Whatever Happened to Sin? Part Two

Last week Pastor Pete introduced the giving of the law from Exodus Chapter 19:1-20:2. The way the law of God was given is just as important as the law itself. We need a proper fear of God again within our churches and within our own personal lives. In this week's message we will hear the moral law itself and answer three relevant questions for each of the ten commandments: 1.) What is the meaning of this law? 2.) What happens if we break this law? 3.) What are the blessings if we walk in the Spirit seeking to keep this law? Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE! This service is dedicated to the memory of Josh Seibert, fine Christian man, fearless preacher of the gospel and defender of the faith.

“Whatever Happened to Sin?”

The Moral Law of God (The Ten Commandments) was never intended to be ten suggestions. God is holy, just and good just as His Word and just as His law is holy, just and good. The laws of God illustrate the character and holiness of God. To break the law is to offend the very Person of God Himself. So then, how do we approach a holy, perfect and Sovereign God? This message, from Pastor Pete is taken primarily from Romans 7:13 and Exodus 19: Within these two chapters we gain insight into the giving and receiving of the law to Moses and to the children of Israel. Their initial response and attitude in receiving the law of God should be a great example to us of what God expects of us and from us today. "Whatever Happened to Sin?" Part One. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



“What Shall We Say Then”

Unfortunately, much confusion exists inside and outside of the church today on the subject of the Law of God and its purpose to reveal, provoke, lead and settle its holy, righteous and perfect purpose. The Apostle Paul, in Romans 7:7-12, leads his readers to a thoughtful conclusion as to the Law of God and its purpose in our lives. "What Shall We Say Then?" - (Is the Law, SIN?) Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



Dead to the Law but Alive to Christ – Part Two



Dead to the Law but Alive to Christ

After being away from our Romans study for a few months we are back with this week's message covering Romans 7:1-6. "Dead the the Law but Alive to Christ!" (Married? YES, But to Which Husband?) 1. We have been released from the law (Romans 7:1-3) The Old Law and Old Marriage) 2. We have been joined to Christ! Romans 7:4-6 (The New Liberty and New Marriage) We have a new freedom, a new family, a new fruitfulness and a new life in Christ! Let's bring this home as we listen for Life!

Do the Needful SOUL WORK

Over the last number of weeks we've been going through the Book of Romans line by line, word by word, precept by precept. The practical application sometimes gets lost in the overwhelming avalanche of Biblical truths and life principles. In this week's lesson we take a brief departure from the Book of Romans to do a physical and spiritual check-up to see what adjustments need to be made to our diet and overall health, both physically and spiritually. Our souls, our bodies, our hearts, our lives and minds matter to God and should to us as well. "Doing the Needful Soul Work" What story will our physical and spiritual check-ups tell us as the Body of Christ? Soul Sickness is curable if we are willing to take the right medicines. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



“Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice” Part Three

Not all slavery is bad. Now there's a controversial statement! The Apostle Paul referred to himself as the writer of Scripture in many of his New Testament books as a slave of Jesus Christ. Romans chapter 6: suggests we are either a slave of Satan and of sin or we are a slave of righteousness and of God as our Master and LORD. We have already been given victory over sin. Claiming it, living in it, choosing to experience it is something else entirely. The old illustration of Fact: the Steam Engine, Faith: the Coal Car and Feeling: the Caboose serves as an excellent reminder of how we must choose to Know the Truth, Reckon it to be fact by faith and then to choose to yield our feelings and members to the truth by faith. When we climb out of the caboose of feelings and into the engine of faith we begin to see spiritual progress as we collect momentum in our life of faith. This week's message is part three in "Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice" (The Doctrine of Sanctification in Practice - YIELD) Romans 6:15-23 Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice Part Two

This week's message from the heart of God is: "Putting Sin to Death: From Principle to Practice" (The Doctrine of Sanctification in Practice - RECKON) From Romans 6:18,19. This message from Pastor Pete is the nuts and bolts of putting sin to death in our practice. We may know what's right and even believe what's right but how do we practically put sin to death in our practice. Perfect makes practice! Listen for Life as we Bring it Home!

“Putting Sin to Death: From Principle to Practice”

Most everyone has an excuse for their behavior. What's yours? Honestly, we have no excuse. Our sin lies at our own front door. We have no one else to blame but ourselves and our fallen, depraved human nature. Good News: We can have victory over our sin! The victory can only come through Christ's death, burial and resurrection. If we are IN CHRIST we have already been given the victory over our sin and the power of Satan and death. We must know the truth, reckon it to be fact and by faith yield ourselves to what God, in Christ Jesus, has already accomplished on the cross of Calvary. This is Good News Indeed for every true believer in Christ. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



What Shall We Say Then?

Can you honestly say, like the Apostle Paul said, "I am the Chief of Sinners!?" Sin, like a cancer never stays isolated in one place, it's nature is to grow, spread and infect the entire body. How does a true believer who hates his or her sin gain the victory so desperately longed for? How can the cancer of sin be cut out once and for all? The key to spiritual victory is found in Romans 6: 7: and 8: Within these three amazing chapters we see the Doctrine of Sanctification: becoming like the Lord Jesus Christ thoroughly explained. This message serves as an overview of chapter 6: "What Shall We Say Then?" (Putting Sin to Death from Principle to Practice) Romans 6:1-23 Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!
