Sermon: “Ordinances and Statutes”
Theme: We are called to learn and observe the law of God so that we may practice what is at the heart of the relationship God desires we develop.
Purpose: To understand how to observe the law of God wisely.
Scriptures: Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-9 Moses calls the people to observe the statutes and ordinances from God.
Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23 The disciples are confronted by Pharisees regarding their practices.
Questions: What do we mean when we speak of the “law of God?” In what ways are we obligated to observe the laws of the Old Testament? In what ways are we not bound by the old laws? How do we know the difference between what was in he past to educate and shape God’s people and what we need to observe today? How should we respond to those who continue to call for obedience to Levitical laws? How does God want us to live today in righteousness?
