Joshua 7
October 9, 2016

 I.     THE DANGEROUS COURSE OF SIN

            Stage 1: Innocent temptation (“I saw”)

            Stage 2: Lustful thought (“I coveted”)

            Stage 3: Disobedient act (“I took”)

            Stage 4: Dishonest cover-up (“I hid”)

II. THE DESTRUCTIVE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN

 1. My sin never stays secret
“You may be SURE that your sin will find you out.”  -Numbers 32:23

2. My sin always hurts others

3. My sin blocks my prayers
“If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.” -Psalm 66:18

III. THE DIVINE CURE FOR SIN

1. Develop a radical hatred toward sin
“If you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you PUT TO DEATH the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” - Romans 8:13

2. Practice both confession and repentance
“He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever CONFESSES and RENOUNCES them finds mercy.” - Proverbs 28:13

3. Accept God’s cleansing
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”    -1 John 1:9
