Five things we should be willing to say when appropriate.
1. I am sorry
James 5:16 – “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
2. I was wrong
1 John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us fromall unrighteousness."
Christianity is a more than a religion of “thou shall not” it is also a religion “do.” There is a children’s song that we sing “Be careful little eyes.” We all need to be reminded NOT do certain things and to NOT go certain places. We might stress to a young toddler no, no! But as he gets older he needs to be taught some things to DO. Christianity is PROACTIVE.
If you had the pulpit what would you preach? Many believe that their hobby should be preached nine out of every ten sermons. For one it is hell, another God’s abundant grace, others would say, divorce, lying, baptism, love, the church, forgiveness etc. If we’re not careful we might think that our limited understanding or worse our-selfish desires should determine the content of the pulpit. That can be a preacher’s nightmare. The good news is that neither you nor I have a right to “control” the pulpit. Here are ten sermons Jesus would definitely preach.
