Scripture: The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. Mark 1:22 (NIV)
Do you enjoy playing games? I do. One of the games I enjoy is called Uno. Have any of you ever played Uno? easy to play, but before you play, read the rules so that you will know how to play the game.
Who makes up the rules for a game? person who makes up the game The one who created the game, makes rules for the enjoyment of all who play the game. If someone doesn't follow those rules, it takes away from the enjoyment of the game, doesn't it? Have you ever played with someone who won't follow the rules?
There are rules that we must follow in the game of life too. Look, I have the rulebook right here. Who wrote the rules? God did. God created life and He wrote the rules. Just as the creator of a game makes rules to ensure the enjoyment of all who play his game, God wrote these rules so that all who live life might enjoy it the way he intended for them to enjoy it.
God made the rules and He showed us how to follow the rules. Now He wants us to follow the rules so that we will enjoy life the way He intended it to be.
