Good morning all-
Well it's Good Friday and we are approaching Easter. I will be continuing on with what Jesus said for at least a few more weeks. I feel God is calling us to remember what was said, instead of living by interpretation.
It's my opinion that we forget what He said and why it was stated to begin with. I found this Scripture under the one I put up yesterday. It just reminded me that Jesus was condemned by man for healing, loving people and showing mercy on the Sabbath. Religious leaders were scared of Him and could not see what was in front of them. I don't want to be like that, do you?
My life is His and although we must understand the commandments and try to live by them, Jesus was grace personified. Thank you Jesus! I need grace as much as the next person. I fell into gossip for a moment yesterday and had to ask for forgiveness this morning. O, how I hate the flesh. But that's the point, right? Jesus came for the Jew, the Gentile and all sinners. He knew what man was capable of and of course, we bowed to the flesh and crucified an innocent man. Jesus died for us and that's what today represents all over the world. He took the condemnation of man to grant grace to the sinner. He was judged unfairly by man and died on a cross to prove to mankind His worth. And today, people hate Christians because of our Savior. Pray with me today that the darkness would be lifted from the pious and that the educated will see the validity in Jesus. He washed our sins and gave His life for us. Let's give Him ours. Be well my sisters and know that I am praying for a revival!
Jesus said to them, “I did one miracle, and you are all amazed. Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a boy on the Sabbath. Now if a boy can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing a man’s whole body on the Sabbath? Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.” (John 7:21-24 NIV)
