"We -In Him - Never Forgotten" - 10/30/17 - Matthew 15-17

"Later His disciples came and told Him, "Did you know how upset the Pharisees were when they heard what You said?"  Jesus shrugged it off. "Every tree that wasn't planted by My Father in Heaven will be pulled up by its roots.  Forget them. They are blind men leading blind men."(15:12-14)

"Forget them."

My heart hurts just reading these words.

"Forget them".

Not spoken by Jesus because He isn't of Love, but because He knew their hearts.  He knows what is within us.  He tells us what is in our heart come forth in our words and actions. 

My heart hurts when I am as the Pharisees. 

My heart is overwhelmed by His forgiveness, His grace, His mercy which have cleansed me of those moments.  Only because of Him am I able to confess, repent, and continue striving to be more like Him. 

Him - whom I am deeply, madly, head-over-heels in love with.

How thankful I am knowing, without doubt, we "in" Him will never, ever, ever hear these words spoken to us from our ABBA.

 For "in" Christ - we are His.  He is ours.  Forever.
