THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD OR OUR TRADITIONS

THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD OR OUR TRADITIONS
(Mark 7:3-9 ) " 3 For the Pharisees and all the Jews , holding the tradition of the elders , if often not wash their hands , do not eat. 4 And they come from the market , except they wash , they eat not. And many other things which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots , and metal utensils , and of tables . May was asked So the Pharisees and scribes : Why do your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders , but eat bread with unwashed hands ? 6 He answered and said unto them hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you , as it is written : 'This people honors me with their lips , but their heart is far from me . 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me , teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God , ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such things you do . 9 You say well ye reject the commandment of God for your tradition . "
What motivates adoration of an entire Mexican country to such traditions ? there is no longer any difference being in the world or be in a Christian congregation and celebrating absolutely all traditions of each people in each region of Mexico with such fervor established forgetting what the word and follow the traditions that our parents taught us without any biblical foundation .( Galatians 1:13-14 ) " 13 For ye have heard of my manner of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God , and wasted it : 14 And in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my nation , being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. "( Colossians 2:8 ) "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and vain deceit , after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
What is Worship ? Immediately also one wonders : Why do we as Christians seldom express our worship to God through concrete ? Or is that just a TRADITION Worship Sunday ?( Matthew 4:10 ) " Jesus said to him , Go , Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God , and serve him only ."(Luke 4:8 ) " Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me , Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God , and serve Him only ."
I would like to propose a new statement : MORE TO TRADITION , THE WORSHIP IS ACTION ! A I mean , (John 4:23,24 ) " 23 But the hour cometh , and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him 24 God is spirit: and they that worship him in spirit and in truth must worship " .
More than a tradition to come every Sunday to the congregation and practice " Worship " Worship to God is vital and fundamental part of our Christian life . NOT only Sunday but DAILY ! (Luke 4:14-19 ) " 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee , and news of Him went out through all the surrounding country .
15 And he taught in their synagogues , being glorified by all. 16 And he came to Nazareth , where He had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as his custom was , and stood up to read . 17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written : 18 Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, He has sent me to heal to the brokenhearted , to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind , to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 to preach the acceptable year of the Lord " .
This passage from Luke immediately follows the passage which tells us that Jesus had been 40 days in the wilderness ( Mark 1:13 ) "And he was there in the wilderness forty days , tempted by Satan , and was with the wild beasts , and angels attended him . " The first thing Jesus performed after this experience in the desert is going to the synagogue for a Declaration of Mission. According to this passage , which originally comes from ( Isaiah 61:1-11 ) , the Mission Statement of Jesus is summarized in the following concrete actions of service:
1) Give good news to the poor.2 ) Heal the brokenhearted .3 ) Touting the captives free .4) Give sight to the blind .5 ) Release the oppressed .To preach the acceptable year of the Lord Jesus' life not only summarizes the time that he spent alone Worshiping the father but lived a life mission Worship by SERVICE neighbor.
" WORSHIP " = IS SERVICE TO GOD ! ( Matthew 20:28 ) "The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many." When visiting a cemetery one of the things that is striking is the writings on the tombstones and the graves of many dead there. For example some say : ' You will always be remembered , were the best father or son - You left too early , etc, etc. . The dedication is the legacy he leaves a person from this world to eternity. ( Acts 13:36 ) "For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God , fell asleep, and was laid unto his fathers , and saw corruption . "
The service to Jehovah God and neighbor is the greatest dedication to one's life . Jehovah God created us to SERVE , not to BE SERVED . It's the Bible tells us that it is better to give than receive (Acts 20:35) "In everything I showed you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said : It is more blessed to give than to receive. "
The commercial world around us daily for us to buy this and that. On the Radio , TV, and newspapers that arrive daily at the house we are told that we have to EAT , EAT , AND EAT . Even many Christians have adopted this mentality of " Consumerism " in the congregations and say if I do not get what I need in this congregation I go to another because I do not get what you need .


