Jimmy’s Main Points

  • What is Sin
  • A Matter of Trust
  • Thread of Hope

Questions:

  • Give a definition of sin.  Did your definition change after listening to this sermon?
  • Jimmy described sin as an intruder.  What did he mean?  Do you agree or disagree with this statement?  Why or why not?
  • The DNA of Fallen Man: We want to be protected from pain; we want to control our pleasure; and we negotiate with God.  Do these descriptions hit home?
  • In what areas of your life are you prone to the whispering of the serpent?  In other words, where are you susceptible to question God’s goodness?
  • What surprises you about the judgment/curses of Genesis 3?
  • Jimmy described the action of God in Genesis 3:22-24 as a demonstration of grace.  What do you think of that assessment?

Suggestions:

  • Read Counterfeit Gods by Tim Keller
  • Spend time in Romans 1:18ff
  • Memorize Psalm 1
  • Read the opening chapters of The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones
