Where Spiritual Growth Begins

Where Spiritual Growth Begins

This is a second message in a short series on spiritual growth, and what I’d like to communicate in this sermon is the importance of recognizing what sin does to us.

Notice the evocative images Paul uses in the text above: “you have died,” “put to death,” “the wrath of God is coming,” “put them all away,” etc. In other words, don’t play around with this stuff.

One reason we don’t grow as we should is that we let sin hang around as if it were no big deal. Instead of eliminating it (killing it, to use Paul’s words), we try to keep it under control, and it rewards us by stymying our growth toward Christ.
