The Weight of an Unnecessary Burden

Sin is the transgression (disobedience) of the law of God and rebellion against God

Inherent Sin

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:5

Imputed Sin

Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. Romans 5:18

Personal Sin

9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:9-11

How can we have freedom from the weight of our forgiven sin?

  • Get over ourselves!
  • We must stop viewing God with a human nature.

BIG IDEA: Human forgiveness is imperfect and incomplete. God’s forgiveness is perfect and complete.
