My Title: Jesus, HEAL the Deaf and Mute Hearts

 

My Verse: 37

37 "And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, 'He has done all these things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.'"
 

My Response:


Jesus is WORTHY of our HEART'S FULL affection and devotion.


The problem with religious tradition is that, even though they are usually born out of honest dedication, good intention or holy zeal, the action will eventually remove God from the throne. WE think that WE can please God by OUR actions... which means, those that are BEST at doing the traditions are BEST in God's eyes. It will also lead us to think that we can EARN God's favor.


The reality that Jesus taught can still exist WHILE the heart is terribly sinful. We can have the appearance of holiness while being completely unholy because we are using man's unit of measurement.
