Series: Change My Mind
Change My Mind: Distorted
April 25, 2021 | John Durham
Passage: Romans 1:21-25
EVERY STEP TOWARD GODLINESS AND EVERY STEP TOWARD SIN BEGINS WITH A THOUGHT.
THERE’S GREATER VICTORY IN MOVING FROM “THINK/DO” TO “THINK/STOP/DO OR DON’T DO”
2 COR 10:5, We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.
ROMANS 1:21-25 See the progression here: DISTORTED WORSHIP LEADS TO DISTORTED THINKING WHICH LEADS TO DISTORTED PASSIONS WHICH LEADS TO DISTORTED LIVING.
DISTORTED WORSHIP = - SMALL VIEW OF GOD, 21 did not honor Him as God. - UNGRATEFUL HEART 21 did not give thanks to Him. 28 they did not see fit to acknowledge God. - FLIPPED FOCUS 25 they worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator. V23
V21DISTORTED WORSHIP LEADS TO DISTORTED THINKING, Futile in their thinking. 22 claiming to be wise they become fools
DISTORTED THINKING IS:
- I CAN LIVE WITHOUT GOD. - I CAN LIVE WITH NO CONSEQUENCES. - GOD IS UNCONCERNED WITH MY PURITY AND MY BODY.
DISTORTED WORSHIP LEADS TO DISTORTED THINKING WHICH LEADS TO DISTORTED PASSIONS we will do what our heart wants us to do!
DISTORTED WORSHIP LEADS TO DISTORTED THINKING WHICH LEADS TO DISTORTED PASSIONS WHICH LEADS TO DISTORTED LIVING
24: the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves.
Our mind is a battleground when it comes to our faith. Every step toward Godliness and every step toward sin begins with a thought. Join us in this six week series as we seek to change our minds towards God.
