    Morning Service – Do Over Days
    Series: Do Over Days
    Do Over Days 1. God is willing and ready to forgive all of our sin. 1 John 1:8-9 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2. Nothing in our past needs to be wasted. It was used to shape who we are - good and bad. 3. God is more concerned about where we are and where we are going then he is about where we've come from. COMPARISON ROBS OUR JOY! 4. Every person comes to the cross the same way - a lost sinner in desperate need of a Savior. John 8:36 (KJV) If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV) Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
