CrossPointe,

If you missed last Sunday’s message by Wayne on Mark 7:1-13, I encourage you to listen to it here. It was a very helpful reminder of how prone we are to try and make ourselves clean rather than trusting in Jesus who alone can make us clean.

This week we’ll look at Mark 7:14-23, which really continues last week’s theme of religion vs. the gospel. In this text, Jesus declares that our real problem is not defilement from the ‘outside,’ which can be dealt with by self-improvement efforts, but rather our defilement is an ‘inside’ heart condition that can only be dealt with by a radical intervention of grace. Take some time to read and think on the text before Sunday. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Grace and peace,

Brad
