"After Him" - 10/09/14 - Matthew 12:1-21, Mark 3, Luke 6

"One Sabbath, Jesus was strolling with his disciples through a field of ripe grain. Hungry, the disciples were pulling off the heads of grain and munching on them.  Some Pharisees reported them to Jesus: "Your disciples are breaking the Sabbath rules!" Jesus said, "Really?"(Matthew 12:1-3)

"The Pharisees walked out furious, sputtering about how they were going to ruin Jesus.
 Jesus, knowing they were out to get him, moved on."(Matthew 12:14-15)

My heart is so sorrowful for the Pharisees of this world.  What a way to live your life, standing, watching, wrangling the Word of God to suit their own beliefs.  For what?  To ruin Jesus.

You can not ruin Jesus.

Nor can you ruin His followers. 

We stand firm in His Truth. 

No matter the Pharisees in your life, stand firm "in" Him.  He is your ultimate Protector and even when it seems things are out of control, they aren't.  All is in His control.  Remember The Cross.  So many gave up hope when seeing Christ hanging there, put into the tomb.  And as always, our ABBA prevailed.  He conquered death.  He conquered sin.  Our Savior rose from the grave!!!!

The Truth always comes out.  What a person is in their heart will show through in their actions, words, motives.  There is never a time to stop praying for others.  To stop loving them through Christ - no matter how they are to you. Sometimes though, when a persons heart is exposed our only choice is to move on. 

Our ABBA has created you for a special mission. a special time.  a special place. 

And sometimes we discover what that is by packing up and moving on to where He leads us.
