V1-7 the song
The vineyard – God provides yet Israel turns their back.
How have we responded to God’s blessings?
The six woes
The context – Israel was prosperous.
Israel would not be receptive.
V8 – excess, greed, covertness, materialism
Lack of contempt. Do you see that in yourself, especially in SG.
Paul – rejoice in the blessings God has given.
Conscious of your society. Danger of being to legalistic.
Indulging in yourself vs giving to the needy – that will tell us where are heart is.
Woe 2 – drunkenness
Hedonism – pursuit of pleasure.
Yolo. Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
Are we prepared to stand out against society?
V18 – being proud of sin
V20 – Twisting morality
The world is always against God.
Tell the world out of love.
Carnal Christians – willingly sining against God.
V21 – proudness
V22 – injusticed
One sin is not worse than the other.
We will be asked one day to make a stand, like Daniel.
