So much on page 174 that it would take several pages of sharing. I will shorten it up. How often I am grateful for the good things and how often do I compromise the really good things of knowing and following Christ 100 percent.
Love this story and not really put two and two together concerning the man's sin and turning Jesus into the Jewish authorities. It all came together for me after I read the whole chapter again. It is a good lesson that you can read the bible over and over again and still miss some things or the Spirit will teach you something different often. That is another reminder for me to keep in the Word.
John 5:23 says, "that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him."
We honor the son when we concern with honoring and obeying the Lord instead of concerning ourselves with the world. It is is for me to get caught up in the world because it is here and now and at times God and his judgment seem distant. I have to remind myself to live life in the present with eternity in mind.
