We so often hide our hearts and minds in the full light of day. We don’t need to “hide in the dark”.
I don’t know (maybe I do – and maybe I don’t)
Again they came to Jerusalem. As he was walking in the temple, the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders came to him and said, ‘By what authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?’ Jesus said to them, ‘I will ask you one question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Did the baptism of John come from heaven, or was it of human origin? Answer me.’ They argued with one another, ‘If we say, “From heaven”, he will say, “Why then did you not believe him?” But shall we say, “Of human origin”?’ – they were afraid of the crowd, for all regarded John as truly a prophet. So they answered Jesus, ‘We do not know.’ And Jesus said to them, ‘Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.’ Mark 11:27-33
Don’t mess with the Master! Because we don’t have to:
A: But you believe in Love, don’t you?
God Soft Hands Jesus is the Master. He knows who is hiding, what they are hiding, and why they are hiding (just like he did for me and you – or have we forgotten). We don’t.
GSHJ asks the best questions – at the right time – in the perfect way – for each (just like he did for me and you – or have we forgotten). We don’t.
By whose authority?
Because the bible, theological training, the church/pastor/minister all tells me to …
Don’t mess with the Master! Because we often do:
A: You must believe in God. He is the answer.
B: And what do I find when I find your God?
A: Why you find Love!
B: I found Love a long time ago.
A: But not God’s love – you must be saved to find God’s love!
B: How is that a “better love”?
And now we are arguing about Love … really?
I don’t want to.
