#EllureInspiration : You Are A Guide For The Blind

Romans2:19 If you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth– 21 you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor IDOLS, do you rob temples? 23 You who brag about the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? 24 As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”

Ever wonder why Jesus hung out with sinner instead the priest & those who embody law the of knowledge and truth? The high priest & law embodiers were the very same people blasphemously destroying his name, creating appointed customs, feast, cast systems etc. One of Jesus’ non-violent responses to the strict interpretation of the purity system was in the form of table fellowship. Sharing a meal with someone in 1st century Palestine is an acknowledgment of mutual acceptance.

Jesus did in fact go out of his way to associate himself with “sinners”, the outcast, and the downtrodden not to save them, but as an example of imitatio dei – an imitation of God- a living, breathing image of being “compassionate as your Father is compassionate.” (Luke 6:36)

Although they were high priest it is safe to say they did not think like God but like men. Get behind me, Satan; for you are not thinking of the things of God, but of men.  Mark 8:31-3
This concept does not just apply for priest but for everyone.

Are you trying your best to think like God or are you thinking and acting like man? Are you paying close attention to those who offer you “knowledge and wisdom”? If not, surly you maybe being lead astray.. I challenge you to pay attention to the actions of those around you instead of what they say. When we sit still we will hear God more clear & will realize what has always been in front of our eyes..

Have a Blessed Day!!!
