Sermon Notes: The Woes of Religion(Luke 11:37 - 12:12)
The Woes of Outward Religion (37-52)
Problem: Clean on the outside, dirty on the inside - hypocrisy!
- Woe 1: Tithing herbs, neglecting justice and love
- Woe 2: Prime positions, wanting to be seen
- Woe 3: Making others impure without warning
- Woe 4: Burdening people, not easing burdens
- Woe 5: Backing the attacking of God’s spokesmen
- Woe 6: Blocking people from coming to God
- Q: Are we aware of the signs of outward, people pleasing religion in our lives?
The Answer to Outward Religion (1-12)
Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees - their hypocrisy
- Integrity - be ready for secrets to not stay secret
- Don’t fear people - fear God who loves you, so don’t be afraid!
- Don’t be ashamed of being Christ’s person
- Q: How will knowing God help us to combat hypocrisy in our lives?
