Today, we looked at the Gospel reading which initially looked very challenging. We considered three things from in it. We first looked at how it demonstrates the loving burning heart of Jesus. Jesus desired that the wrongs of this world be made right. The only way that judgement could come was through him going to the Cross. He took the punishment we deserved upon himself and he did so willingly and out of sheer love. He knew that this would involve an immersion in suffering as Gods judgement fell upon him. And yet he longed for that time to come that we might be reconciled to God. Secondly, we looked at how following Christ can bring division. Yes, Christ came to bring peace, but following Christ and being counter-cultural can also bring with it division. However, we noted that it is important to stand up for Gospel truths. Thirdly, we considered how the passage encourages us to make peace with God. Each of us will have to give account for how we live our lives, it is best to make sure that we are found to be trusting in Christ and seeking his blessing. This is the only way to peace and everlasting life.
