What to do with Sin – 3 – Move Forward with Grace

We have been talking about forgiveness and it is a double-edged sword that we must be so careful in wielding. Forgiveness can save us, or it can condemn us! We love to plead for the grace, mercy, and forgiveness of Christ, but it is perhaps the most difficult thing we will ever be called to do in this life is to freely offer grace, mercy and forgiveness to someone who has sinned against us. And as we talked about last week, if we deny those who have sinned against us the forgiveness that Christ calls us to give, then we deny the forgiveness of Christ in our own sins. It is a very hard thing to navigate and work through!
So, let’s give everyone here the benefit of the doubt. Let’s say that on April 7th, every person here that had sin in their life confessed it to the Lord, repented of it, and genuinely is trying to live apart from sin. And let’s just say that last week, everyone here truly cried out to God and asked for God to help them get to the point where they can begin to forgive someone who has sinned against them. Now what?
The truth is that through the power of the HS we must move forward with grace. Well that sounds good Pastor, but what exactly does that mean? This morning, I want to share an amazing passage of scripture with you as we teach on moving forward with grace. Turn with me to…

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 2:5-11

Points:
1. There always has been and always will be sin in the church!
2. But sin must be opposed!
– Galatians 6:1-2
– Matthew 18:15
3. Refusing forgiveness gives Satan a foothold!

Ending:

Grace is a must. Moving forward is a must. You can’t cling to the past. Everything we do is a testimony of what Christ has done in us! And everyone is watching. Everyone is witnessing what’s going to happen if they sin. We are testifying about Christ with every word and every action towards others.
