Do Not Feed the Animals

Re:Verse reading–Luke 23:1-27, 32-49 (day seven)

This crowd is nonstop.  They begin by accusing Jesus with lies (v.2), and keep going through the whole chapter.  They insisted Jesus deserved death even though the officials called him innocent (v.5, 18, 23).  Vehemently they demanded Jesus pay, and when they didn’t get what they want they yelled louder.  The whole scene is infuriating.

The unjust hate makes you want to take a stand for Jesus, but never engage the enraged.  When people behave like animals they cannot reason.  If you inject yourself you will be bitten.  The best thing you can do is engage with Jesus like the thoughtful criminal at Jesus’s side.  You will know much more peace in life if you will engage with Jesus instead of engaging the mob.

  1. True freedom comes when we disengage with those who conducts wrongdoing to God. The price of our freedom from sins was paid by Jesus’ blood. That is all we neeed to remember and to continue to engage others to be on the side of Jesus!

    We must love Jesus more for what He endured as the price for our freedom from sins.