I want to challenge you this morning to meditate later in the dedication of your tomb if possible so that you can say : - Victor was a servant of God Alexander worshiped God , serving his generation -Amalia dedicated his life to serving God would like to propose the study of the word SERVE !
ACROSTIC OF THE WORD " SERVE" :S : HOLINESS : And What is Holiness ? It is the disposition , attitude, appearance, shape , circumstance , condition, state or quality of being set apart for the service of the Lord God and the opposite of holiness is CORRUPTION ! To serve God Holiness look for in your life . Maybe you wonder : Who can be holy if we are all sinners ? ... The Bible says ! But at the same time the Bible instructs us ( 1 Peter 1:16) " For it is written , Be ye holy , for I am holy . " Salvation is an ACT and Holiness is a PROCESS . Salvation is a divine act of God by grace , holiness is a process and part of our life of worship to God. Holiness is what God demands in our service to Him
Holiness purifies our hearts . Search for holiness in our lives is to worship God in Spirit and in Truth ! KING HEART ASA : (2 Chronicles 14:15) tell the story of a famous king in the Old Testament. King Asa was king of the southern kingdom Judah and Israel was the northern kingdom . (2 Chronicles 14:2 ) tells us that Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God. Quito gods altars and images ( 2Crónicas33 : 15 ) . Command that all Judah seeketh God , and keep the commandments. Asa was and demolition Even pictures that his mother was at home ! ASA HAD AMBITION FOR SERVING GOD IN HOLINESS ! While Asa HOLINESS maintained an attitude in serving Jehovah God ALL WELL YOU CAME TO HIM .
If you want to serve God need to seek holiness of God in your life. How? Stop corrupt acts as stated in : ( Galatians 5:19-21 ) " 19 are manifest works of the flesh are : adultery , fornication, uncleanness , lasciviousness , 20 Idolatry , witchcraft, hatred , variance, emulations , wrath, strife , seditions , heresies, 21 envy, murders , drunkenness, revelries , and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I did before, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. "
E: EXCELLENCE : Service to God can not be mediocre Excellence in Worship is what God seeks of you . We are called to Success - Excellence and Defeat . We are called to ay offensive not defensive . In the Christian life we are called to play offense , to be front and score goals , speak and testify of Christ and let God that defend us. Service to God is to score goals the enemy! You IF YOU CAN , because ( Filipenses4 : 13 ) " I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me." Guidelines for a life of Excellence :
1) ASSUME responsibility. Refuses to be a person who makes excuses or accuses . The worst thing you can do is to live a life of excuses and blaming circumstances for your condition.2 ) CREE you can change. Do not say " I can not " and start saying " If I can " because " I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me."

3 ) CLARIFY what needs to change in your life , write it down on paper, on the wall, on your computer .... and pray to God to help you .4) DO NOT WAIT until ideal circumstances. Do not say " One of these days " ... Because you're actually saying "None of these days." Prays to God saying this simple prayer : " God help me to be different this week and do better , give me your strength, Amen " . Dear friends, I am not here talking about a course on " Positive Mindset " but I'm talking here about an attitude amended by Jehovah God. Having this attitude changed I can also provide the utmost in worship and service to God.
A: RADICAL : The service of God is with full, nothing is half . There is a passage in the Bible that challenges me a lot: ( Matthew 10:37-38 ) "He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me , and he who loves son or daughter more than me , not worthy of me . And whoever does not take his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me . " This is a BIG challenge ... because I love my parents , children, wife , BUT my love for God must be higher . To work and SERVE GOD needed a RADICAL attitude . Our conduct must be accompanied by an attitude RADICAL and say "Yes, Lord Here I Am , I follow You wherever You want me to go ." What does it mean to be Radical ? It means taking concrete and visible steps to risk and sacrifice to fulfill the will of God. The Worship of God is living a Radical ! And How?
