Sermon

Listen: The Gospel Creates a Culture of Honor
(Romans 12:10-18)

I. Honor is esteeming, valuing, and respecting another
II. Sin destroys a culture of honor
       A. We base giving honor on if we think that the one we are giving honor to deserves it. However, the bible commands us to "honor all"
       B. Jesus says in Matthew 12:34 that our words are a diagnostic to our hearts. The root issue we have with our tongue is our heart and the only cure of our issue is the gospel
III. The gospel creates a culture of honor
       A. The gospel penetrates the root of our heart and liberates us to honor others
       B. In the gospel Jesus honored sinners who were dead in their sins. He raised them to Himself and made them co-heirs with Himself by faith in Him
       C. Because of the honor we have received from Jesus, we ought to graciously honor all. Those we get along with and those we don't
