Human Traditions vs Following Christ

By
Real Estate Agent with Equity Fifty Five Realty, LLC

Colossians 2:8 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

Beware of Requirements Invented by Humans

 8Be careful not to let anyone rob you of this faith through a shallow and misleading philosophy. Such a person follows human traditions and the world’s way of doing things rather than following Christ.


Jesus never approved of putting the traditions of men above the Word of God (see Mark 7:1-13). What about you? Are you willing to change your life in order that God may use you, or had you rather hold onto your traditions? There are three qualities I believe every Christian should exhibit: availability, expendability, and adaptability. We need to be walking with the Lord so closely that we ought to be ready to witness at a moment’s notice. It is God’s ability and your availability. It is His power and your personality. It is His work and your witness. That’s God’s plan!

We need to always be ready to give a reason for the hope that lives within us with gentleness and respect!
Are you ready, and willing? If so, then God will give you the perfect opportunity! Ask Him today to speak His Truth, and the Gospel message with love and power thru your lips and life! What better time than Easter to invite your neighbors and friends to church.

I have been in a church or two where they elevated certain church practices to be biblical, which in fact wasn't accurate !

Paul - good point. I think an important way to determin if a tradition is right is to compare it to the Word of God. If its right, it will not conflict.
