Day 292

Today’s Reading – Matthew 15 and Mark 7


Jesus replied, “Isaiah really knew what he was talking about when he prophesied about you hypocrites. He wrote, This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me. Their worship of me is empty since they teach instructions that are human words. (Isaiah 29:13)   Mark 7:6-7 CEB

The message from God has been consistent and Jesus now reminds them of this.

Worship is empty when it is created by man to benefit man.

Worship is not about religion it is about relationship.

Do you have a relationship with God or are you still negotiating the rules?

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
