August 21, 2016 - Sacred – but Blemished - Exodus 28:36-38

posted Aug 25, 2016, 5:59 AM by Grant Garber
Are we guilty of sin in holy things?
  1. What about our repentance?
    • Sometimes our repentance is not real repentance at all; it is only remorse and fear. Sometimes we are sad and even in tears, not because we have done wrong, but because we have been found out or may yet be found out.
  2. What about our worship?
    • We come to worship sometimes and find our minds distracted by the interests and cares of the world, not the great solemn cares which demand to be brought into the presence of God.
  3. What about our prayers?
    • Our prayers are sometimes careless, inadequate and very often selfish.
  4. What about our service?
    • Isn’t it shameful that our service is at times unworthy and that we aren’t always eager, happy, and aware of the privilege of being allowed to do it?
  5. What about our giving?
    • Isn’t it amazing that some are miserable in their giving to God and bring, like the Hebrews whom Malachi condemned, a blemished sacrifice to the altar – less than they should and resentful at that?
Commitment – We cry, “Save us from our sin in the ‘holy things’!”
