APain, Pollution & Contamination of God=s People

Jeremiah 17:9

 

The title of this sermon sounds like it=s going to be one of those condemning sermons telling me what I should not be doing in life such as:

Gal 5: 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.

Jeremiah 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.

 

Deceitful:  06121 `aqob {aw©kobe'} from 06117; TWOT - crooked 1, deceitful 1, polluted, deceitful, sly, insidious, slippery.

Desperately wicked:  0605 'anash {aw©nash'}a primitive root; TWOT - incurable, desperate, desperately wicked, woeful, sick; to be weak, frail.

You are probably saying do I need this?  Well let=s take a vote! 

How many of you need for me to stand up here and tell you that you are not to commit acts of sexual immorality, impurity, witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, nor participate in orgies. How many? Please raise your hands.

Obviously you do not need me to preach to  you with a Aslaughter the sin in your life@ sermon.

So lets look in another direction!

My hearts desire is to minister to you in a way that will set you free from the bondage of mental torment caused by the cesspool heart and minds we have.

Mark 12:30 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (KJV)

Hearts and minds that are so easily drawn to issues of life that bring us into a state of being defeated and unable to be effective for Christ. Lives full of PAIN!

All around me and where ever we go and minister there is always an overwhelming presence of un-resolved emotional pain in the hearts of the people.

Little red wagon full of junk.

Joke: AEverything is OK....

Romans 12:2 Illustration!

A2 Peter 1:4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.@

...caused by evil desires! What has been caused by evil desires. Your PAIN! My PAIN! His PAIN! Her Pain! Our PAIN!

Hosea 4:6  my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.

Knowledge: da`ath {dah'©ath}; TWOT - 848c; knowledge, know, cunning, unwittingly  ignorantly, unawares,  perception, discernment, understanding, wisdom

                                                                                                                            

But! Wait a minute. There is hope. God always provides a way of escape for his children.

Job 25  I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.  

Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

If you need peace today then come and meet Jesus at the altar.
