This week, Pastor Michael Hodge continued in the book of Mark, looking at chapter 7, vs, 14-23. This verse is incredibly important in the Bible, and Jesus couldn't have emphasized it more. In verses 14-16, he says to listen to him, and to understand him. In fact, when the disciples didn't get the meaning, Jesus told them that they were dull in their understanding...pretty strong words! What Jesus was teaching is that what comes from the heart isn't because of what one eats, or from the outside of the body. It comes what is natural inside the heart. Ultimately, what makes a person sin, or defiles himself, is what comes out of a person. Listen to this challenging sermon today.
Also, we had the children do special music today, and Molly Blobaum did the children's sermons. She's got some riddles for the kids today...see if they and the adults can figure it out!

And we hope you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