1. First, Jesus indicated to his disciples to be a RADICAL has its PRICE : Jesus told the rich young man ( Luke 18:22 ) " Jesus heard this, he said : You still lack one thing: sell all you have and give the poor , and thou shalt have treasure in heaven : and come , follow me. " To be a RADICAL there is a price to pay. Are you willing to leave SERVE ALL to Jehovah God?
Two . Second, Jesus declared to his disciples to be a RADICAL has RISKS Jesus told his disciples : "There will be places where NO would be welcome." It is very risky to be a Christian in many parts of the world. Are you willing to risk to SERVE GOD ?
Three . Third, Jesus declared to his disciples to be a RADICAL has REWARD Jesus had sent the disciples on their first missionary journey and instructed them to do so in a RADICAL , taking nothing with them . (Luke 10:17-19 ) " And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name. 18And he said unto them , I beheld Satan fall from heaven like lightning. 19He you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall hurt you . " God with The delivery SERVICE RADICAL has REWARD . It is telling that the word :
Read the Bible instead of the newspaper in the morning , is to be RADICALCancel dinner with friends to go to the group home, is to be RADICAL
V : COURAGE - Courage : The kingdom of God does not serve the cowards . Service is only for those with courage and bravery . The Christian life is NOT for sissies . Only for those with bravery and courage facing his situation and tell themselves : " I CAN NOT STAY WELL AS I AM NEED OF IT OH GOD" .
Chapters 4 to 6 of Nehemiah give a picture very difficult for Nehemiah. ( Nehemiah 4:7-8 ) " 7 But it came to pass when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites and the men of Ashdod , that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored and the gaps were beginning to be closed , they were very wroth , 8 and conspired all of them together to come and fight against Jerusalem and hurt " . Because coming Sanballat , Tobiah and Gesem , all enemies , to destroy the work that was in progress. ( Nehemiah 6:14) "Remember , my God, Tobiah and Sanballat according to these things that they made Noadiah remember also the prophetess, and the other prophets who sought to instill fear." But Nehemiah had COURAGE COURAGE and to go forward and the Bible says that did not stop any day and that in 52 days rebuilt the entire wall around Jerusalem . This leads me to examine with you to do when the pressures of life overwhelm you and the enemy attacks you .
1. The First Strike : The Mockery ( Nehemiah 4:1-3 ) . Mockery is the first of the attacks suffered by Nehemiah. The enemy first thing you want to do in your life is making fun of you and put you through ridiculous. The person who starts delivery SERVE God with faces these comments : o You're not ready for this, you have not studied , no good for this or can you do you just worked so hard or is just passing emotion , and you will happen the enemy does not like us to have : o heart and humble spirit or Radical Faith in God or Personal Commitment to God and he will do everything possible so that we do not have BRAVERY and cOURAGE to sERVE God. Nehemiah 'm not intimidated by the ridicule of their enemies but they went and told his HEAD . When the enemy comes against you ...... see and talk to your " Boss" ! Since your boss will take care of the problem for you!
Two . Second attack : The 4 " D " ( Nehemiah 4:7-8 ) . As Nehemiah ignored him to mockery then continued to attack enemies hoping that Nehemiah off guard . The second attack of the enemy into our lives is summarized in the 4 " D " .1) discouragement : Discouragement comes when we lose strength and this is because we are tired . Discouragement is a virus dangers if not treated immediately begins to eat away at our heart and spirit.2 ) fail or LOSE : When we are discouraged and weak or faint faint . Since we have no desire to go to church . We have no desire to SERVE .3 ) stop us now: What Nehemiah's enemies want to do is discourage and then stop the work they were doing in Jerusalem. The enemy will try to do everything possible to stop your joy to follow and serve Christ in life.4) FORWARD : Once you have stopped it is easier to find a detour from the route by which you were traveling . It's like driving a car on a road that is full of holes and bumps and it becomes difficult to manage. The easiest and natural is discouraged, stop and look for a detour.
Jesus said (Matthew 7:13-14 ) " 13Entrad at the strait gate : for wide is the gate, and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14For strait is the gate , and narrow the road that leads to life , and few there be that find it " .

