Astonishingly Jesus

“And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all people were astonished at his doctrine.” Mark 11:18 KJV

The Spirit of truth and love, so contrary to a sinful people, yet so complete. The scribes and chief priests were so convicted knowing they had no righteousness within themselves and rather being humbled and seeking God, they wanted to destroy the very One who came to convict and to save. On the cross as He hung to die, He interceded on their behalf, saying, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34. Agape love and truth once again in His final moments, ever bridging the gap created by sin. Will you cross over from sin and death to life eternal and allow His blood to cleanse you from all sin? Will you bury the sinfulness of your past and the sinfulness of others by forgiving as He has? Will you allow His resurrection power to make you new this day? I hope so…
