Follows You Home

screensIn the third week of this series, we focused on this line: whatever happens in Vegas, follows you home. Sin is not an isolated incident, and our sin hurts more than just ourselves. Our sin follows us home. Our sin hurts those that we love the most. Our families feel the consequences of our sin. So, what is following you home?

Today, we worshiped to:

  • Friend of God – Israel Houghton
  • Happy Day – Tim Hughes
  • I Stand in Awe – Mark Altrogge
  • My Savior’s Love – Chris Tomlin
  • How He Loves – John Mark McMillan

There were times today when I thought we had more singers on stage.  I would hear loud vocals and look around to figure out where they were coming from.  It was you.  It was the congregation singly louder that the music.  I love it – sing it out – tell Him how much you love Him!

I think Jeff made it so clear when he clarified some confusing theology out there when he said: “My wife and children and grandchildren will not have to face the curse because of my sins, but they will have to deal with the consequences of my sin.”

As Jeff taught on the story of David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11), it was such a great reminder that we are not an island.  Our sin has consequences on ourselves and on others.

We all struggle with sin.  While you should try not to sin because you don’t want to be disobedient to God, here’s another reason to keep you holy: the people you care about the most will feel the pain of your sin.

Stay holy, North Siders.  Stay holy for His sake, your sake, and their sake.
