Broadcast Date: June 6, 2021Series: FaultScripture: 1 John 1:9
Message Summary: As we begin this new series called “Faults,” we are going to begin with the place where every relationship must begin if it is going to be fixed and fixed right and that is in our relationship with God. We are going to start at the epicenter. Do you know what the epicenter is? The epicenter is the location directly above the surface of the earth where an earthquake begins. The epicenter of every fault that causes every earthquake in our relationships is this: Sin is always against God first. You can sin against God and not sin against others, but every sin against others is first a sin against God. The first step that must always be taken to restore relationships, fix friendships, and mend marriages is confession. Confession in most cases always has two dimensions: vertical and horizontal. When our sin or our thought has hurt someone else, we must confess that sin first to God and then to others. So today, we are going to show you, in one verse of scripture, the most important step anyone can ever take that want to solve the problem caused by our fault.
