Sermon Title: From Confession to Cleansing

#1

(Hosea 4-10)

Israel’s rebellion, ruin, and repentance

Tonight we are talking about Repentance (6:1–3)

#2

Why do we need to REPENT?

The Big Truth and The Big Lie: Your choice

#3

Live lies- We DO what is wrong (not truly good)

Speak lies- We SAY what is wrong (not truly good)

Believe lies- We BELIEVE what is wrong (not truly good)

Lies must be corrected!

#4

John 8:31-36

The Truth Will Set You Free

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
