ANOTHER SABBATH SCANDAL
Today at Highland Baptist Church, Pastor Danny Gardner's sermon was from Luke 13:10-17. Jesus heals a woman on the Sabbath. This woman had been crippled for 18 years, but there she was, at the synagogue, on the Sabbath, to worship God. Not at home using her severe disability as an excuse not to go and worship God. Then the synagogue leader rebuked Jesus for healing the woman on the Sabbath instead of praising God that a miracle had been performed. Then Jesus says that the leaders are hypocrites because they do work on the Sabbath, and that work is not as important as healing someone. The leaders hate the message because they were humiliated, but the people are delighted because Jesus is freeing them from a false religion. Don't have such a high opinion of yourself and such a low opinion of God that you would question what he does.
