Read the sermon text: 1 Corinthians 10:11-14

Read the sermon summary: Paul warns us to be on guard against the temptation to crave evil as many of the Israelites did. If we follow their example we can be sure that we will be cut down just as they were. Is there any hope for any of us then? After all, we are well acquainted with our tendency to wander and the punishment we deserve. But the grace of God in Jesus Christ is enough to save us. In God’s faithfulness, he has provided the way of escape from sin and condemnation... the person and work of his Son, Jesus Christ. But that’s not all. Because God is faithful, we can have confidence in facing down sin and fleeing from it. But this confidence comes not by looking to our own strength, but to God's. His grace to us not only saves us, but also sustains us and empowers us so that we might bear up under temptations with faithfulness.

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:

It Is Finished
Once and for all
Once and for all
You offered up Your life
For one and all
For one and all
The perfect sacrifice

Atoning blood was shed
Love conquered when You said

Chorus
It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah we're alive
Hell was silenced when You cried
It is finished
It is finished

Who is this King
Who is this King
So mighty and so strong
He is the One
He is the One
The earth has waited for

God's remedy for sin
With mercy for all men

The earth shook and trembled the sun bowed its head
The veil of the temple was opened for man
As Jesus went down in the cold of the grave
Defeated the darkness when He overcame
The keys of the kingdom were placed into hands
Of children and priests and of fishers of men
Through all generations His voice will be heard
Creation resounds the victorious words

It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah we're alive
Hell was silenced when You cried
It is finished
It is done
Now completed the work of love
Hallelujah He's alive
Join the song of the ransomed Bride
It is finished
It is finished
It is finished
