Upgrade To Grace

Upgrade To Grace

It is going to stay this way, unless we turn to Jesus.

2 Corinthians 3:4-8
4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory?

  • Comparison Of The Letter And Spirit
    • Letter Kills
    • The Spirit Gives Life
    • The law has a fading glory
    • The Spirit is superior
    • The Spirit surpasses
    • The Spirit’s conclusion is permanent
    • John 8
      • The Law Made It Legal To Condemn
      • But Love Found A Way To Forgive

2 Corinthians 3:12-16
12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

  • To This Day, The Same Veil Remains
    • Their Minds Were Hardened – set in our ways
    • It Is Going To Stay This Way, Unless We Turn To Jesus
      • Your son/daughter are going to likely stay this way unless you turn to Jesus
      • Your marriage is going to stay this way unless you turn to Jesus
      • Your bitterness is going to stay this way unless you turn to Jesus
      • Your insatiable lust for more is going to stay this way unless you turn to Jesus
      • Your addiction
      • Your inability to trust others
      • Your lack of mental health…prisons that have been painted in our brains that bear our that we are living in alternate reality
    • Only Jesus Can Lift The Veil Of Condemnation
    • Only Jesus Can Transform Our Hardened Hearts And Heads
      • Tap Out

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

  • It’s Time To Upgrade To Grace
    • The Veil Is Obscuring Our Opportunity To Upgrade
    • The Veil Is Blocking The Blessing Of Grace
    • The Veil Is Tempting Us To Stay With What We Know… While, Paul Is Saying, “In Christ” It’ Time To Go
      • It’s Time To Turn
      • It’s Time To Trust
      • It’s Time To Throw Yourself On His Mercy
      • It our choice
