Sermon Notes

So yesterday was our usual Sunday church and I learnt a lesson- I laughed to myself as the pastor was in his 20s and was the stereotype of how a comedy would potray a trendy pastor to be- but little did I know he delivered one of the best sermons this church has done in ages- don't assume!

The Notes:

. The heart= When the Bible mentions it, it is usually reffering to the spiritual sense of who we are

. As Christians it's about the inward, not about the outward like it was for the Pharisees.

. So much misconceptions about Christianity- "Just do more good than bad" No, only saving faith in Christ saves us!

. A great analogy of sin- like a nice refreshing glass of orange juice on a summer's day- with a dash of lethal poison inside!

. Don't do what many do and dip their toe in sin "I'll just do that" "How much like the world can I be?"

. The pastor used the best analogy of being saved I ever heard from the hymn And can it be-

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night;
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free;
I rose, went forth and followed Thee

. Noone can snatch us from God's hand!

So yes, an amazing sermon about our lifelong struggle with sin and at the end with our diverse congregation, it really helped me view peope from all nations in the New Earth!

As for Charles Wesley's hymn.....

Really, really beautiful thoughts (and the image!)
@Persephonee Thanks so much for the appreciation, I enjoy sharing notes from sermons and bible studies in bite size chunks to hopefully inspire others here!

I loved the dungeon analogy from the Charles Wesley hymn as I was brought up in a secular household and can confirm that is such an accurate analogy about the feeling of when we get saved!

You're most welcome. ♥️

Billings is my favorite composer of hymns and anthems.
@Thinkerbell Born half blind and with uneven legs, and he still made hymns like this, what an inspiration!

@LadyGrace It was amazing and I learnt a valuable lesson about assuming!
