Thursday, Fourth Week of Lent

For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me, because he wrote about me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words? John 5:46-47

Jesus said a mouthful, if we do not believe in Moses' writings, such as the commandments, and his writings, how then are we to believe in his words also. So true, a statement Jesus made. If we think about it, what is written, and the commandments that God has given through Moses, to prepare us, to guide us. Yet through those years much has happened, so that when Jesus finally comes, they see his many works yet they still do not believe. Should Jesus come to us today, would we be any different? We just about threw away the commandments, in favor of our own wills. Would we treat him any different than the one's he already tried to convert. Would we accept his word as the word of God. Do any of us sit and think about what it would be like to have Jesus in our midst, to hear him talk, to know that his word is truth. How we forget that he is here with us, in our Tabernacles waiting for us to listen to his most precious word. Are we capable of believing! Or do we continue to persecute and condemn him, as they did so long ago.
