So tonight Dr. Van Gelderen preached on Romans chapter 7, all about us as christians saying "no" to God and "yes" our flesh.
First, the consequences:
1) There is a deadening effect spiritually, when we say no to God and yes to our flesh.
2) "sold under sin"; There is a bondage that comes when we say not to God and yes to our flesh
Second, The Silver Lining:
1) "I'm weak, and I am always weak"
2) "He [God] is strong and he will always be strong" (the answer in Romans 7:25 and Philippians 4:13)
The Point: In our weakness, to trust God in His strength.
It was a really awesome message, but I'm still sad that revival has to be over and the team has to leave. : ( Mike playing the piano was kind of like having Ryan back for a week. : )
Still, the Lord worked in hearts (mine especially) and it was amazing to see. : )
