The Trap of Legalism
In this passage, we see how the Pharisees fell into the trap of legalism. If we aren’t careful, we too can look to our own obedience as a means of gaining favor before God. Let’s remember that Jesus was the only One who could perfectly obey and our favor is found in Him alone. May we look to Jesus and His righteousness alone as our hope of salvation and let’s obey God not to gain favor, but because we already have favor before Him through Christ.
Scripture: Mark 2:23-3:6
