Sermon Notes

As Christians we should well understand how Christ’s work on the cross covers our guilt.  We are freed from the guilt and shame that comes from our sinful actions because of what Christ has done for us.  That’s good news!  But have you ever thought that the same applies to our pride?  Christ’s work on the cross covers our pride too!  What does that mean?  It means that guilt and pride are two sides of the same coin.  Both say “look at me, and what I have done.”  The only difference is that guilt is burdened over the bad that we’ve done, but pride is puffed up over the good that we’ve done.  Today we will look at the true value of our accomplishments.  Paul says that for him they are garbage.
