Hypocrites

Hypocrites

Matthew 23:25-28

By David F. Reagan

 

Their Appearance

    1. Clean (v. 25)
    2. Beautiful (v. 27)
    3. Righteous (v. 28; Matthew 5:20; Romans 10:1-3)

 

Their Uncleanness Within (Matthew 15:17-20)

    1. Extortion (v. 25; Ezekiel 34:1-3,8)
    2. Excess (v.25; 1 Peter 4:3-4)
    3. Hypocrisy (v. 28) Defined in (Mark 7:6)
    4. Iniquity (v. 28)

 

Their Blindness (v. 26)

    1. They Focus on Being Seen Instead of Seeing (v. 5-7, 14; Matthew 6:1, 5, 16)
    2. Blind to Spiritual Values (v. 16-22)
    3. Blind to Godly Practice (v. 23-24)
    4. Blind to Their Own Hypocrisy (v. 29-35)

 

The Solution (v. 26)

    1. Cleanse First That Which is Within (Isaiah 1:18)
    2. Then the Outside Will Be Clean
