VerseD: 2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

2 Corinthians 3:17, ESV

Submitting ourselves to the influence and power of God gives us true freedom to live and want to choose His authority and sovereignty.

VerseD: Matthew 23:11

The greatest among you shall be your servant.
Matthew 23:11, ESV

We should not seek power or authority in the Church. We should be loving each other through service and helping each other.

VerseD: Isaiah 29:13

And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,
Isaiah 29:13, ESV

Do not worry about what the majority says, and traditions can be good. But if anything contradicts His Word or leads people into temptation and sin, it is our fearing men and their teachings.

We must rely on the Word of God.
