BZN Secret Sauce I - The Base Ingredient

The BASE INGREDIENT in our Secret Sauce is Loving God! • January 7, 2018 • Russ Michaels

The Pharisees substituted rules (613 different man-made commands) for LOVING God. Luke 6:1-5 (NLT) "One Sabbath day as Jesus was walking through some grainfields, his disciples broke off heads of grain, rubbed off the husks in their hands, and ate the grain. But some Pharisees said, “Why are you breaking the law by harvesting grain on the Sabbath?” Jesus replied, “Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He went into the house of God and broke the law by eating the sacred loaves of bread that only the priests can eat. He also gave some to his companions.” And Jesus added, “The Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath.”
