Jesus had a lot to say to the Religious Scholars of His day. He still does. Do we really think reading the Bible constantly saves us? Is that where our life comes from? Are we missing the forest for the trees?
Jesus is standing right in front of us. He is giving us life right now.
You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you’ll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me! And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren’t willing to receive from me the life you say you want. John 5:39-40 (The Message)
How much do I need to budget for groceries? Let me consult with my Father.
Should I go to the party I was invited to after church? Let me consult with my Father.
Should I work in this ministry or serve in that way? Let me consult with my Father.
I do nothing without consulting the Father…… John 5:30a
