August 30, 2015 – What’s on the Inside?

Scripture:

  • Mark 7:1-7, 14-15, 21-23

Key Points:

  • Clean / Unclean: Test of the Levitical law: what is animal is clean vs unlean (example: Bison, oyster, BLT, pollack, giraffe, rabbit, ostrich)
  • Don’t be a watchdog! (Mark 7:2 – Jesus calls out the pharisees as the watchdogs)
  • Don’t worship tradition (Mark 7:3-4 )
  • Don’t be a showman (Mark 7:6-7 – Be authentic in your worship.  Don’t act for outwardly appearance.)
  • Do you listen to Jesus (Mark 7:14 – Take the time to listen to Jesus.  Listen takes intent, focus)
  • What’s on your inside (Mark 7:14-15, 21-23 – It is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come)
