Guilt-Free Living



Guilt-Free Living



Romans 8:1-11, Pastor Joe Friman
Message delivered May 11th, 2014 during the morning services.

Guilt is a difficult thing to live with.  Whether it be over a mistake we made, pain we've caused, or some sin we've struggled with, guilt weighs us down.  This morning we'll see how we can be set free from guilt!

  1. Jesus sets us free from sin's CONDEMNATION
    • Condemnation is a verdict of GUILT and the PENALTY that verdict demands.
    • Those who are not in CHRIST are condemned.
    • We are set free by JESUS.
  2. Jesus sets us free from sin's CONTROL.
    • The person who lives according to the flesh:
      • Minds are set on the desires of the SINFUL NATURE.
      • Attitude toward God is HOSTILE.
      • Unable to PLEASE God.
    • The person who lives according to the Spirit:
      • Minds are set on the desires of the SPIRIT.
      • Attitude toward God is RECEPTIVE.
      • Able to PLEASE God.
