Do you like the religious/ascendancy project?

_

Many do.

_

If you do, there’s probably not a lot to sway you from that course.  At least for the time being.

But if you see yourself starting to despair a bit because you just can’t quite cut the mustard in keeping up with all that you should be doing, and or you are still doing those things that you know you shouldn’t be doing…or you are starting to notice (in your most honest moments and reflections) that you might be becoming a bit prideful, because you delude yourself into believing that you really aren’t doing so badly at all this ‘Christian progression/self-sanctification’ stuff….then maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. Great sermon for a Monday morning. Thanks for posting.

  2. A pleasure, Matt.

    I think any word that will knock us off that “ladder”, and bring us back to Christ alone…and what He has done, is doing, and will yet do…for us…is a good word…any day of the week.

  3. When we do fall into a sin it is not only important that we admit it, confess it to God through Christ (1 Jn. 1:9; 2:1) and repent of it, we also must denounce it, hate it and analyze how and why we failed. If there is something that we are doing that is contributing to failure such as going to a certain place, meeting with a certain person or watching a particular show then we must make sure we do not make the same mistake twice.
