Sunday Sermon Outline: Exodus 32:7-8

“Corruption within the Camp”
Exodus 32:7-8

Introduction: 1 Samuel 16:7

Exodus 32:7-8, “Go down at once, for your people, whom you brought up from the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.[8] They have quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them. They have made for themselves a molten calf, and have worshiped it and have sacrificed to it and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt!’” 

Exodus 32:9-10, “The LORD said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. [10] Now then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation.””

Exodus 15:1-2; Hebrews 4:11

I. Corruption occurs when you refuse to wait on God
     Exodus 32:1, “Now when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us a god who will go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.””

Deuteronomy 32:4-6; Exodus 32:3-4; Exodus 20:22-23; Psalm 10:11; Isaiah 49:14-15; Romans 8:28; Psalm 34:15, 19; Psalm 27:14; Galatians 5:5

II. Corruption occurs when God is no longer in control.
     Exodus 32:25, “Moses saw that the people were out of control—for Aaron had let them get out of control to be a derision among their enemies.”

Isaiah 1:4; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

III. Corruption in the camp cannot be tolerated.
     Exodus 32:25-28, “Now when Moses saw that the people were out of control—for Aaron had let them get out of control to be a derision among their enemies— [26] then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, “Whoever is for the LORD, come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered together to him. [27] He said to them, “Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘Every man of you put his sword upon his thigh, and go back and forth from gate to gate in the camp, and kill every man his brother, and every man his friend, and every man his neighbor.’” [28] So the sons of Levi did as Moses instructed, and about three thousand men of the people fell that day.”

Deuteronomy 23:14; Exodus 32:29

Conclusion: Galatians 6:7-9
