Monday 11-17

"The Bible, and the Bible alone, holds ultimate authority in a Baptist congregation. The Second London Confession of Faith (1677) put the issue plainly: "The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for his own Glory, man's Salvation, Faith and Life, is either expressly set down or necessarily contained in the Holy Scripture; unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by new Revelation of the Spirit, or traditions of men."

--R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

I read this, and I wonder, what things am I carrying because of the traditions of men, rather than basing my life on Scripture alone? Do I live a stressed out life because it is the will of God or because that's just the way we do it?

I want to live today carrying only the yoke which is easy, the burden which is light...the burden of following the Lord Jesus Christ.



Moving toward the Horizon,
