Good morning. We are all sinners. It’s a statement of truth. We are all hypocrites. That’s a statement of truth and if you want to deny it – well – you crunch the numbers. Talking about crunching numbers, I’ve done a bit of that since last week’s sermon. It wasn’t a sermon I liked delivering but it certainly was a sermon we needed, yes that is ‘we’, I’m included in that number of people who have sins entwined, entangled. For those who escaped and didn’t hear it, we looked at Hebrews 12:1 let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.
To those brave, honest people who responded to the invitation to write down the sins that confront you – a big thank you for your honesty and frankness, I salute you. I hope that it has helped to front up to things that may be entangled around your heart that stops you from being as fruitful as you perhaps should be. We are called to be people of faith so we need to take this seriously. What you probably weren’t aware of was that I have used the data collected, crunched the numbers, and come up with a list of sins that we as a church are ‘good’ at! We shouldn’t be but we are! What are we going to do with this list? Well it is the preaching plan for after Easter and you’ve dictated what we are going to look at. I feel that God is asking us to seriously deal with our sins that entangle so that we can move into freedom and liberty! Every second week, after Easter, someone will be presenting one of our ‘sins’ and we are going to face up to them, repent, be healed, be humbled, be prayed for and pray for others. Chaahoooo! Serious Christianity! Every alternate week we will be looking at some practical aspects of pronouncing the kingdom through sign word and deed! Chaahoooo!
