Topic: Truth Passage: Mark 7:9–7:13
In this week's message from the Traditions series, Ryan Johnston teaches from Mark 7. In this passage there are two key takeaways that help us focus on the truth of God's Word: 1) We must reject a self-serving faith, 2) We must submit ourselves to God's Word. Jesus, the son of God who died on the cross and rose again three days later, is named "The Truth" and we are to follow his teachings, believe that he is the son of God who died for our sins, and reject the kind of faith that is all about us. Our nature wants to tell God that we're the boss, but when we submit to him we see Jesus' arms stretched wide showing his love for us. Obeying God's Word will always lead us into grace and truth and life.
