More on that later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan writing my worst job as head of the household is to remove disgusting things so I go, I get a shovel I go I'm a finance will be in the corner of the sunrooms officer. Another dead chipmunk over there this putrid chipmunk and has always been there stink in the high heavens and I get the shovel on the skylight get as far away from it. Get out here and I am having the greatest difficulty of getting rid of this thing, because the dog is fighting me for the dog to come over and lick it. The dog wants to sniff it tasted invited and have had an opportunity would roll around in it. You know there been studies and they cannot figure out why is it if you want a dog and let it loose in the backyard, it will find the most foul thing in the yard and roll around in it.
What dogs want to roll around in septic water. If they can't they just we can figure it out. I watch this and all the bars.
This is probably the most disgusting smell I have ever smelled in my life and to my mind all smell pretty good.
It is something you get a sense of smell hundred times more sensitive than mine, and something in him.
He thinks it smells good and smells attractive to me.
I'm like, get away from that of the most disgusting thing in the world. We had two different natures get receipt to smell. I did chipmunk the way I smell a dead chipmunk and lessee shall become human being, smelled what he does less I become a beagle which have different natures pulsing is that before you accept Christ you're born Adam and you have Adams nature, you have a sin nature doesn't mean that everything in your life is wrong.
If you're just exploring Christianity to me that you don't do some wonderful things your life and you do just saying that it inevitably though you're going to well you're going to smell things through your sin nature. So some things that are really actually toxic and ultimately destructive might smell enticing to you but if you come to live out of a new nature then some things that might've smell enticing before disgusting to you now what Paul's saying is that the way out the life of the setting sand and dust and victory in general is not to try to go back and live out of the old nature under the law and try to be better at it and work it will take and say what. Here's the law, which with the law. The law is appealing to the old nature's attempt to be a religious person to do the right things. I will try hard to be a good person doesn't work he saying instead. The reason that you can come into freedom from sin is because you have a new nature is one who is under grace. And when you live out of that new nature. Things begin to happen radically change your life, just tell you what happens in that think Paul is talking about both these things here and Romans chapter 6 when I say that that your new nature.
Your born-again nature. Your spirit alive to God and this fruit of the Holy Spirit in your life and it changes the way you look at things changes what you think is fine, it changes what you think is the nature of of freedom. Your eyes get open to truth like this is so funny that to say so. Some people if I well know I need not be before they hesitate become a Christian because there like they're afraid to God will make him let go of some things you know and are life is a how silly this is because it assumes that sin is just wonderful. It is fun. It's not going to give you couple example I got the laughing so hard many years ago when an all-terrain evangelist was here and he preached the sermon one time code is hard to be a center and he got me laughing so hard and he was talking about how committed you gotta be as hardware to be a sinner and I was thinking you know I agree with this. Even as a young man back in high school and college I was a Christian and and I have so many my friends even some Christian friends and they love to go and get drunk and I want these people. I watch my freshman year in college, and I thought as hard work. I mean, you got to be so committed and it is hardware. You gotta spend a lot of money that you know college freshman I mean have you found a way to spend that money and get all the beer ago pay you know you're part of the keg. Alyssa and I watch and they go in because first places are you going to commit you spend that money and then you gotta go drink. You gotta drink it over and over when you're not thirsty and is hard work and a man, you gotta do all the dumb things people do when they're drunk and in people when they're drunk and I think people are laughing with him know they're laughing at them know you're doing dumb things and you're saying dumb things and then I want to come back to the dorm and and they throw up throwing up throwing up is disgusting. It's hard work you ever I'm sorry the summer so gross, but we are talking about sin, sin, and you got it. You gotta throw up. And if it's nasty sometimes they did make it down to the back to the bathroom down the hallway and it right there in her own bed on this.
This is disgusting. This is nasty and then they can't wake up the next morning Harley and their heads hurt so bad and I just looked at that and and and I like is is hard to be of center is hard work is hard work is work to be better.
I tell you, you know the reason.
I just don't deliver much bitterness is I just don't have the energy for it. How can people do that you gotta have such a good memory break. I cannot remember all those things I cannot remember them.
I mean, I've only got so much hard drive space up here and I cannot remember everything. If I'm having to remember everything wrong about ever did to me. How could people go around concentrate.
Not hard. I just like to relax more than that will go around remembered every bad thing everybody did to me. It's hard to be better as hardware to be competence, it will drain everybody energy you got to be covetous. Oh mercy to walk around and always have to compare yourself to somebody else and when you do finally get a little bit happiness that comes your way. You gotta concentrate to turn your attention to what somebody else had better than you and that it's hard right will have more teaching moment from today's important series like something is holding you back if you can important see that could change everything.

We will send you a special offer. We are happy to send this to you as I thanks from Allen right ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website pastor and.work days teaching now continues your once again is what Paul saying here is that, don't be deceived into thinking that sin is actually something that is life-giving when it's opposite for what he say in how your new nature, you see that you don't just have a command from the Lord to forgive and not let her Bitterroot spring up lesson to file many as he process you have an invitation to freedom. Who's the one that's more free, the one who is better are the one who has forgiven. Who's the one who's more free, the one who has to gossip and put other people down are the one who just so secure they don't have to. Who is more free.
So what he is defining for us is what freedom really is all about.
There was Amanda. They still have this ministry height/how half. He has trained some of them most obedient dogs in the world. They had one daughter still have her years ago. It was named Isaiah 4031 and anything Isaiah 4031 to this dog. One a lot of the obedience contest nationally and they call out the winner is Isaiah 4031 so he want people looking at upside usual Ron and not faint.
