Nope. This entry will definitely not reach the usual five hundred words. I can choose to put this in my other blogs but sometimes some things in our cyber life we have to practice precaution. Any message delivered via the network can produce all kinds of speculation.
It has always amazed me that the person we know as Jesus Christ lived a life that is so controversial because He does break all the ideals of a justice-deliverer.
The pharisees and the normal men seem to always have had this barrier of who is filthy and who is not. And Christ’s stories and parables would always shame the proud onlookers and embrace the unproud with healing and hope.
Them who have had access to His words seemed to have take it to a legalistic application while those who seldom did and mostly just listened seem to be more convicted of their sins and are repentant.
It has been a confirmation and affirmation to me lately – that no matter how much you know, you cannot be boastful about it, hence, let pride seep in to your veins. Another affirmation is that even though one person may not have had the longest time spent reading the word time will come when they will be arrested by the story of the cross, see themselves, grab the grace and have far better progress as a Christian than that of those who declare themselves knowledgeable. But you cannot excuse yourself from not knowing or getting the chance to know. If you are living in a free country it is one opportunity God gave you to be in tune with Him.
Psalms 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
I don’t think He is pertaining to those who were romantically brokenhearted.
