God Judges Sin

 

In week three (Nov. 18) of our Bigger and Better Series at the Soul Garage we are reflecting on the wrath and judgment of God.

We don’t like to talk about this aspect of God, but God is not only a God who is Great and Holy, but He is also a God who judges sin!  Because of God’s utter holiness, He cannot and will not tolerate sin, even in the smallest degree.  Sin demands judgment.  We too often emphasize character traits of God that make us feel good and comfort us, such as his love and compassion and his slowness to anger and his mercy and grace.  However, it is vitally important that we understand God is also a God of wrath and justice and judgment.  He punishes sin and expects His followers to take sin seriously, otherwise there will certainly be grave consequences as there were for Korah, Dathan & Abiram in Numbers 16.

May we be people who take sin in our lives seriously and are quick to repent and confess our sins to God who promises in 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

GOSPEL Series: Part 2

small sins have big consequences

On Wednesday, September 23rd we will continue our GOSPEL Series by reflecting on the consequence of sin.  We will be exploring the question: “What’s the big deal about sin anyway?”

This week’s message: Our sins separate us from Him.

Last week’s message: God created us to be in a relationship with Him

If you missed it or just want to watch it again, check out the Skit Guys Video from last week below called God’s Chisel Remastered.  You can purchase your own copy at skitguys.com  I would encourage you to watch it every day for a week or more until you begin to truly believe that you were created on purpose for a purpose, created in the image of God, created to be in a relationship with God, not pursuing the things of this world.

Reminder that Fall Retreat numbers are being finalized this week.

Reminder that Saturday is the Pregnancy Help Center Bike for Life event at the Fairgrounds.  Grab your bike and come ride with me around the track and check out the silent auction items.
