Jesus & My Sin
Part four of our series: Jesus &: My World Through His Eyes
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 –
When it comes to your sin, what do you THINK?
The adulterous woman simply did not get what she deserved. She received MERCY.
Which describes you?
- You may be haunted by one big sin…the failing of a lifetime. And it won’t let you go.
- You have actually learned to entertain sin. It’s an escape. It’s something just for you. You feel guilty, but not guilty enough.
- Or perhaps it’s a matter of frequency. You want Jesus and you pursue him, but over and over and over again you fail. You hate it and you get caught again and again. You give up.
The “Two Truths and a Lie” of Mercy.Truth #1: You deserve judgment and destruction for your sin. (The teachers of the law brought a woman caught in adultery.)Truth #2: There is an accuser who exists for your condemnation. (They made her stand before the group.)The Lie: Your sin is too much for Jesus, beyond His grasp and His grace. (“In the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women…”)
