GOD’S CHILDREN AS PILGRIMS TO THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM:
MANIFESTATION OF GOD’S REIGN ON EARTH
Date: May 14, 2023
Sub Theme: Dangers on the path of Pilgrims to heavenly Kingdom 5
Text : Luke 18:9-14
to expose the attitudes of a sanctimonious believer and
to discuss the menace on the path of pilgrims to the Kingdom of God.
Sanctimony in the religious sense is making a hypocritical show of religious devotion, piety and righteousness. A sanctimonious person is someone who always goes on and on about how he does things by priding himself as the best. It is a form of holier-than-thou attitude and a feeling of self-righteousness. They pride in the name of a particular denomination, pastor and founder above loyalty to God. Our Lord Jesus Christ condemned such attitude in the Pharisees’ life in today’s Bible passage.
From the Bible passage today, mention some of the attitudes of a sanctimonious person. Compare with Luke 15:16
Mention some of the sanctimonious behaviours of Christians in our generation?
Which Church denomination is the best in heaven? Rev 7:9, Rev 7:13-17 and why are people preaching denominations in our generation?
What is the biblical injunction concerning sanctimony? Eccl 7:16; Rom 12:3; Eph 2:8;
Sanctimonious believers always talk about themselves above Christ, the only gateway to heaven. Their loyalty to human institution and personality will make them enemies of God and thus throw them off the track towards eternal bliss. Therefore, run from sanctimonious track.
Food for Thought
Whatever we are in Christ is by the grace of God.
Rom 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith”.
