You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: “‘This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me; in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him.
Loving Father, help us to build our faith by hearing & obeying Your Word.
Consequently faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the preached word of Christ.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.
Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
There are many tough decisions that we make everyday. A lot of times we simply weigh the pros and cons. However, the problem with that approach is the beneficiary is you.
Shifting your thinking away from “how can I benefit?” will allow you to invite God into the choices you make. Remember, a good decision today that benefits others but cost you something will bring peace to you now with long-term benefits.
