Word for Today:  November 5

And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.  Mk 11:18

They did not like Him.

  • They did not like what He did. He messed up their Theology.
  • He cleansed the Temple. He reestablished its purpose.
  • He drove out the hypocrites and the game players in church.
  • They did not like what He said. He told them to do stuff they did not want to do.  He pointed out their sin and their hypocrisy.
  • They did not like the way He talked and what He called them. (Thieves, Hypocrites, Serpents, Vipers, Dead Men’s Bones, Whited Sepulchers, Unclean, Full of Iniquity.)
  • They were afraid of Him because He was drawing bigger crowds than they were. (Because when Jesus spoke, things happened.)  Their message was dead, dry and useless.
  • They had form but no fire.
  • They had the Letter but no Life.
  • When they preached, nothing happened.

The sick stayed sick.

The lost stayed lost.

The afflicted stayed afflicted.

The oppressed stayed oppressed.

The poor stayed poor.

The sad stayed sad.

My greatest concern is that nothing will happen in church on Sunday.  However, my greatest assurance is that the Gospel we preach is the Power of God unto Deliverance and that the Word we preach will not return void but will accomplish that which pleases God…  It will.

Just you wait and see
