The Pharisees taught many extra-biblical things that they believed made them right before God. Man made traditions and cooked up ceremonies. They all gave an appearance of being in close relationship with God, when in reality, they were as far from God as you could imagine. How often are you and I like this? How often do we convince our family, fellow believers, our co-workers and even ourselves that we have a right relationship with God, when in fact we do not. In today’s message, Jesus gets to the core of this issue by addressing the heart of the Pharisees sin and the absence of a genuine, love relationship with God. Ultimately, we can put on a good show but Christ calls us to repentance and into a deep, meaningful relationship with Him.
