1. Sin Defined
1 John 3:4 Everyone
who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God.
Exodus 20.3-17 Law of
God– Ten Commandments
1. 3 “You must not have any other god but me.
2. 4 “You must not make for yourself an idol of
any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea.
5 You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a
jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the
sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even
children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me. 6 But I
lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey
3. 7 “You must not misuse the name of the Lord
your God. The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.
4. 8 “Remember to observe the Sabbath day
by keeping it holy. 9 You have six days each week for your ordinary work, 10
but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On
that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons
and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any
foreigners living among you. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the
earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. That
is why the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart as holy.
5. 12 “Honor your father and mother. Then you
will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
6. 13 “You must not murder.
7. 14 “You must not commit adultery.
8. 15 “You must not steal.
9. 16 “You must not testify falsely against your
10. 17 “You must not covet your neighbor’s house.
You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey,
or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.”
Matthew 22:35-40 One
of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: 36
“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37
Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your
soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the
first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your
neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law
and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
2. All Have Sinned
Romans 3:23 For
everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
1 John 1:8 If we claim
we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.
3. Consequences of Sin
Genesis 2:16-17 But
the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the
garden—17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its
fruit, you are sure to die.”
Romans 5:12 When Adam
sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone,
for everyone sinned.
4. The Seat of Sin
Matthew 15:19 For from
the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft,
lying, and slander.
5. Natural Man Loves to
Jeremiah 14:10 So this
is what the Lord says to his people: “You love to wander far from
me and do not restrain yourselves. Therefore, I will no longer accept
you as my people. Now I will remember all your wickedness and
will punish you for your sins.”
6. Natural Man Opposed to
Romans 8:7 For the
sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it
7. Open to the Eye of God
Psalms 90:8 You spread
out our sins before you—our secret sins—and you see them all.
Psalms 94:11 The Lord
knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless!
8. Cleansing of Sin
Zechariah 13:1 “On
that day a fountain will be opened for the dynasty of David and for the people
of Jerusalem, a
fountain to cleanse them from all their sins and impurity.
Acts 3:19 Now repent
of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.
1 John 1:9 But if we
confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to
cleanse us from all wickedness.
