Sermons about Sin

Forgiven of a Debt You Could Never Pay

Date: July 17, 2011 | Speaker:

If you were in debt for a billion dollars, imagine how grateful you would feel if someone paid it for you, especially if you had done nothing to deserve such kindness! The truth is, that debt is small compared to the debt we really do owe. Our sin has put us under a debt we can never pay, but because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, all who trust Him by faith will be forgiven! Has the magnitude of just how much you’ve been forgiven of ever dawned upon you?

The Father’s Love for Lost Causes

Date: June 19, 2011 | Speaker:

The parable of the Prodigal Son is not really about the son at all. Jesus told this parable for one reason… to show us His Father’s amazing love for the lost. The prodigal son never expected to be welcomed home again, and he was surprised when he saw his father running to kiss him and receive him with open arms. Above all, this is a story of God’s amazing love for “lost causes.” For anyone who has strayed away from their heavenly Father, know that He longs for you to come home!

The Greatest Sacrifice

Date: May 29, 2011 | Speaker:

As Americans, we observe Memorial Day to honor and remember those who have given their lives for our freedom. But may we never forget that the greatest sacrifice ever made was when Jesus willingly bore our sin and died on the cross to purchase our freedom. For us, every day should be a “Memorial Day” as we honor and remember our Savior for shedding His innocent blood to save us!

What Kind of Baggage Are You Passing Down?

Date: May 22, 2011 | Speaker:

The power that parents have to shape and influence their children for a lifetime is astounding. While our parents pass down many good things to us, they also pass down a certain amount of baggage, which, if not dealt with, will be carried through our entire life and passed on to our children. Are there any hurts or destructive patterns you are still carrying through life? Jesus invites you to lay that baggage down at the cross and find the strength to be the agent of change for your family.

Self in the Dirt: A Picture of Repentance, Part 2

Date: March 6, 2011 | Speaker:

The Bible says that our lives must bear fruit that gives evidence of our repentance, but in order for fruit to grow, God must prune away any areas that are not of Him. This process is often painful, but in the end, it is the only thing that brings true life and true joy! What areas of your life are you holding back and not allowing God to trim away? Surrender yourself to His skillful hands and allow Him to shape you into the image of His Son.

Self in the Dirt: A Picture of Repentance, Part 1

Date: February 27, 2011 | Speaker:

When you hear the word “repent,” who do you think of? Is there a person or a group of people who, in your mind, are doing something terribly sinful of which they need to repent? It is so easy for us to point a guilty finger at others, while completely overlooking our own need to humble ourselves before God and repent of the things in our life that are breaking His heart. Repentance always comes before revival. Are we willing to turn from whatever wrongs God wants to reveal to us… including the subtle sin of indifference?

Sin in the Mirror: A Picture of Brokenness, Part 2

Date: February 20, 2011 | Speaker:

What do you do when you look in the mirror and see that your hair or makeup is out of place? Do you walk away and forget about it, or do you stop and fix it? When the mirror of God’s Word reveals sin in our life, we have the same choice… we can walk away and ignore it, or we can become broken over it and allow God to cleanse us. Today we look at one person who covered over his sin, and the consequences that followed, and we look at another person who became broken over his sin, and how God’s mercy and healing flowed into his life.

Sin in the Mirror: A Picture of Brokenness, Part 1

Date: February 13, 2011 | Speaker:

We usually don’t have trouble seeing sin in the newspaper or sin in the neighborhood, but we’re not so good at seeing sin in the mirror. God longs to bring revival to our hearts, but sin is the one thing keeping that from happening. The Bible says our sins have separated us from God and hidden his face from us. Once we see how our sin breaks God’s heart, we will never look at it the same way again.

The Price Jesus Paid for Our Freedom

Date: July 4, 2010 | Speaker:

As we celebrate our freedom as Americans, we remember those who have paid the price to keep us free. But how often do we celebrate the freedom we have been given through the blood that Jesus shed on the cross when He gave His life for us? He paid the ultimate price to set us free, and we owe Him a lifetime of gratitude and faithful service!

Dealing With Your Past

Date: October 25, 2009 | Speaker:

Far too many people who get married and have children, try to build their family on the shaky, cracked foundations of their past. But just as no building can stand tall and strong if built on a broken foundation, so no marriage will ever stand strong if problems from your past are not first dealt with. The Bible says if we hide our sins we will not prosper, but if we confess and forsake them, we will find mercy. Are there any areas of “rust” in your past that you have chosen to just paint over instead of dealing with? Rust will always eventually show through the paint! God calls us to deal with our past so that we can build a strong family on a clean, solid foundation.
