Sunday Morning

I need to stop feeling sorry for myself. I need to get on my knees and pray. We should not let our failing faithfulness discourage us because God's faithfulness to us will go beyond what the most loyal being, creature and even matter on earth goes. His promises are stronger and truer than the sentence fragments I'm trying to construct on here.

{part of Sunday's Sermon from my awesome church LOGOS Community. Get complete sermon notes and others at}

1st Corinthians 6:9
Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or anyone practicing homosexuality,10 no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom. 11 And some of you used to be like this. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

- If the first part of this passage defines you, Jesus is calling you right now to confess your sins and turn away from your lifestyle. If the second part defines you, then repentance should show itself in your life. Jesus is not only Savior HE IS LORD.
Repentance from our former lives and turning to Jesus is not receiving judgment but mercy. Repentance gives life, does not take it.

Real repentance leads to life

2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly grief produces a repentance not to be regretted and leading to salvation, but worldly grief produces death.

- worldly grief, sorry I got caught - Godly grief, I’m sorry I’ve sinned against God
Real repentance removes guilt

Psalm 32:5 Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not conceal my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and You took away the guilt of my sin. Selah - God knows

Strobe Light

Another let down.
The tempter provides the trigger.
She soon hides behind dark curtains.
Creepy laughs are heard when ashes emerge.
