HOW DOES PERSONAL WORSHIP START?
3) Linked with kindness is a of sin
Romans 2:4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”
THE WOMEN WHO WORSHIPED JESUS EXTRAVAGANTLY
Luke 7:36-39 36One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to have dinner with him, so Jesus went to his home and sat down to eat. 37When a certain immoral woman from that city heard he was eating there, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume. 38Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them. 39When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know what kind of woman is touching him. She’s a sinner!”

HOW DO I VISIT THE DEPTHS OF MY SIN?
DON’T STAY THERE. (PREACH THE GOSPEL TO YOURSELF EVERY DAY.)
He accepts me in Christ.
WE WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM.
Psalm 63:1-3 1O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. 2I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory. 3Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!
