"No Mercy for You Are Holy"

Speaker: Pastor Kevin Cox

Central Passage: Deuteronomy 7:1-11


  1. Obedience Begins with God's Character (Deuteronomy 7:9-10)
    • Yahweh is the God.
    • Yahweh is the faithful God.
    • Yahweh is faithful to those who love to keep His commands
    • Yahweh faithfully judges God-haters.
  2. God Commanded Israel to Destroy Paganism (Deuteronomy 7:1-5)
    • Three negative commands:
      • Make no covenant with them.
      • Show them no mercy.
      • Don't intermarry with them.
    • Four positive commands:
      • Break down their altars.
      • Smash their pillars.
      • Cut down their Asherim.
      • Burn their carved images.
  3. God's People Are Set Apart (Deuteronomy 7:6-8, 11)
  4. Conclusion
    • We are at spiritual war--guard yourself by keeping God's commands.
    • Our idolatry leaves us weary--let Jesus love for you.
    • Purge idolatry from your life in a discipling community.
    • For unbelievers, we were all God-haters once.
