02 May Colossians 2:16; Matthew 22:37-40
16 Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day—
37 And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
Man-made religion is complicated, where Christianity is simple. With religion, you must do things like wash your hands; between every course. The water is kept in a certain container; in a certain place; in a certain way. You wash; not with fingers hanging down, but up, or you are a sinner. Jesus taught that all our faith is wrapped in one thing; love. He took 10,000 laws and reduced them to two commandments. Jesus has set us free. Do you know how to flesh out Legacy’s mission statement? “Living the word” means; to love God, love people, and make disciples. How are you doing living the word?
