Life Lesson (Psalm 51:12)

We judge ourselves by our intentions (what we meant to do) and we judge others by their actions, not their intentions. It gives us an unfair comparison, so we look good, and everyone else looks bad.

Life Lesson (Psalm 51:12)

Unfortunately, at times, no one recognized the sacrifices of Jesus. At times, we don’t recognize the ones sacrificing to bless us.

Life Lesson (Psalm 51:12)

Quit longing for what used to be and focus on what could be, if you were fully engaged. Stop whining and wanting to go back to Egypt.

Life Lesson (Psalm 51:12)

Jesus died for our sins before we were born. He paid for our sins before we had personally committed our first sin.

Verses Referenced and Teaching Notes
Isaiah 59:3-8 NKJV
3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, Your tongue has muttered perversity. 4 No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. 5 They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; He who eats of their eggs dies, And from that which is crushed a viper breaks out. 6 Their webs will not become garments, Nor will they cover themselves with their works; Their works are works of iniquity, And the act of violence is in their hands. 7 Their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8 The way of peace they have not known, And there is no justice in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths; Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.
1 John 1:6-10 NKJV
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:4-5 NKJV
4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. 5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
Psalms 58:3-4 NKJV
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; They are like the deaf cobra that stops its ear,
Job 38:32-37 NKJV
32 Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth? 34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That an abundance of water may cover you? 35 Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, And say to you, ‘Here we are!!’? 36 Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart? 37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven,
Isaiah 1:16-20 NKJV
16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, 17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. 18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; 20 But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Sin and Leprosy
  1. Like Leprosy sin is very contagious: complaining, gossip, drinking, etc. 
  2. Like leprosy, sin makes you unclean and if you don’t realize you have a disease, you are in real trouble.
  3. Like leprosy sin isolates. You had to go outside the camp. Sin causes you to stay away from church. So does sickness and caring for the sick. 
  4. Like leprosy sin is observable, you can see sin in people’s lives. 
  5. You cannot always see leprosy, sometimes it was covered. Just like you cannot always see sin, some is hidden. You can see the symptoms. 
  6. Like leprosy sin is deadly. 
  7. Leprosy could come out of an injury, a scab, a burn, or a boil. Like leprosy, sin often comes from injury, or a perceived injury. 
  8. Like leprosy sin needs a cure, it needs healing. 
  9. Like leprosy sin will kill you if left unchecked and uncured. 
  10. With leprosy and sin if you deny it exists it will kill you. 
  11. With leprosy and sin if you try to figure out where it came from (whose fault it is) instead of being healed or treated, you will die from them. 
  12. Like leprosy sin can cause a re-infection and we must be careful. 
  13. Like leprosy, sin is both healed and kept away by being clean and cleaner. 
  14. Like leprosy sin can cause panic, depression, and death if not dealt with. 
  15. Like leprosy sin will cause destruction, destruction of body, home, marriage, and family. 
  16. Like leprosy, sin can now be healed.  
  17. Like leprosy, if you deny you have sin, it becomes deadly thru its non-treatment. 
  18. Leprosy like sin (and like the enemy) without the Lord will steal, kill and destroy all it touches. 
  19. Leprosy like sin will bring death to your relationships, your emotions, and even your soul before the body dies. 
  20. Like leprosy brings a numbness, a death of good feeling; sin brings a numbness to love, sin robs you of good emotions. 
  21. Leprosy and sin takes what is good and makes it bad. Sleeping is good and needed but with sin it becomes laziness or insomnia. Eating is good but with sin, it becomes gluttony or starving. Sex is good in marriage, but sin uses sex to wage war between husband and wife (not bring them together). Sex outside the marriage destroys homes, destroys marriages and children. Sin takes what is good and makes it bad. 
  22. Leprosy like sin will land you outside the camp. 
  23. Leprosy likes sin will damage and steal fellowship with others. Leprosy thru being unclean, keeps you from others, sin thru staying away from church, keeps you from others. 
  24. Leprosy like sin seems to be a small problem at first but it is quite deadly. 
  25. Leprosy like sin starts small but then consumes you, takes you over completely.
  26. Lepers say, “God, if you will heal me I will come to You.” God says, “Lepers and sinners if you come to Me, I will heal you; heal your thinking.”
