What’s the big deal with sin? Isn’t the whole idea just an antiquated idea to steer us away from enjoying our freedom to be and do anything we want? Can a list of sins created 1500 years ago hold key to the best life possible? Join us as we take a look into the seven deadly sins!

The earliest mention of the Seven Deadly Sins in History come from a monk named Evagrius of Pontus who in 553 A.D. It was in the desert that Evagrius identified and listed eight demons (nagging sins) that couldn’t be avoided but had to be dealt with.

Evagrius’s list of 8 demons, over time and thought, became known as the Seven Deadly Sins: pride, gluttony, envy, greed, anger, sloth and lust. Join us as we dive in to understanding how to identify what’s really going on with these famous sins and learn how to combat them in our lives.

Passionate Spirituality - Meridian Point Church

Here we’ll list things we can do individually and as a church in response to what we’ve heard. We hope you’ll find this useful in growing in your relationship with God and with others.[/intro][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1497979469524{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;background-color: #34393f !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”About The Series: Passionate Spirituality” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]

When people are asked to describe a spiritual person, the general description involves things like, they aren’t flashy or extreme. They tend to be “soft” and avoid conflict. They tend to be old, early risers, plain dressers, and have physically slow movements. So basically a spiritual person is pictured as an old Kung Fu teacher. Is that what passionate spirituality looks like?

  • Get in a LifeGroup and begin to find a place to serve. You can’t get into deeper relationships in God’s church simply sitting here on Sunday morning. Bluntly? If you’ve been attending here for more than a year and you haven’t gotten into a small group or you’re not serving somewhere… what’s the point? We want to really encourage you to BE the Church, not just attend it. That’s scary to say, because we know saying that could cause attendance and giving to drop… but we’re not as interested in that as we are your spiritual growth and health.
  • Pray and read your Bible daily. We’re going to post things daily to pray about and a Bible reading schedule online. Visit our Facebook page to get involved.
  • Commit to not missing a Sunday unless you are working or out of town. This isn’t one of those things you can do on your own. We need you here because this challenge can only be done with all of us together.

Make it specific. Then see what kind of passion begins to build as you let the breath of God fill your life.

For the word of the Lord holds true,
    and we can trust everything he does.
He loves whatever is just and good;
    the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.

The Lord merely spoke,
    and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
    and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries
    and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
Let the whole world fear the Lord,
    and let everyone stand in awe of him.
For when he spoke, the world began!
    It appeared at his command.

Psalm 33:4-9 (NLT)
