Have you checked your traditions lately? – Mark 7:6-9

June 3, 2012
Mark 7:6 Jesus replied, “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
7 Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.’
8 For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”
9 Then he said, “You skillfully sidestep God’s law in order to hold on to your own tradition.”

It’s so easy to appear righteous around the righteous. But how’s your spiritual life in the privacy of your own home?
·       Are you the first to bless everyone around you? But are you blessed?

·       Do you figure that showing up your place of worship makes you holy?

·       Do you hope that holy from your family rubs off on you? It doesn’t, trust me.

Have you had a heart-to-heart talk with God lately? Have you asked for guidance? Have you asked God to change your life? Better yet – have you told the Lord that you are ready to do his will?
Have you asked for the refining fires only he can light to make you the person he created you to be? Have you checked your traditions with what the Bible says? It’s good to take a soul and lifestyle check often.
Are you on a genuine journey or are you blowing smoke?
