Text Sermons : Zac Poonen : Pharisees glory in their connection to godly men

Open as PDF

"Do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham for our father'" (Matthew 3:9).

A Pharisee knows he is not godly himself, and so he seeks to be associated with "Brother X", who has a reputation as a godly man, so that he can claim godliness by association. There are many carnal Christians today who glory that they are members of a church that is led by a man who has a reputation for godliness. They live off that reputation, even though they have zero holiness themselves. Pharisees mingle with godly people and imagine that they are holy too.

You can be part of a very good church and yet go to hell, if there is un-repented sin in your life, or if you have a grudge against another. If you imagine that God will condone and ignore all your backbiting and evil speaking, just because you are a part of a good church, you are mistaken. You will get a big surprise in the day of judgement. Maybe you were saved once upon a time. But you are probably lost today. So don't ever glory in your connection with godly people.
