I think the thing I find most interesting in these 2 chapters is how easy the people are swayed from believing to rioting. One minute it seems they are all in agreement for the Lord and then some Jewish rebel-rousers come in and they are ready to stone people. But unfortunately I can’t judge them to harshly as I am probably very similar. One moment I think I am on fire for the Lord, knowing exactly the path I am to take and the next minute the wind changes slightly or someone says something and I am once again blowing in the breeze bouncing like a leaf with no place to light.
Verse 22 jumped out at me in Chapter 14 “…”We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.”. Hardships are different things to different people. With that said I have a question for all of you today… what is the hardship that you face? Is it health, faith… what? What is that so easily has you unsure and swaying with the wind?
