The Beast In Me

Scripture:
Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23 (NIV)

1 Now when the Pharisees gathered  to him, with some of the scribes who
had come from Jerusalem,

2 they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands
that were defiled, that is, unwashed.

3 (For the Pharisees and all the
Jews do not eat unless they wash their  hands properly, holding to the
tradition of the elders,

4 and when they come from the marketplace, they do not eat
unless they wash. And there are many other traditions that they observe,
such as the washing of cups and pots and copper vessels and dining couches)

5 And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why do your disciples not
walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with defiled hands?”

6 And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it
is written,
“‘This people honors  me with their lips,
 but their heart is far from me;


7 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of
men.’
8 You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.”
What Defiles a Person

14 And he called the people to him again and said to them, “Hear me,  all
of you, and understand: 15  There is nothing outside a person that by  going
into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are  what
defile him.”

21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil
thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,

22 coveting, wickedness,
deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness.

23  All these evil
things come from within, and they defile a  person.”


Song For Reflection:
"The Beast In Me"

Nick Lowe, 1994
-Performed by Johnny Cash on  American Recordings, 1994


The beast in me
Is caged by frail and  fragile bars
Restless by day
And by night rants and rages at the  stars
God help the beast in me

The beast in me
Has had to learn  to live with pain
And how to shelter from the rain
And in the twinkling  of an eye
Might have to be restrained
God help the beast in  me

Sometimes it tries to kid me
That it's just a teddy bear
And  even somehow manage to vanish in the air
And that is when I must  beware
Of the beast in me that everybody knows
They've seen him out  dressed in my clothes
Patently unclear
If it's New York or New  Year
God help the beast in me

"The Beast In Me"

Pastor Josh Lickter

9/9/2012

 

Where does evil come from? 

The heart of humanity.

The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.  -- Genesis 6:5

But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.  -- Jeremiah 7:24
 

The Good News

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  -- John 3:16
