March 6th Worship Program
This week we look at how a group of people could transform from being friends of God into God's frenemies. Frenemies describes a person who seems like a friend but then acts like an enemy. The Pharisees are those people in the Luke's Gospel. People who proclaim their love and devotion, yet act in ways that actually oppose the will and purpose of God.
How did they get there? How can we avoid the same mistakes today?
If you have any prayer requests or questions, please us the link in this worship program or the pew cards available in the seat backs in front of you.

Luke #13: Who Need Frenemies
Three questions to start:
What’s the deal with David?
Lev 24:5, 9, 1 Sam 21:1-9
What is the law regarding the Sabbath?
Gen 2:1-3, Exodus 20:8-11
Who are the Pharisee’s?
A good deed poorly received?
Luke 6:1-11, Matthew 12:1-14, Mark 2:23-3:6
How friends became frenemies?
Traditions to share become means to require
Means to require become human rules to enforce
Human rules become more important than God’s intention
Our love for God is revealed in our love for others.
