THE BOOK OF MARK 7: 6-8


MARK, Chapter 7: verses 6 through 8…A RESPONSIVE READING.

 

LEAD READER—Isaiah was right, prophesying against hypocrites, saying:

PEOPLE—THESE PEOPLE HONOR GOD WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM HIM.

 

LEAD—They worship God in vain.  Their teachings are but rules taught by men.

 

PEOPLE—THEY HAVE LET GO OF THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND HOLD TO THE TRADITIONS OF MEN.

 

LEAD—We have each substituted at times our own traditions for what God’s Word actually says.

 

PEOPLE—FORGIVE US FOR NOT ALLOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE US IN OUR UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR WORD.

 

LEAD—-Accept God’s gracious forgiveness for your sins, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

ALL—WE PLEDGE TO NO LONGER ACT OR THINK LIKE HYPOCRITES.  TEACH US TO MORE FULLY SUBMIT TO YOUR SPIRIT, CASTING ALL OUR PRECONDITIONS  ASIDE.  AMEN.
