Sons of Men
Most of us recognize the progressive nature of sin because we see it all around us in our society. Things aren't the way they used to be. This shouldn't surprise us because we see evidence of sin progressing even in the first few chapters of Scripture. But sometimes even while we admit the progressive nature of sin in others, we deny its progressiveness in ourselves. We fail to see how our looks of lust lead to immorality, how our proud hearts leave our relationships in tatters, or how our dissatisfaction leads us to covet. Sin starts small and progresses over time until it takes over our hearts and lives, that's why we need God. He gives us hope and delivers us from sin's hostile take over. May we call on the name of the Lord confessing every sin of our hearts, even the "small ones," so that they may never become the "big ones."
This Sunday at Liberty we are starting a new Sunday school curriculum as we start a four month study in the doctrines of God and the Bible. This week I will introduce the topic and talk about why we study theology. In the morning worship we are back into Genesis 1-11 and our Origins series as we look at Cain's line and sin's progression in the end of Genesis 4. In the evening worship, we will look at Psalm 119:57-64 and the benefits of keeping God's Word. I look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday. May God bless you and keep you until then!
