A Thought For Today: “Unhinged”
This is a word used on politics these days. The people who are called this, seem to have lost their minds.
You are invited to read the following passage.
24 The Jews gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father’s name speak for me,
26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
30 I and the Father are one.”
31 Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him,
32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”
33 “We are not stoning you for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods’?
35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came — and the Scripture cannot be broken—
36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?
37 Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does.
38 But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”
39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.
40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. Here he stayed
41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a miraculous sign, all that John said about this man was true.”
42 And in that place, many believed in Jesus.
Perhaps you understand the way I have used the word better now. The people have lost it. all that they can think of is that Jesus is an imposter that needs to be snuffed out. They are blinded by the god of this age. (Satan)
All of the people who have been, are being and will be born will all need to decide what to do with Jesus. As believers, we know and share with any who will listen, Jesus is Lord, He is the son of the living God, yes even God himself.
All honor glory, respect love, and thanks are due Hm. Be in constant contact with Him.
