Walking With Jesus - Tuesday
Jesus continues his week of Passover in Jerusalem. Tuesday is a day of teaching and parables. Jesus teaches his disciples about his return, future events, and the destruction of Herod’s temple. (Matthew 21-24). The Pharisees are following closely and listening, hoping to entrap Jesus in some way. Their motivation is clear: they hope to find a reason for which they can push for his execution. I would describe it as a day of “deadly/high stakes cat and mouse”.
We must never forget that sin is not our friend. Sin is the enemy of all christians. Although Satan may paint things as inviting, exciting and attractive, the end result is always the same: spiritual death. Let’s take the example of Jesus and always avoid it’s trap.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
