Speaker: Nathan Joyce
Series: Pharisee University
Scripture: Matthew 23:16–23:24
Nathan Joyce explains three spiritual "blind spots" caused by self-righteousness.
Blind Spot #1 – We become blind to our sin as we look for loopholes (vv. 16-20).
Self-righteousness --> Justify Sin --> Look for Loophole
Christ-righteousness --> Confess Sin --> Land on Grace
"Too often we mistakenly feel justified by our right opinions instead of right living."
Blind Spot #2 – We become blind to the beauty of God by focusing more on the things of God than God Himself (vv. 21-22).
Blind Spot #3 – We become blind to what matters most as we major on the minors (vv. 23-24).
"Your passion reveals your priorities."
