Our text his Sunday is in Mark 7, about the disciples eating with hands that were defiled (unwashed), and Jesus response to Pharisees and teachers.

********************************************

Many souls fail to find God

because they want a religion which will remake society

without remaking themselves.

 

Fulton J. Sheen

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

 

The minister who is a faithful interpreter of the Word

continues to exercise considerable authority

because of the actual power of the Bible.

Christians today bear little resemblance to those of the first century.

We twentieth-century Christians have become soft.

We have become absorbed with the world,

until it is now difficult to tell the difference between the Christian and the worldling.

The Bible teaches that every Christian is to live a life of self-discipline.

We Christians need to tighten our belts

and harden ourselves for the trials that lie ahead.

 

Billy Graham

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

 

The whole Christian life consists in seeking the will of God

by loving faith and carrying out that will by faithful love.

 

Thomas Merton

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

 

No civil rulers are to be obeyed

when they enjoin things that are inconsistent with the commands of God;

all such disobedience is lawful and glorious.

 

Jonathan Mayhew
