May 4th, 2013 – Sermon on “Humanity’s Two Greatest Dangers” by Jody McCoy

Jody McCoy’s sermon on “Humanity’s Two Greatest Dangers” used parables in Luke 15 to identify the dangers of unrighteousness and self-righteousness. He used these parables to show how unrighteousness can be manifested through inheritance, through circumstance or through choice. Jody then addressed self-righteousness using the parable of the Lost Son to show human indignation, forgiveness and grace.

JodyJody used the following scriptures: Luke 15: 1-31, 1 John 3:10

    Thanks for the sermon Jody, I wasn’t there to hear it firsthand, but the recording brought it to me as if I was there. I think you did a good job with these two issues that are so common to humanity.

    Really enjoyed your sermon. Sometimes we get the idea that if we just try hard to do everything we can to please God, we will have
    “earned” our way to the Kingdom . . without realizing that our self-righteousness is a very real problem that we must deal with. The attitude of the brother in the “Prodigal Son” parable is sometimes the way that we find ourselves feeling. The love that we must feel toward all others is the best testimony we can show. It is also the one thing that God requires of us . . love for Him and love for humanity. Missed you, Jeff. You are always an encouragement to the speakers!

    Jody, I also enjoyed your message. I don’t recall if you used 2 Cor.10:12- “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” The son who stayed at home made this comparison and fell into the trap of self-righteousness. It is not the righteousness of someone else that we will be justified.
