3 Spiritual Pitfalls

  1. 1. Times of Services Sunday: 9:30 a.m. Bible class 10:30 a.m. worship Wednesday: 7 p.m. Bible class
  2. 2.  “Whoever digs a pit will fall into it” (Prov. 26:27; Eccl. 10:8).  What are your spiritual pitfalls?  What scenarios make us act as a fool?  Jesus warns us about many spiritual pitfalls.  Matthew 7 ◦ V. 1-5: Judging others ◦ V. 15-20: Being deceived ◦ V. 24-27: Building on a weak foundation
  3. 3.  Spiritual pitfall #1: Judging others opens the door for retaliation (v. 1-5) ◦ Matt. 7:1: Do we have the authority to pass judgment on others? ◦ Every judgment that a person makes becomes a basis for his or her own judgment. ◦ John 7:24: “Judge with righteous judgment.” ◦ Matt. 7:3-5: Do we try to fix others because it provides a good distraction? ◦ Bottom line: Jesus is condemning hypocritical judging.
  4. 4.  Spiritual pitfall #2: Being deceived (v. 15- 20) ◦ Not everyone who claims to know God does: “By their fruits you will know them.” ◦ We are instructed to test the doctrine being taught (I John 4:1-6; Rev. 2:2; Acts 17:11). ◦ Are you contending for the faith (Jude 3)? ◦ Teachers have a great responsibility (James 3:1). ◦ Gal. 1:6-9: Christ’s one true gospel can save us.
  5. 5.  Spiritual pitfall #3: Building on a weak foundation (v. 24-27) ◦ Key difference is not external appearance; it is the foundation. ◦ James 1:22-25: Hearing is not enough. ◦ We’ve got to dig deep (Luke 6:46-49). ◦ A Christian’s life is built on a foundation of faith (Heb. 11:1, 6; Rom. 8:24-25).  Rom. 2:16: Our actions will not only be judged, but also our motives and secrets.
  6. 6.  Hear (Romans 1:16; 10:14,17)  Believe (John 8:24; Mark 16:16; Hebrews 11:6)  Repent (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17:30)  Confess (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 10:32-33)  Be baptized (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Mark 16:16)  Live faithfully (Revelation 2:10; Matthew 6:33; Romans 12:1-2; I Corinthians 15:58)
  7. 7.  Hear (Romans 1:16; 10:14,17)  Believe (John 8:24; Mark 16:16; Hebrews 11:6)  Repent (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17:30)  Confess (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 10:32-33)  Be baptized (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Mark 16:16)  Live faithfully (Revelation 2:10; Matthew 6:33; Romans 12:1-2; I Corinthians 15:58)
