Sobering Look at Sin
The 30 minute audio below came from Pinehurst Baptist Church in November 2017.
It is sobering and so I will merely give you the link, and below it, a few notes. Please note that when it gets a bit difficult to hear, it is because I am on my belly talking to God. This I did in front of the congregation, and would do it again if given the chance.
The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.
What’s In Your Mind When Sin is in Your Heart?
Sin’s Impact on Your Prayer Life
But the LORD was angry with me on account of you and would not listen to me. The LORD said to me, ‘That’s enough! Do not speak to Me again about this matter.
When you lift up your hands in prayer, I will refuse to look at you; even if you offer countless prayers, I will not listen. . .
But your iniquities have built barriers between you and your God, and your sins have made Him hide His face from you so that He does not listen.
41 Let us lift up our hearts and our hands
to God in heaven:
42 We have sinned and rebelled;
You have not forgiven.
43 You have covered Yourself in anger and pursued us;
You have killed without compassion.
44 You have covered Yourself with a cloud
so that no prayer can pass through.
Anyone who turns his ear away from hearing the law– even his prayer is detestable.
Cry Out for Mercy
By Praying Thru Psalm 38, then
Remember Psalm 51:17 . . .
So You Can Get to Psalm 118:19
Blessings my friends,
PS. Forgive me for “staging” the featured image above, but I searched and searched the internet and couldn’t find anyone prostrating themselves that looked remotely like they might be Baptist.
Seriously, that is where I prostrate myself before the Lord, the only thing is there is normally a cocktail table in the center of the rug, but again, this is ONLY A VISUAL.
Thank you for understanding.
