    Romans 8:5‑11

    No condemnation

    No condemnation

    It’s one of the most famous verses in the Bible: ‘There is now therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’ God has made a way, through Jesus, to condemn sin, without condemning sinners. How deep has that great gospel declaration — ‘No condemnation!’ — sunk into your heart? What would change if you really believed this truth?

    Who will rescue me from this body of death?

    The reason we can’t deal with the problem of sin on our own is that sin is “in us” — it dwells in our hearts, and gets its teeth into our flesh. We need nothing less than rescue from sin’s power.

    I will pour out my Spirit

    I will pour out my Spirit

    In the introduction to his gospel, John gives a number of reasons why Jesus came into the world. In this sermon, we pick up one of his metaphors: strangers and family. It’s a metaphor that feels relevant in a culture where we often feel like strangers from one another, and where if God exists, we definitely feel estranged from him. But Jesus comes to make strangers family, and he does it in a breathtaking way.
