Mark 8:15 “Then HE charged them, saying, ‘Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
From one shore to THE OTHER!
Leaven’s lands are all worth leaving; never holding onto even miles from shore.
Since Sin’s vast territories steal Strength, then clinging dependent to it…steals more.
So cast off Hell’s mooring lines; being drawn then by CHRIST and just by HIM daily!
As HIServant led by CHRIST when I daily cut off all other ties to pick up my cross and just follow HIM,
Devotional: Luke 16:6 “JESUS said to them, “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
Luke 12:1 “In the meantime, when so many thousands of the people had gathered together that they were trampling one another,
…he began to say to his disciples first, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.”
So Leaven is a another name for sin and mooring lines are what ships throw out to secure them to a dock or shoreline.
The Pharisees are that epitome of examples to not become entwined with nor attempt to be like.
As such! Getting rid of the old leaven, our old nature, our past life’s behaviors…that is most important!
The world hourly tries to drag our CHRISTian vessels back to the darkness.
That the horrible strain we feel when we’ve not separated ourselves as GOD commanded.
So cut off all the mooring lines from Hell and just be drawn alone to the shorelines of Heaven by the HOLY SPIRIT within you!
Amen and amen!
