Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This verse let me think of the reason for the failure of the Pharisees: They did not have a heart of humble seeking, and instead stubbornly held on to their notions and imaginations, neither seeking nor investigating the new work the Lord Jesus did. Eventually they used the Lord Jesus’ not keeping the laws as an excuse to condemn, resist and even crucify the Lord, and thus were cursed and punished by God. It can be seen that how important it is for us to have a heart of humble seeking. Even if we do not understand, we shall not reach a verdict. Instead, we should seek and wait for God’s leading with a humble attitude. Now is already the last days, if anyone tells us the gospel of the second coming of the Lord, we should seek and investigate humbly, not blindly resist. Only in this way can we become the one whom the Lord commends.

Share some words of God: “God seeks those who long for Him to appear. He seeks those who are able to hear His words, those who have not forgotten His commission and offer up their heart and body to Him. He seeks those who are as obedient as babes before Him, and do not resist Him.
