Tuesday’s Verse, 1/10/23

“See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power,
    and he rules with a mighty arm.
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.
 He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:10-11 NIV

Confusing Times

The world is changing so quickly that we never know what trouble tomorrow will bring. Many believe that the answer to our present crisis lies in electing the right politicians. Life in Judea during the life of Jesus was similar in many ways. The Jewish people looked for a political Messiah who would deliver them from the iron heel of Roman occupation and oppression. Nowhere is this clearer than in the following passage:

(Jesus) “began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.” But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Mark 8:31:31-33 NIV (Emphasis mine)

As I read these verses today, Jesus’ words to Peter jumped off the page. Read again what Jesus said: “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

What were the “concerns of God”? – To rescue people from sin and death. What were the human concerns? – To rescue the people from political oppression.

Jesus knew that humanity most needs liberation from the bondage of sin and the consequences of God’s wrath, not from political oppression.”

Jeremiah Study Bible Notes

“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.” John 14:14 NIV

The world needs Jesus. He is the Savior of the world!

Quote of the Week, 1/4/23

If we don’t want a baby, we must take responsibility for our actions before a baby becomes a reality. God has made us capable of having babies, and when one has been conceived, it is His intention for that child to come into the world. The moment the child is conceived, he is a person, and to abort a pregnancy is murder of a human being.”
