely destructive activity. That is what we see in David’s life:

Beware of the Slow Leaks In Your Spiritual Life

Jesus said that when we are faithful in little things it shows that we will be worthy of great things. Look atLuke 16:10:

He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.

David’s Lust Led Him to Break ALL of the Ten Commandments

As we open to 2 Samuel 12, try to think of the searing pain that would come when secret, private sins get exposed for all the world to see. Just imagine what David felt as the truth of what he had done could no longer be hidden. That is the event and those are the emotions that David is feeling in the verses of this chapter.

One of the great deterrents to sin is looking at the consequences. God’s Word records David’s crash through each barrier God put in his way, and the resulting wreck David made of his life and family. For a moment join me in that climactic moment as David faces his sin is a most uncomfortable moment. Please read the first 15 verses of 2 Samuel 12:

The Deadening Effects of Intentional Sin

Tagged With: / The Life of David

All that really matters in life may be reduced to one simple reality–what does God think of what I am doing or have done[1]?

As we open in our Bibles to the last sentence of II Samuel 11:27, and read those words that is exactly the perspective God has of David’s life at that moment.

Only Two Choices: Please God or Self

Our lives can be focused by one simple truth: am I pleasing or displeasing God? All that mattered at that moment and for eternity is what God thought of what David had done. And David did not please the Lord!

The Wonderful Effects of Confessing & Forsaking Sin

/ The Life of David

Psalm 32 will forever be recorded in Heaven as a song about the day David’s soul was set free from the prison house of guilt and anguish over his un-confessed and un-forsaken sin.

As we open to this Psalm, imagine with me the events surrounding the day that David was finally set free from his emotional bondage. Here are his words that overflowed from the depths of his soul:

Psalm 32:1-2

1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,

         Whose sin is covered.

 2 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity,

         And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

The Lust of Sin & David’s Worst Moment

Tagged With: / The Life of David

As we open to 2 Samuel 11, David has finally made it to the top. Giants are killed, enemies are dead, life on the run is over, and normal life has finally started for David. As we will see, it is precisely when things are going “great” that we face some of the most lethal spiritual pathogens.

We are lulled into thinking we don’t quite need the Lord as much as: when we were sick; or when we were single; or when we were unemployed; or when we were under attack. Most people think wouldn’t it be nice to succeed, to make it, to win the lottery of life and have everything you’ve ever wanted. Actually, if you do a scientific study of those who have “made” it, most wish they hadn’t. Many find that great success often ruins their lives.
