Introduce the Kingdom of God The Bible is one grand continuous story. It’s God’s story. The Old and New Testaments are not two completely different stories.

What Would Jesus Undo
The Danger of Hypocrisy Hypocrisy. It’s when hands lifted in praise have been earlier used for sin. It’s when lips proclaiming praise had hours earlier been used for insults. It’s when one’s reputation and one’s character are vastly different. The Pharisees were condemned for their hypocrisy. We read the stories of their encounters with Jesus and shake our heads at how far off they were from the truth without realizing that that is why they were condemned in the first place. Today, we need to evaluate and see if our lifestyle is different than that of the hypocritical Pharisees. Are we living lives of integrity? Read Jesus’ words in Matthew 15:1-9. Jesus condemned the Pharisees because they were more focused on people breaking their traditions than God’s commandments. It infuriated them that Jesus’ disciples did not follow protocol when it came to washing of hands and the manner in which they ate. Jesus was exhausted from their unwillingness to see the big picture.

Maybe you have noticed this or perhaps it has escaped your grasp about me. I almost never use the terms Christian or saved and I typically try and stay away from the word believer when I can help it. Now…maybe you grew up in church and in a tradition where those were like sacred and holy words used to…
