The Most Expensive Things In The WorldDr. Warren W. Wiersbe | March 21, 1976
Selected highlights from this sermon
Our lives are so valuable in the eyes of God that He sent His Son to die for us. Whenever we are tempted to sin, stop and remember the life we have in Christ and how much that life cost Him. Pastor Wiersbe describes the many costs that come with sin and reminds us of God’s great grace.
Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message
Man is a priceless creature in the eyes of God.
Our lives are so valuable that Jesus died for us.
Whenever we are tempted to sin, stop and remember the life we have in Christ and how much that life cost Him.
Three prices that are paid in our lives because of sin:
- The high cost of committing sin
- The consequences of David’s sin were tragic.
- Sin affected David’s eyes, mind, ears, and heart.
- Unconfessed sin caused David to lose his fellowship, joy, and testimony.
- David had to pay for his sins.
- The high cost of confessing sin
- David confessed his sin because he knew he was a sinner, not because he got caught.
- David admitted who he was and what he had done.
- A broken heart before God over our sin is equivalent to all the sacrifices we could bring.
- The high cost of cleansing sin
- The cleansing of our sin is free to us but came at a great cost to God.
- When we sin, it hurts
- God gave up His son to pay for our sin.
The Lord has put away our sin, washed us clean.
God took David’s sins and used them for His good.
Where sin abounds, grace abounds more.
Grace is not an excuse for sin, but it means that we do not need to fear when we come to the Lord and confess our sins.
