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 my commands.

 

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 neighbor.

 

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 Sin

 

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 God

 

Romans 8:7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.

 

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.
