You Broke the Whole Thing: James 2:8-13 May 5 AM

One Problem, One Solution

Consider Sins (use Galatians 5, Revelations 22 for lists)

Galatians 5:19–21

19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,

20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,

21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 22:15

15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

Sin has costs:

1. Emotional

2. Societal

3. Spiritual

4. Physical

5. Eternal

There is but one solution

It is not: to act like there are no sins anymore

It is not: to sort out the lesser sins and ignore them

It is not: to criminalize some sin while embracing other sin

It is not: to shame sinners into self-destruction

It is:

The Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

The surrender of our destroyed lives

The presence of the Holy Spirit

The imputation of righteousness

The freedom of our will to follow

The whole thing is broken: all the Law, all of life,

Assurance: Romans 8:15-16 May 5 PM

1. Baptists are known for "once saved, always saved"

2. What does this mean?

     A. Saved by God

     B. Maintained by God

     C. Sustained by God

3. Hold to the assurance of salvation:

     A. For eternity

     B. Out of love

     C. Not out of obligation (Remarkable love of God, that honors obligation without acting only out of obligation)

     D. God does nothing that He does not desire to do: His love for you, His salvation is because of His choice of you.

     E. Therefore, rest in the stability of that love:

          I. You cannot earn it

          II. You cannot lose it

          III. You cannot improve on it

          IV. You cannot do enough to deserve it

          V. You can only live in light of it
