Romans 13:8-10, ["... 8 Do not owe anyone anything, [a] except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. (A) 9 The commandments: You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not covet, (B) (C) and if there is any other commandmentÂ€Â”all are summed up by this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (D) (E) 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Love, therefore, is the fulfillment of the law..."] When Jesus came to Galilee he did not do so many miracles because those in his home town just did not think he was anything special. Was this not Mary's and Joseph's son they had come to know and there were there his brothers and his sisters...? 21 Then He said to them again, "I'm going away; (A) you will look for Me, and you will die in your sin. (B) Where I'm going, you cannot come." (C) 22 So the Jews said again, "He won't kill Himself, will He, since He says, 'Where I'm going, you cannot come (D) '?" 23 "You are from below," He told them, "I am from above. (E) You are of this world; (F) I am not of this world. (G) 24 Therefore I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I am [He], [a] you will die in your sins...]" And certainly his own did know or consider him 'from above' like he proclaimed. And those in Galilee must of love their fellow neighbors in their town and must of know everyone who lived there. But how to deal with this person claiming to be the son of God?... And if we hate a person in the world, it sin and we can repent of it and go on, but if we don't have a taste for Christ and his message and his word, we have, I have a greater problem! 1Samuel 2:25, ["...25 If a man sins against another man, God can intercede for him, but if a man sins against the LORD, who can intercede for him?" (A) But they would not listen to their father, since the LORD intended to kill them..."] And if I hate God's prophet well poor prophet, but if I hate God then it is a poor me... May you be blessed. Amen. thbg
I wrote this comment in a far place to this same blog:
[".. 11 Besides this, knowing the time, it is already the hour for you to wake up from sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over, and the daylight is near, so let us discard the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk with decency, as in the daylight: not in carousing and drunkenness; not in sexual impurity and promiscuity; not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no plans to satisfy the fleshly desires..."]
And I did not want to think that God was saying this to me or better to us! I had forgotten what time it was! It was no longer affordable to become offended and offend each other. And the time get closer to Christ return and no longer time for petty fits...
I listening to Mexican ballad song about how a dad felt when he got a call from his son to come and take him out of jail! And he was broken hearted and blamed himself, and so he decided to do something about it! I'm in this world jail of sin! God hurry! Tarry not! Bring us out!!!...
May you be blessed. Amen.
