This Week's Sermon(s)
2009, weeks 47 & 48
How do you make up for preaching a fifty-one minute sermon? Easy--follow it up with a twenty-five minute sermon. Here are the next two messages in my series on First John:
Sinless of Sin Less? pt. 1 and Sinless or Sin Less? pt. 2 - John keeps laying on the theological tension in 1:8-2:2. To summarize,
1. If you claim fellowship with God but live a life of sin, you're lying;
2. If you claim that you live a life without sin, you're lying;
3. You should live a life without sin.
How can anyone hope to live a faithful Christian life in light of these statements? The answer is rooted, not in us, but in the cross.
