July 7 – Give Up Human Beliefs & Promote Only God’s Law

Daily Bible Life

Jesus Christ violated all of the unpopular Jewish traditions that contradicted God’s law. He disrupted the temple merchants, and also, allowed people to sing Hosanna to his praise. Those actions outraged opposing traditionalists, who were determined to kill him. However, they had no choice than to wait for the Son of God to fully manifest his ministry as God preordained. Some examples of the actions of Jesus that triggered bitter jealousy and opposition from his enemies are as quoted, “… So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:

“Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!” And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?” So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.” Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’” Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’?”(Matthew 21:6-16).

 

Lesson:

Children of God must know how to draw a line between a human tradition and God’s divine law. Human traditions are not the same as God’s law. God’s rule of law is supreme, therefore, all believers must ensure to take it as the highest authority. That is, a good Christian is expected to reject any teaching or practice that contradicts the standards accepted by the Bible. For example, our society may portray its liberal view on homosexuality and consider it acceptable; however, the Bible declares it as sin! (Romans 1:24 -27; Mark 10:6-9).

As true believers, we must obey God’s rule, even when the world has rejected it! Jehovah will honor his children that obey his commandments, as has preserved his best treasures for us in heaven. In addition, Christians must understand that we have God’s unbeatable power that dwells in us. Demons will submit to our authority, and whatever we declare on earth shall be honored in heaven (Matthew 18:18). It is, therefore, important that we exercise our authority over spiritual entities that may be attempting to influence us against the will of God. Since our body belongs to God, we must not yield to the desires of Satan!

 

Prayer:

Dear Jesus Christ, I praise you for coming to earth to set all humans free! Every buying and selling spirit and human traditions are now forced into subjection under your authority! I declare that I am a believer of Christ, and I proclaim my victory over any buying and selling spirits that may want to influence me! I receive God’s power to reject heresy and uphold God’s righteousness. From now on, the power of God that rules me will help me prevail in all situations! Thank you, Jesus Christ, for being there for me at all times! Amen.
