Preparing for Worship: August 6, 2017
Text : Mark 7:14-23
Christ’s antagonists had leveled an accusation. His disciples were guilty of being defiled because they didn’t wash according to the tradition of the elders, prior to eating.
Initially, Christ ignored the charge and got straight to the real issue. They replaced God’s Word with their traditions, and in that way evaded Scripture. But the crowds had to be wondering about the charge. How would Christ answer it?
This Lord’s Day we hear Christ’s answer. What really defiled a person, and where does the defilement reside?
