Stories: Do Over
Jesus has already paid the debt for everything you have ever done wrong, doing wrong now, or will do. Receive his forgiveness and STOP TRYING TO PAY THE DEBT YOURSELF. Christian Hosoi is a great example of this!
The Cure: EasterThis same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace….Colossians 1:6 (NLT)
Here at PC3, we believe that all true sustainable spiritual life-change has its roots in the story we are here celebrating today. The Easter story. A story of death, burial and resurrection.
The Cure: Two Destinies
Jesus came up with the perfect concept for flawed people (us=sinners). We must learn to live in the Room of Grace which will lead us to the destiny Jesus has or us as individuals and as a church.
We do this by being willing to change. Change is hard, but change is often simple.
The Cure: Two Friends
Jesus cancelled our debt. This freedom comes thru CONFESSION, FORGIVENESS, and CELEBRATING others.
Colossians 3:13 “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
The Cure: Two Healings
The journey to freedom is learning to receive forgiveness and then to pass that forgiveness on to other people. The whole grace, God-thing is really about us giving up control of our lives and trusting God to love us and forgive us based on what He has already done for us.
The Cure: Two Solutions
God’s entire story with humanity is one of grace and forgiveness. This can be our story. God’s grace is enough.
God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit (Romans 8).
