Have you ever really thought about why Jesus was ridiculed and crucified on the cross? As God sent His Son here to open up our eyes and ears He was here to show us the Way. Jesus was put on the cross not because He was guilty but because He was innocent but the ones who had positions of control did not like the message of freedom and equality that He delivered. This affected their traditions, their positions, their finances and it affected their stature of intellect.
Rather than humbling themselves to receive the Truth they fought against the Way because of where the message was coming from and it did not fit their human expectations. The spirit of Truth belongs to our Father and it can be spoken from even a donkey if the Lord choose. God teaches us this throughout His Holy Word and He sent His only begotten Son to teach us that this temporary life is not about what we see but about learning how to believe.
With this being said the next time someone comes from another direction to give you some advice may I encourage you to listen to the heart to insure that you are not missing something that needs to be heard. Too many times we miss what God has right before us because we have either become deaf, hard hearted, or blind. We are taught in Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever but if we don’t know how to listen or see then we could be missing the boat…
