Calling it what it is

February 6, 2009

The life of Jesus. Read Today: Jesus settles in Capernaum; Matthew 4:13-17: Mark 1:14-15: Luke 4:31-32

Matthew 4:17 BWE
17 From then on, Jesus began to tell God’s word to the people. He said, ‘Stop your wrong ways and turn back to God! The kingdom of heaven is here!’

Jesus was pretty plain with what He had to say. He was not one to mince words at all. Stop what you are doing, The Kingdom is coming.

We need to take this as an example. To long we have tried to talk people out of there sins. I am not saying to stop loving them and speak from that point of view, I am going to say that like Jesus, we have to learn to call sin what it is, sin.

Lean from Jesus. The simple ways are the best.

Read for tomorrow: Fishermen called to be disciples; Matthew 4:18-22: Mark 1:16-20
