Bits and Bytes

Posted by Rick on March 3, 2008

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday’s sermon, “Lip Service” based on Matthew 15:1-9:

  • Traditions can be good or bad.  If they keep us from good, then they are bad.
  • Traditions are not to be worshiped.  They are to help us to worship.
  • Only God can declare what is to be believed and to be done in His service.  When we put traditions above the Word of God, then we declare that we know what is best.
  • Worship is in vain if your heart is not close to God.
  • If you “talk the talk”, you need to “walk the walk”.
  • You can’t say you are going to do this or that and then never do it.
  • God doesn’t live in a building; He lives in us!
  • The church building is just a building.  We are His temple.
  • We don’t go to church; we ARE the church.
  • Many of us have a spiritual heart problem.
  • A by-product of a heart probem is looking like the rest of the world.
  • Do we live like we have God living in us?

You can listen to the sermon here or by clicking the link below.  There is an audio glitch at about 10:20 and a very short part of the sermon is missing.  My apologies.
