Matthew 15:6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
The religious people were taking each commandment and interpreting it in such a way that it meant nothing at all. They would take God’s Words and manipulate them to the point of worthlessness. The Word was still true, but they had prepared an interpretation, an understanding that they liked.
Isn’t that what we are so guilty of all the time. We like to say that we are doing right. We accommodate the Bible to our thought pattern. We make the Bible agree with us. That way we are able to continue living any way we want.
Isn’t it time to just accept what God says and adjust our lives to the Word. Aren’t you ready to make that decision today? Turn to Jesus. Quit negating the Word of God.
