Knowledge of Sin = I need Jesus

May 26, 2016

Romans 3:19-20

19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

This morning I read through Exodus 20, as many of you may know that is the chapter were God spoke to Moses on top of the mountain and explained to him the ten commandments.

Today I wanted to use the scripture above and show us what the law’s (commandments of God) purpose is for us today.

Ten Commandments:

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make for yourself a craved image…
  3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain…
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy…
  5. Honor your father and your mother…
  6. Shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet…

The law has many purposes if we look at it from its birth to today. However for the sake of time, lets focus on one point.

Exposure to sin.

Jesus took several of the commandments and actually made them even more impossible.

Like number 6, Jesus actually said if you hate your brother you are committing murder. Jesus also said if you look at a woman lustfully you are committing adultery. We also know that bearing false witness deals with lying. Whether big or small, or even a so-called white lie, they all are bearing false witness. Just based off of these three alone, if we are honest we all are very guilty, and without a Savior our day in God’s court will not go well.

The law gives us the knowledge of sin. Without this knowledge and recognition, you will never pursue Jesus. The more we hate our sin, the more we will pursue a deeper more intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

In Isaiah we learn that God views our man achieved righteousness as filthy rags. I heard in a sermon the other day a pastor said the word rags is translated from the same word used to describe a used menstrual pad. So when we try to be righteous in our own strength that is how God views us.

Men, remember that we are justified by faith, not works. Surrender you heart, confess all your sins to the Lord and turn from them.

Grace and Peace to you all.
