"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Follow The Law Of Love

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, November 5, 2017

We know the Pharisees were arch-villains in the gospels, but it’s surprising that these enemies of Jesus actually had some things in common with him. Both wanted to reform their religion, and both saw personal faithfulness to be the way to that renewal. For the Pharisees, though, this effort meant zealous observance of Jewish religious law, while for Jesus it meant rethinking that law in a whole new way. The Pharisees allied themselves with those in political power. Jesus, on the other hand, was a victim of politics, and His authority was a conduit for God’s healing love, not a means of control. How can you exercise your authority for good?
