Jude 1:22 Be merciful to those who doubt;

How do you treat people who either say they don’t believe, are doubting their beliefs or have some beliefs which don’t line up with the gospel?

This epistle condemns some for being against Christ, but I love the fact it also says to be merciful to those who doubt!

How can we ever hope to share the gospel unless we are merciful and supportive to people who have some sort of an issue with either the gospel or Christ?

Matthew 8:34 Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region.

A lot of people do not agree with what Jesus taught, ergo, a lot of people may not believe you when you talk about the gospel!

When you read this story, do you side with the people because all the pigs were lost, or do you side with Jesus for saving a couple of people?

Jesus gave the demons one last chance to leave the people alone – they chose to run the pigs into the water after they left the pigs…

Jesus did not drive them into the water! Don’t blame God when things go wrong!

Matthew 8:22 But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

This must have been a very hard thing to hear for this disciple… how could they turn their back on their family to go and learn more about God?

Jesus always had reasons for doing things and saying things; this would have been no exception!

Maybe Jesus knew they would loose track on things and never catch up with Him – we don’t know…

When we ask God for an answer, we must be prepared to listen to the answer in full!

Psalm 103:20 Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.

If the mighty angels are called upon to praise the Lord, then what are we doing about it?

We are lower than the angels so should be praising God even more – we should be obeying Him even more!

The angels knew what the best thing to do was, and that was to praise the Lord.

Let us follow their example and praise His Holy Name!
