Keeping Up with the Joneses

Word got around about Barnabas
Pride is the issue
Not a new tactic - we feel we’re missing out
Gen
Genesis 3:5 HCSB
“In fact, God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Big S versus little s
Not giving all was not issue - heart was issue
Jeremiah 17:9 HCSB
The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable—who can understand it?
Big S versus little s
Chance to repent - pride had taken hold
Gates can’t be beaten - then attack on the inside
Seems harsh - but God takes sin seriously
Genesis 4:7 HCSB
If you do what is right, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”
Seduction of Sin
I’m not that bad
1 John 1:8 HCSB
If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Severity of Sin
It is all encompassing - everyone everywhere
Isaiah 59:1–2 HCSB
Indeed, the Lord’s hand is not too short to save, and His ear is not too deaf to hear. But your iniquities have built barriers between you and your God, and your sins have made Him hide His face from you so that He does not listen.
Solution of Sin
We can’t fix it but there is one who did
No self help
If you want to know what God thinks of sin look at the cross
2 Corinthians 5:21 HCSB
He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
I am convinced that the first step towards attaining a higher standard of holiness is to realize more fully the amazing sinfulness of sin. J.C. Ryle
