But this week as I was reading, I noticed something in between I have never noticed before-just after Jesus enters Jerusalem and after he cleanses the temple. In the same temple in which he overturned tables, he teaches. And of course, people were out to get him. They wanted to find a reason to destroy him. But they couldn’t. Why?
It just made me stop and think about how different my life would be if that were true of me. If, in every area of my life, I would just hold onto the very words of Jesus.
Not my emotions. Not the words of man. But the Word of God.
Would I love others more? Would I serve others more? Would I trust him more? Would I sleep better at night? Would I experience more joy? Would I feel more secure even when my circumstances weren't?
And above all, wouldn't it honor him?
I think the answer is a resounding "yes".
Oh, that I would be a woman that hangs onto the very word of God!
