“Flesh & Forgiveness” pastor Loran Livingston, October 21, 2018 8:30 service
Galatians 5: 19-21 describes clearly the works of the flesh. As long as we live in these mortal bodies- we will struggle with sin. But as the children of God we grow daily in God’s grace. And though nothing good dwells in us ( Romans 7: 17-18), as God’s children all we can do is to live by faith. Because it is written that ” There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” ( Romans 8:5-6). Righteousness is a gift of God – it is not something we earn. We just have to acknowledge our sins and repent before the Lord. It is written in Colossians 2:13-14 God has forgiven us all trespasses by nailing our sins to the cross. Praise God for His grace and His Heavenly Father’s love to us all! Our God is a Great God!
