What Does Man Say God Says?  

JANUARY 30 & 31, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Mark 7:7  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Ok, today we will do a simple test of our Bible skills. Where do you find these phrases in Scripture? “Cleanliness is next to Godliness…” “God works in mysterious ways…” or, “God helps those who help themselves…” These all sound very biblical and logical. Some will even argue with you that this is what the Bible says. The Bible does say those things, right? No, it is not right. Being clean is important, and I think the idea is great; however, it is not in the Bible. If we are to be Biblically accurate, God helps man when man could not help themselves. Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

    Sometimes we look extremely hard to try to make the Bible say what we want it to. Pulling a verse from here and a verse from there, and then tying them all together to make a doctrine. However, Jesus warned people about that in Mark7:7 where it says, “Howbeit in VAIN do they worship me.” What? Preacher are you telling me all those great religious actions we do are in VAIN. Not actually. Some things we do help us in our worship of God. However, if these actions are not in God’s Word and we call them a doctrine of the church, that is wrong. Or, if we do things because we have been told to, believing somehow, we must do them to be saved or to be Holy, well, I guess the Bible speaks for itself. More importantly, the Bible speaks for God, because it is His Word.     

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    As you read your Bible today, read the entire passage to gain the full meaning of God’s Word. His truths are in the passages of Scripture, in the chapters and the books. I believe you will find that there is enough truth written in God’s Word for us to work on already in our lives, without making up new stuff that really is not even there.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
