Who Will You Choose?

I believe God discovered that people’s hearts were so stuck that they were going to make the wrong choice.  And, God being God, God figured out a way to work with THAT. God figured out a way to work with the most horrible, awful choice people could make.  God figured out a way to work with Jesus’ crucifixion. God figured out a way to turn worldly sin into Godly victory. That’s what I believe. And…God can STILL do that….regardless of what we choose.

What is Truth?

Y’all, there is ALWAYS a truth.  As followers of Jesus, followers of God, our job is to always, always, ALWAYS do our best to be a part of the truth, to always do everything we can to discern and reveal the truth, even to be honest about when we’re not 100% sure what the truth is.  Our job is to be a part of the truth, to reveal the truth, instead of MANIPULATING the truth, creating and spreading a FALSE TRUTH, to get what we want.

Easier Than Testimony

Y’all, this scene John describes, this scene of two interrogations, it’s one of the best known scenes in the gospels.  It’s the scene that DIRECTLY led to Jesus’ crucifixion. And it’s the scene that describes THE FAILURE of humanity that led to Jesus’ crucifixion.  Which gets me wondering every time I read it: why do we keep allowing the scene to repeat itself over and over and over again? Haven’t we learned?
