Today's Scripture: "Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?" Jn 8:46
5567. The right answer to the wrong question is wasted time. JG
One of the most profound things about God is how He allows men to approach Him. He did it with Moses. He did it with Abraham and with David, not to mention a host of others. But the fact that I can approach Him is the most amazing of all privileges. The heroes of Faith (Heb 11), did it with humility and fear, but God also entertains fools. They dare question Him and then proceed to hurl insults at Him like they think their opinion matters. Now, that I don't understand.
One thing common to evangelists and disciple-makers is the routine rejection of the gospel by someone with whom they share the gospel. It's happened to most of us. People don't believe God and see no urgency to reconsider their decision. Today I find comfort in how Jesus dealt with people like that. He continued to discuss things, even religious antagonists, until they had the information they needed to repent. When they didn't ask forgiveness, and He knew they wouldn't, He left them to go help someone who wouldn't argue godly things with God.
I thank You, God, for not leaving me to fend for myself.
