    WHY 562 Xs Genesis 4:6-7 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” 1) An admission of wrong doing 2) A correction of behavior 3) Doing it right in the future Why a blood sacrifice? Hebrews 9:22 …without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Acts 17:30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. Romans 3:25a God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood–to be received by faith. Give ADVICE Jethro Exodus 18:9-12 (page 74) Exodus 18:13-24 Ephesians 4:11-13 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. QUESTIONING GOD Manna Num. 11:6-15 (page 144) yuck! Joshua 7 (pg 218) Why does disaster come when all seems to be going so well? 1) Admit our wrong doing 2) Correct our behavior 3) Do what is right

    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.
