SCRIPTURE

The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God.”

~John 19:7, NKJV

QUOTE

Define success by your own terms, achieve it by your own rules and build a life you’re proud to live.

~Anne Sweeney

COMMENTARY

Anne Sweeney and many others like her could have been Pharisees and Sadducees who made their own rules. “We have a law” they said to Pilate and by “Our law Jesus ought to die.” Wow! What law are they referring to? They accused Him of blasphemy because He professed to be the Son of God. Either Jesus was the Son of God or He was a liar and a lunatic. There is not capital punishment for a lunatic. The religious Jews had tacked on so many man made laws to the laws of Moses that they had obscured God’s laws with their fabricated laws. They had 365 laws regarding the Sabbath alone: God had only one but this is not their only problem, there were others…

  1. First they were is rebellion against God. They were law breakers.
  2. Secondly, they had re-interpreted the law to suit their life-style and taste. They twisted  and perverted God’s law. Jesus used the 5th Commandment to point this out. They did not honor, nor care for their aging parents.
  3. Finally, they totally and I do mean totally missed the spirit [intent] of the law. God gave the Law for our good, for our welfare but they used it as a club to beat people down.

Are we like the Jews? Have we redefined loving our neighbor as our self? Have we redefined the tithe? Yes, I am aware that Jesus did not tithe; are you aware that He gave 100%. Grace does not nullify the law, grace enables us to fulfill it. The law is not bad and it is not burdensome but it is absolute and you and I cannot change it.

EXTRA

  • Another good day. God is so good. Wonderful weather for fat guys like me. It feels like fall but Big Mama says it’s coming to an end.
  • Great AWANA Offering yesterday, almost $1,000. PTL
  • Had to carry the Titan to Norman’s last night and Ty, Josie and Chloe rode with me. I stopped at Roy’s and got them some shakes and fries and Chloe crammed an entire fry in her mouth and got choked. I almost panicked. Big Mama was following us in the Lexus and I pulled over to get her help but Chloe started breathing again. It scarred the living daylights out of me and Ty. I went into a cold sweat. If you want the full story, ask Josie, not Ty. He makes me sound like mass murderer. When we got back on the road and things calmed down, Ty said, “Big Mama is better with kids than you are Granddaddy.” Then as soon as we got in the car with Big Mama, he told her, “You are better with kids than Granddaddy, he almost choked Chloe to death.” The truth is, he could have stuck his finger in her mouth and got the tator, Josie told him to do just that but he was afraid she would bit his finger. She is prone to bit and she will head butt. I am not going to try to feed her any more tators unless I’ve got adult help.
