In Luke 11:37-54 Jesus teaches us about the nature of true obedience by way of contrast with the false obedience of the Pharisees and Lawyers.

As people who are confessionally committed to the absolute authority of God’s Word in all questions of faith and practice, we would do well to ask ourselves if there are areas in our lives where that commitment is little more than lip service.
