NOVEMBER 12 – TRADITION

11/12 John 7:19-23
None of you obeys the law of Moses! In fact, you are trying to kill me.” 20 The crowd replied, “You’re demon possessed! Who’s trying to kill you?” 21 Jesus replied, “I worked on the Sabbath by healing a man, and you were offended. 22 But you work on the Sabbath, too, when you obey Moses’ law of circumcision. (Actually, this tradition of circumcision is older than the law of Moses; it goes back to Abraham.) 23 For if the correct time for circumcising your son falls on the Sabbath, you go ahead and do it, so as not to break the law of Moses. So why should I be condemned for making a man completely well on the Sabbath?
TRADITION
The Lord was speaking to these folks and they were sold out to tradition. God’s Word wasn’t nearly as important as what someone thought of God’s Word and here they were speaking to God-Jesus. Do what Jesus says. Love one another. Love the Lord God with all of your heart. Jesus is Lord.
