October 14, 2018 - Following Jesus Will Kill You (Pastor Dave Barber)

The Psalms are filled with heartfelt expressions of the battle between David's fallen soul and the Spirit of God. In this message we look at how our emotions flow from our sin-stained souls. This doesn't mean that feelings are sin, they are not, only that they flow from a damaged and insecure soul. This message will give you some practical ways to address anxiety, fear, worry, and panic.

What does Paul mean when he says, "If I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it?"  Is this the lamest excuse in the book, or was he saying something else.  In this second part of sermons on Romans 7 we will see what Paul was saying and explore the new crucified life, and the residual indwelling sin.

In this message Paul begins to describe the battle that wages war inside of all believers. He explains that the law is good, but we are not.  You may find it odd, but the understanding that the law is good and the acute awareness that we are not righteous is a sign that we are Christians. In this message Pastor Dave also takes time to explain how we interpret Scripture and why it's important.

Why did Jesus have to die? This is an important question to answer.  Although justice is a difficult concept the Scriptures are clear that God has assigned the wage of sin and then paid that wage through Jesus. We then have the privilege of proclaiming a crucified Savior who initiates our reconciliation, pays our debt, and forgives us.

Anxiety is the thief of awe. Anxiety causes us to focus primarily on our circumstances, and not focus on the things God has put around us to remind us of His glory. So how can we handle anxiety biblically? What kinds of things can we set our minds on to help us remember our awesome God? All of the means for our victory over the worries of life are rooted in a proper awe of our God.

The end of Hebrews chapter 12 is one last comparison between the old covenant and the new one. The author explains the differences by comparing two mountains, Mount Sinai and Mount Zion.  One is terrifying, separate, and unapproachable. The other is inviting, filled with celebration, and grace. Then the author gives the final warning that you should not ignore this invitation.
