Jesus speaks to us through Scripture. If we’re paying close attention Jesus is revealed in the Old Testament. It is surprising to hear the truth spoken by Jesus and we are left focused on what we just witnessed.
However, we too can be unable to receive Jesus’ message. Upon hearing the truth we may not want to believe it because it would mean we need to change our current ways. Our eyes are on Jesus but for the wrong reasons.
We may begin to question what Jesus said. We may start thinking about other matters aside from the point Jesus made. We minimize God to focus on trivial points so that we do not have to face the truth.
Blessed are we who hear Jesus speak to us in Scripture. Who eyes are opened and focused on Jesus. May we keep our gaze on Jesus now that Jesus has sat down on his royal throne. Let us refrain from bringing up frivolous things when we should be in awe of God having just spoken to us.
