This is a short 20 minute challenge I preached to the students at DCA today. If you have a few minutes please listen to it. I have also put below here the handout I refer to in the sermon for your benefit.

Disclaimer: I have a cold and I only had a 2 days to prepare for this because I was filling in for another teacher. But I trust it will still be a blessing to whomever hears it.

Sermon handout by Jordan Moody adapted from The Cross Centered Life by C. J. Mahaney

“Unloading Condemnation: How the Cross Removes Guilt and Shame” (Chapter 4)

  1. Check your bags
    • Our bags are the burdens we carry with us
    • Condemnation may show itself in grief, guilt, self-denial, regret.
    • Without Jesus condemnation is normal and we deserve to be punished for it.
  2. Low-Grade Guilt
    • Are you more aware of your sin than you are of God’s grace, given you through the cross?
    • “Don’t buy the lie that cultivating condemnation and wallowing in your shame is somehow pleasing to God, or that a constant, low-grade guilt will somehow promote holiness and spiritual maturity.”
  3. An Uninvited Guest
    • Luke 7:36-50
  4. Our Many Sins
    • Though our sins may be like scarlet they are made white as snow.
    • Her guilt is gone. She loves much because she’s been forgiven much.
  5. Lose your luggage and beat condemnation
    • Confess your sin to God.
    • Then believe in Him.
    • Don’t be paralyzed by condemnation but rather exalt God’s grace over your condemnation.
