Lenten Sermon Series: Consider…
Consider Sin

Jeremiah 2:1-13, 19, NRSV

Your wickedness will punish you, and your apostasies will convict you. Know and see that it is evil and bitter for you to forsake the Lord your God; the fear of me is not in you, says the Lord God of hosts. — Jer 2:19

  • a pastor running thru a red light
  • sin exposed!
  1. sin by nature is denial; it is fatal to deny (instead of “know and see”)
    • deny God and thinking God is keeping your from the good things
  2. sin has misplaced awe
    • instead of being in awe of God, we are in awe of our own wisdom and become self-pity
    • “when you have self-pity, you are capable of anything” (!)
