Friday’s Message in Music
This time of year when we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus is definitely beautifully blessed for any who know Jesus Christ personally as Savior and Lord. The infant in the manger was the world’s Messiah— please enjoy this Scripture and the song. ♥Streim
Colossians 1:13-23 “For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities –all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach – if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.”
Streim’s Saturday Sharing
Abiding by God’s Word or Following the Teachings of Men ?
If someone walked up to you on the street during this season and asked you “What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?” What would your response be?
Mark 7:1-9 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches. Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?” He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ “For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men–the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.” He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.”
Far too many “church folk” are following those who have crept in unawares, or went out from us and are falsely teaching a gospel of error. I will implore you once again— everything you hear or see that is supposedly coming from God; pick up the Word of Truth/Holy Bible and search, study, seek, ask for the Holy Spirit’s discernment. If the teaching you’re exposed to is NOT confirmed in the Scriptures, take heed then run… Your soul is at stake! ♥Streim
