WHEN BELIEVERS SIN
Hebrews 10:26 &27&29
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries;
V29 of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy to receive, who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
If you know the truth it makes you free. If you deny the truth and disobey the commandments of the Lord – you are willfully sinning.
WHEN WE WILFULLY SIN..
WE TRAMPLE THE SAVIOUR UNDERFOOT
When we walk in humility we exalt Jesus our saviour.
When we walk in pride and exalt ourselves – we trample our saviour under our feet.
WE DISRESPECT THE BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT
The blood of Jesus is our only way into the presence and promises of God.
When we demean the great sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for us – we disrespect His New Covenant.
WE INSULT THE SPIRIT OF GRACE
Wow – to insult and grieve the work of the Holy Spirit is a big deal. We must honour the Holy Spirit who brings the fulness of grace into our lives.
EXALT THE LORD
GLORY IN HIS FINISHED WORK
HONOUR THE HOLY SPIRIT
