Matthew 23:25–26 (ESV)

5th Woe of 7

25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.


The Pharisees are more concerned with outward religious observances than with the heart and its unending battle with sin.  The saying that fits is to do as they say, not as they do!  They place laws and regulations as more important than the “heart”.  They demand perfection, yet they are doing as they please.  Thank the Lord that we are not saved by our actions, but by faith.  We still are to repent and to turn from sin, but we are saved by faith.


I pray: O Lord, help me to believe and to trust in the faith you give me, not my works.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
