CAGE FIGHTERS
Living a Life of Spiritual Adventure
Pastor Steve Lummer
PART 5
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8
CAGES CHRISTIANS GET LOCKED INTO
* The Cage of Responsibility—    * The Cage of Routine—    * The Cage of Assumptions—    * The Cage of Guilt—    * The Cage of Failure—    * The Cage of Fear—
Today : COMING OUT OF The cage of GUILT
Each of us have a conditioned REFLEX.
1. DON’T YOU HATE THOSE ROOSTERS?
Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter – Luke 22:54-62
Why keep beating yourself for sins God’s forgotten? “I blot out your sins for my sake & NEVER think of them again” Isa 43:25
2. THE EVIDENCE AGAINST US  WEIGHS TOO MUCH.
God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21
3. DO YOU EVER HAVE THAT SHRINKING FEELING?
Early in the morning John 21:4
Guilt has a SHRINKING effect – Grace has an EXPANDING effect
SIN – GRACE = GUILT
SIN + GRACE = GRATITUDE
