THE LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER THAT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE - How Living Together Before Marriage Diminishes Life After the Vows

#4 - WHY OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE - The Story of Four Christians Going to the Same Church

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Galatians 6:7-8
#4 In The Series "THE LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER THAT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE - How Living Together Before Marriage Diminishes Life After the Vows"


We sometimes sing a chorus that says because of Jesus' grace "...my sins don't matter anymore." Is that true? They're forgiven, for sure. But are they then totally insignificant? Does it matter that I ever committed them? And when you say those sins don't matter anymore do you mean the past sins or the future sins? And is it just possible that there's more of a relationship between the two than we frequently consider?


This is not a light question. And disciples of Jesus need to be able to do more than just equate the entire Christian life with the initial experience of forgiveness. Conversion is not the whole Christian experience. And what I want to explore today is how sin is experienced in different heart-types. What is the relationship between sin, forgiveness, obedience, and safety in the Christian walk? 


Of course all sin is sin. There are no innocent sins. All grieve the Holy Spirit. All damage the soul. But not all in exactly the same way.
