IF we fail to recognize how spiritually impressive the Pharisees were - we will remain blind to
the danger of becoming like them. - Larry Osborne.
Dark Side of Spiritual Passion: Our passion can drown out our compassion
Dark Side of Spiritual Passion: God’s grace only available to the deserving
Women caught in adultery (John 8)
Haughty eyes: Looking down on others
God’s grace available to all
“It’s okay to not be okay”
Can anyone walk through our doors and be welcome here?
Messy Grace by Caleb Kaltenbach
Accidental Pharisee: More concerned about raising the bar than making Jesus attractive
Do you have your own Luke 18:10 “Thank God I’m not like them” list?
Dark Side of Spiritual Passion: Mercy gets crowded out and cast aside
Breaking the Sabbath: Jesus’ favorite rule to violate
Sabbath: Exodus 20:10 On it you shall not do any work.
Matthew 12:10, John 5:1-18, John 9
It appears Jesus was flippant about obedience to Scripture
Mercy over sacrifice every time
The Law forbid harvesting (Exodus 34:21)
Jesus said in Matthew 5:7 God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
NLT
