From the “Christmas – A Child is Born” series. Sermon 3 of 4

Mark 10:15 ESV – Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

1 John 1:9 ESV If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

What God Does

  • God removes your sin completely.

Psalm 103:12 ESV as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

  • God forgets your sin immediately.

Isaiah 43:25 ESV “I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.

**Living under grace is the life-changing, constant awareness of what I have been given in light of what I deserve.**

What Grace Does

  • Grace changes your heart’s affection.

Luke 7:44-47 ESV Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven–for she loved much.

  • Grace changes your life’s direction.

Luke 23:42-43 ESV And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
