Gems from Genesis: God Knows Our Attitudes

Gems from Genesis: God Knows Our Attitudes Sermon Audio Here

Gen. 25:19-34; Rom. 8:9-11

I’ve had a pretty significant wobble in my car at 50+mph; Auto place EXAMINED car, found two problems- worn tire, alignment issue. Fixed both issues, drives like new!

Learning What God Already Knows: We Are

Short Sighted By Sinful Nature ~ Genesis 25:29-34

  • 19-28 SETUP: Isaac & Rebekah have twins, Esau and Jacob; Esau is daddy’s boy / Jacob is mamma’s boy
  • 29/30 Esau driven by hunger for food
  • 31 Jacob driven by hunger for status
  • 32 Esau ignores long term consequences
  • 33 Jacob manipulates Esau
  • 34 notice Biblical warning against Esau, but NOT Jacob; BOTH guys are making decisions according to their flesh. Esau doesn’t care about his family position; Jacob is a trickster.

Stable When We Stay In The Spirit ~ Romans 8:9-11

  • 9 controlled by spirit IF THIS CONDITION IS MET: RESIDE in the Spirit
  • 10 because=DIA, by means of, through: the Spirit works THROUGH us for righteousness
  • 11 “My house, my rules” The Spirit lives IN you: do you allow Him to be the master of the house?

God works with us IN SPITE of our attitudes in the flesh; but He’d rather we COOPERATE with the Spirit as we move through life.
