God’s Word: It Does a Body Good

Week 5: Truth versus Tradition, part 3

Mark 7:1-23

 1. How do we keep God’s Word above the rituals of tradition?

  Appreciate it as the final and ultimate authority in our lives.

  Appreciate it as being complete and sufficient for every issue.


2. How do we keep guard against the risks of tradition?

  Grow in the knowledge of the word of God and the God of the word. (I Peter 2:2)

  Know why what we do “out of habit.” (Mk. 7:6-7)

  Show that we control our traditions and not vice versa. (Mk. 2:22-28)


3. How do we keep good balance about relevant tradition?

  Tradition is meant to connect us to the past but not lock us in the past.

Tradition can give meaning relationship, but it is no substitute for meaningful relationship.

Traditions are to point us back to the heart of God and not keep our hearts from God.
