A Sermon series by Servant BK Woodson, Sr. The Laws of the Good Life!
Romans 8:2 Theme Scripture:For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death
1. The Good Life must be fought for Recap: • 2. There are rules to follow to obtain the good life • 3. There is a rule for/when you break the rules • 4. If you don’t consciously decide what your highest Good is… it will be decided for you… and it won’t be about you. • 5. We can choose our authority… But we are subject to that authority once it is chosen. • 6. The question is “WILL” we trust GOD?
And God spoke all these words, saying, 2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth Exodus 20:1-6
. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Sermon 3 The First Law: God Does Not Share
The meantime can be some MEAN times 1. Most of life is lived in the meantime It is the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus that keeps us in the meantime… mean times
Holy Mount Sinai… wind whistles When Heaven is silent… we make things up… but 2. God speaks for God’s own self
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is King In the junkyard running wrecks are favored over sitting wrecks… You can make up your own rules for your life if you choose to but the consequences will be severe and eternal!
Quid Pro Quo God on God’s terms – Or no deal at all I am the Lord your God who brought you out…! We serve a If – ThenGod – Ex 19:5 We serve a This – ThereforeGod – Ex 20:2-3 We want a “Just As I Am…” religious experience… but when the question is “What can wash away my sin?” we need to know that the answer is “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus”
The Law of the spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made you free from the law of sin and death!
