Today's Reading: Matthew 15
Key Verse: Matthew 15:9
And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.
The third commandment (Exodus 20), "You shall not take the Name of the Lord your God in vain," includes worship not founded solidly on a true understanding of God's Word.
Moses, upon his descent from Sinai, discovered the people worshipping with the practices of the religion of Egypt.
Satan went into the religion business because he wanted to be worshipped. What Lucifer failed to receive in Heaven, he convinces men to invent on earth.
The ancient temples of Egypt were an effort to copy the approach to God in Heaven with "the god of this world" depicted by an image in the inner chamber.
Daily, daily, daily read God's Word.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Dear Lord Jesus, I worship God in Your Name with an ever-increasing understanding of the Scriptures. I read, mark, inwardly digest the written Word, the Bible. You promised the "Spirit of truth " (John 16:13) will guide me into all Truth. I ask now for that guidance as I meditate on Your Word. Amen!
