"Ritual vs Compassion"

Posted by Pastor Marvin J. Owens, Jr on

Here are our main takeaways from tonight's class, "Rituals vs Compassion," studying Matthew 12:9-14.

  • Rules and regulations should never be prioritized over compassion and ministry. If we are Christ’s disciples, then faithfulness to His mission should be our top concern.
  • Everyday is the Lord’s Day, and worship should never be limited to one day. Jesus’ ministry shows us that God’s presence is not limited to any one place, space, or day. Worship and service should be the way we live daily.
  • A complete commitment to serving Christ will often result in rejection. Your commitment will often be seen as a threat to those who want to maintain power and control. semper fidelis! Stay faithful!
