The Lie of Sin
A Sermon on Psalms 107:17-22
Some were fools through their sinful ways,
and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
they loathed any kind of food,
and they drew near to the gates of death.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them,
and delivered them from their destruction.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and tell of his deeds in songs of joy! (ESV)
Our common need; pictures given in the psalm; sin as a disease; sin as transgression; man unable to flourish without God; the lie of alcohol; the results of sin; healing and life anew in Jesus Christ.
