Ray Bentley - October 27, 2019 - Matthew 23:13-22
Jesus battles for our hearts. Scripture highly honors genuine spiritual leaders who faithfully represent God and seek no self-glory. He lifts up true servants and presents them as examples to be followed. The Lord’s most scathing denunciations are directed at false teachers and false shepherds. But He was motivated by Love, not winning an argument. Jesus repeatedly uses two words: Woe and Hypocrites. How grateful every believer should be who has the opportunity to hear and study the Word of God in truth!