He he he is dog is so obedient that he could put the dog's favorite treat mounted hundred yards away and call the dog and I'll be going to full sprint in the 50 yards on the way but was stuck just for energy to do anything he wanted for as long as he wanted that dog would not move. Even though his favorite treats down at the end and what he would do so will object illustration to go over behind a big rock and you pull out of rubber snake and he said one of the fact was, I knew there was a snake.
You give me to come upon the legacy things the dog can't see and use this to say which is more free the dog disobedient. The dog is not. I tell you first hand receipt are precious.
All we did not socialize him with other dogs leave little to big mistake not socializing with other dogs. I didn't know I read in a book to be sure, socializing with other dogs, but I did not obey that and didn't have time to socialize at will and socialize one other dog and therefore the only like one other doll and it is just bark his head off try to attack another dog so I like to walk the dog, but is just miserable because you're walking the dog and if you see another dog is pulling all the leases will be already think you will be going terms of the Tasmanian devil and so we be like my daughter and I she's a little girl were walking the dog, Abby going to turn a corner.
You run up ahead see if there's a dog coming down that way. I mean, this is bondage what's dog is more free the dog so obedient to just walk right alongside his master or one little Pullen's follow every sentence and chase down every other doll will the dog, it's that obedient you when you put a leash on it.
I have coveted nose doll. I've seen people walk on scene and then at the beach before the dog. Not only does it walk along the side of the other dogs barking at him everything dog is walking along that was my beagle. He would be a half-mile away already. Now all look at this again this is beginning to make sense to you. You have a new nature. And that's why it's important that you identify yourself Christian is a saint rather than a center live out your new nature. It's important that you understand therefore that you're dead to sin and that sin will have no dominion over you. Verse 14. Sin will have no dominion over you, and instead what he saying is you have a new loyalty to the picture of the Scripture to say that you're free is not to say you're free in the sense that the spirit of our age was to say freedom where it doesn't matter what you do but is saying that freedom is defined by utter and complete submission to God is used to bother me to read Romans six and says now your slave to write this I might know when I slave see what he's using is not the image of oh, you're a slave and sense of being whipped and fearful and all that but what he's using now is the image to say the thing to which you are gladly willingly ultimately permanently fully submitted such I've come to see one of the greatest desires of my life that I be a slave to righteousness can only say about that is in that you just be just so things of God would just take over your life so much that everything else just smells putrid to you and want something smells putrid to you. You don't have to work at staying away from it you hammy you the way, if you're struggling right now beloved in a particular area of your life the way that you're going to come out of this is not by law but by grace because it is in grace that you find you are in a whole new covenant that is not of your merits, but of the merits of Christ and they are in, you find yourself utterly submitted to God what is worship, I present my body was a living sacrifice I worship you I love you. I'm praying that the things that you want of the things that I want. This is the pathway to true liberty live out of who you are is one who has been made holy and what this news means to me. It is so glorious and so wonderful to think of this beloved that the things that are toxic. That might have a lured you in the past don't have to lure you is that not glorious news and it is so wonderful. If you're not a Christian. I hope at least you wish it were true the lease you would want it to be true that a higher sovereign joy occupies yourself the way of freedom is the kindness of God that draws you into a submitted relationship with the one who loves you more than anyone could ever and who knows everything that is best for you, who died for you, who intercedes for you who reigns in power for who fights in the heavenly is for you who took on send for you. Who became obedient, even unto the torture of the shame of the cross for you that one who loves you perfectly fall into submission to him that his freedom I said honey I when I cannot. I got a pretrial when doing it but we can't just have forever a bird flying around. She said don't you harm that bird that's okay well will drop the towel on by well the bird was hiding somewhere and I said I'm just going get real quiet massive Lord I do not want to harm. This is your little creature and I don't know why he's in my bedroom. But you need to get out of here and and and is as you take him out here I sit, because I me to go pray him out almost want to melt and I don't and I got real quiet house on the little fellow hopped out from under the bed and he looked up at me and I just looked at his and then I became the bird whisperer I said hey little fella. You don't want to be in this bedroom is a whole big beautiful world out there with the big blue sky trees to make nests out there. I'm tell you truth.
This is not a lot is what he start hopping he hopped a little bit towards the door.
I said no thank you Jesus just people hopping little bird I said and I took a little step behind him. I had laid the broom down. I'm not gonna hurt you and then he hopped again a start hopping out the door.
I had the two front doors why open and he hopped down the hallway and got to the precipice of stepping outside so once he sees that bright blue sky out there is only "but he when he stood up at the edge of the doorway and he looked at the turnaround. A look back at me like you try to make his mind up that point I said she and Athol away, but instead he hopped out the front patio and start hopping around looking up amino acid. I have close front doors you will try to hop back in the house and I sat down he jumped up called little malt the air and we sat there and talk to each other for a while and I had a new friend because kindness needs to repentance you not to come out here soon by getting more more scared you're going to come out by realizing the fullness of what Jesus is done for you have a new nature live out of that and you will live free from sin and that's a gospel right good news is we come to the conclusion of our series belonging to God in this teaching read from sin.

Allen right ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website pastor out.work at the risk of being criticized by some as just being positive thinkers that we are really looking at the gospel for what it means what it does for our attitude. I think of those coaches who coach singers and those who use their voice now is talk about you had a good posture and I think of that of the gospel doing that it gives us the posture and being free from sin, you walk taller and that's a good image of Daniel because you it's like something you take in, then you are filled with a new sense of hope and expectancy so much as we were just learning of of the power of the gospel is in the hope that comes with it and you get a new nature and cries and you get a new hope and I think that's so much more talk about Daniel is hope when people lose their hope they don't care so much, and that's when most income so angry I and hopelessness is causing most of our sin ethically try to attack it.