Brothers attacks sure to come into our lives. The birds always fly over our heads but we do deny that nest on our head. Nehemiah was severely attacked by their enemies but when you're trusting in the Lord God has COURAGE COURAGE and to cope with the pressures of life. My brothers how are you courage and bravery these days ? Did you find out the enemy 's desire to SERVE ?
It Active : When the enemy comes kneel! and stick to the word of God.Remember who is on your side : ( Romans 8:31 ) "What then shall we say to this? If God is for us , who can be against us? "Remember that God will give you POWER because he 's on your side .
I: INTEGRITY: The Servant / a of God must walk INTEGRITY to SERVE God. The Worship of God is with Integrity (2 Chronicles 16:9) "For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward him . " God desires that do SERVE with INTEGRITY a PERFECT HEART . Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount said (Matthew 5:8 ) "Blessed are the pure in heart , for they shall see God. " A pure heart is a heart ENTIRETY That means having
INTEGRITY IS :1. Having a sense of responsibility : I mean I 'm going to take responsibility in all areas of my life and not let laziness between me and bring me down .This year my family neglects not going to take responsibility as a father and mother and son inside the house . I will fight for my marriage stability .I will take responsibility within my church . Do not speak over the " church to which I " but in " My Church " .I will take responsibility to tithe and give offerings regularly and not only when I have spare or when I please .
Two . Be an example for others.I get over as an individual and does not justify my condition will fight for change .Doom bury you forever and conformity.I'm eating right and avoiding excessive weight .I seek God daily devotional taking a while .Beloved INTEGRITY SERVICE is vital in God because God continually looking for people whom you can delegate the responsibility to: - Give good news to the poor, heal the brokenhearted , proclaim liberty to the captives , sight to Give the blind , to set at liberty them that are bruised , to preach the acceptable year of the Lord Jesus Christ the Lord wants to bring a high level but it can only be done if you are a person who SERVED wITH INTEGRITY !
R : JOY : ( Psalm 100:1-5 ) Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth , Serve God with gladness: come before his presence with singing . Here are some characteristics of a SERVANT / A GRATEFUL such as Psalm 100 speaks :1. Grateful Servants tasks performed ALL SAME DEDICATION . Many times between servants started saying that I was not cut out for this or that and come to the point when we begin to decide what we want to do and do NOT want to do.
Even the more "sophisticated and spiritual " servants say, "Oh is that God has given me this gift , that's why I can not I do it." Psalm 100 tells us to serve God with joy, recognize that the Lord is God , NOT saying that we should serve Him if we have the will . But to serve Him and Him with a willing heart THANKS to perform all tasks with equal dedication .
Two . Servants serve PLEASING thanked God Paul says this in Galatians about SERVICE : ( Galatians 1:10) " I do not seek the approval of men , but God's approval . I seek not look good with men. If I wanted to look good to men, it would not be a servant of Christ ! " Remember that service to God is not to look good to men, not to look good with Pastor but is done to please God .
Three . Grateful Servants not walk COMPLAINING ( Colossians 3:23) " Whatever you do , do it heartily, as working for the Lord and not to men. " Listen , many people serve , but not all do with a joyful heart . Many serve because they feel a responsibility to do but they do with grateful hearts , do it out of obligation or fear of what others will say . Sometimes it's better not to do something if you are not convinced and do it with a joyful heart . Paul says that everything we do we do of good will , happy , as if we were doing for God himself.
CONCLUSION :Passage of Acts tells us : "For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep . " Let me ask you again :Are you serving God in your generation by the will of God?Are you living a life of Worship that includes all days of the week? I challenge you to SERVE GOD with :HOLINESS : Looking to please Jesus Christ.EXCELLENCE : Giving the best of you to Jesus Christ.RADICAL DELIVERY : In total abandonment to Jesus Christ .COURAGE AND COURAGE : No fear .INTEGRITY OF HEART : With a Perfect Heart .JOY : With joy in your heart, not grudgingly.
