THE POWER OF A CLEAN SLATE
Pastor Steve Lummer
Easter Sunday 2014
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. Romans 8:11 NIV
The Power of Memory
John 18:18 Now the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed himself.
John 18:27 Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed.
1. He replaces GUILT with GRACE.
Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
2. He reconditions FEAR with FAITH!
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
3. He rewires our FUTURE , by forgiving our PAST.
John 18 Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, “You are not also one of this Man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.” 18 Now the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed himself.
Don’t confuse a SINGLE mistake with a FINAL mistake.
John 21:9 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there,….10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.”
