Sermon Notes

When confronted with and caught in a sin, you’ve probably heard someone try to justify his or her actions by saying, “I wasn’t hurting anyone!” In Joshua 7, we are introduced to the biblical concept of “corporate sin.” Achan sinned, but all Israel was held responsible. Thus, there is no such thing as a strictly private sin. This is why we ought to flee sin and, when we do sin, confess and receive absolution. For our sins not only hurt us, they hurt those about whom we care the most.
