Ray Bentley - November 10, 2019 - Matthew 23:23-36
Jesus warns us against majoring in the minors. Legalists (like the Pharisees) are sticklers for details, but are blind to greater truths. They can actually be theologically correct, but their tone and application turn it into abusive/damaging application. Keep our hearts pure. Be peacemakers, and look up! You have a work that is assigned to you by Jesus! Find it. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
