God's Care: Healing and Forgiveness (#940)

God’s Care: Healing and Forgiveness (#940)
Good morning. Here we are on Resurrection Sunday, Easter Sunday, on the first of April in 2018. Last session we talked about eternal life and the resurrection and the many, many verses related to that. Today we’re going to focus on another aspect of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, which is the healing and forgiveness that was involved in that. A very important thing. As we know much of Christianity people end up being critical, judgemental, attack each other and attack everybody they don’t like and that seems to be their entire focus. You know spend a day working in Washington, DC and you’ll find that out; and it is unfortunate because the great emphasis in the scriptures is on the healing and forgiveness that comes through Jesus Christ. And you all probably heard me say this many times, but I think there is two approaches to Christianity: you either spend your time focusing on the sins of man or focus on the deliverance from sin that the lord Jesus Christ brought for us. So, we can sit around here talking about who is the greatest sinner, and who messed this up and who messed that up, and that is the great party that people like to do, they love to talk about how their group is better than another group because they don’t do these terrible, nasty, things that somebody did and that is all they focus on, or the main thing they focus on. And it ends up in political movements, it ends up in cultural movements, it ends up in them telling you and can’t talk to these people because they are weird, and it goes on and on. And oftentimes they are other Christians. But we don’t focus on that, we focus on the great deliverance that Jesus Christ provides. So, let’s go to Exodus chapter 12.
