Word Wednesday .::33

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Sorry this is a day late...I had a crazy two days.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Mark 7:6-8 ESV

6
And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,

“‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;

7 in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

8 You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.”

I heard John Piper speak on this one time. He pointed out that doctrine without passion is short of true worship, and vice-versa. It's great to study God's Word and to have a solid doctrine, but it's equally as important to love God with all our heart, mind, and soul. It makes me wonder if you really can have a sound doctrine and not understand that principle.



What's your Word?
