You Can… Stop Sinning (8-13-17)

DO YOU LIKE EVERYTHING YOU SEE IN YOURSELF?

I REALLY DON’T WANT TO BE THIS WAY!

BUT I CAN’T STOP!

CAN I?

HOW CAN I?

Romans 13:14 – Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

STEP 1 – RIGHT THINKING

DISOWN SELF-EFFORT.

TRUST ONLY GOD!

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOUR SIN NATURE.

SHOW DISGUST FOR SIN.

“YOU WHO LOVE THE LORD, HATE EVIL!”  –  Psalm 97:10

DAVID CUT OFF THE ENEMY’S HEAD!  I Samuel 17:51

STEP 2 – RIGHT TURNING

TURN FROM SIN.

“TURN AWAY” – Proverbs 4:13-15

“FLEE” – I Cor. 6:18, 10:14, I Tim. 6:11, II Tim. 2:22, James 4:7

TURN TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.

MAKE THE CHANGE BY RENEWING YOUR MIND.  Romans 12:1-2

MAKE THE CHANGE BY REPLACING WRONG WITH RIGHT.  Ephesians 4:25-32

ACT RIGHT . . EVERY TIME.  MAKE IT A HABIT.
