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?
