December 15 Focus Scripture

Greetings brethren,

Matthew 15:8-9 Matthew 15:8-9 8 This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
American King James Version×
is the focus for this week.

” These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

Each of us is responsible for his personal worship of God. We must worship, not according to human reasoning, but from the heart in sincerity and in truth as found in God’s written word.

Have a fine Sabbath.
