DIG for Tuesday the 23rd of April……Jesus warns us about 1 thing; can you guess what it is…..Matthew 16 v 6

Are you aware that Jesus only ever warned His disciples (and you) about one thing?

This was not the devil; it was not the evils of alcohol or hard drugs; it was not about sexual sin.

Jesus warned His disciples about religion and legalism; in Matthew 16 v 6 he told them to take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.

If you think about this, we have an astounding piece of scripture here.

Jesus warns us about legalism; yet this is what passes as sound doctrine and teaching in the majority of the body of Christ today.

Grace and legalism cannot mix, much like oil and water. Mixture is not conducive to growth and maturity in the believer.

Grace is the only answer; understanding and trust in Jesus and His finished work is what we should be looking for.

Legalism and religion (striving in your own efforts to please God) will not result in growth, but instead will bind you in condemnation and guilt.

Look to Jesus today (grace) and stop looking at your works and your efforts and requirements from other men (religion and legalism).

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I am accepted by You and blessed through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
