9 And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!
Is what you believe truly Biblical? Many Christians are wrapped up in religion and tradition under the impression that what they believe is the Word of God. Somewhere along the way, rather than drawing wisdom from the Word of God and using it to form beliefs, many in the church began putting a Biblical spin their own traditions and theories to justify the methods they already had in practice. This watered down version of Christianity is void of power and therefore lacking in results. Ask yourself why you do the ‘Christian’ things that you do. Why do (or don’t) you go to church? Why do (or don’t) you tithe and give? Why do you believe the way you do about prayer, healing, or worship? Can you back up the way you believe with scripture? You may not be wrong in the way you believe but if you don’t have those beliefs rooted in the Word they cannot produce faith results. Give yourself a spiritual debrief every now and then. It will keep you in line with God and help your faith remain strong and productive. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
