The scripture for today, August 25 (8/25), is John 8:25 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
” ‘Who are you?’ they asked. ‘Just what I have been claiming all long,’ Jesus replied.”
They knew who Jesus was. He had made people’s arms and legs grow back, he had fed multiple-thousands on a plate of food, stopped storms and brought lifeless people back to life. They knew! But they kept asking because they wanted a different answer than the obvious one.
Jesus and his apostles tell you certain things in the Bible. Sometimes, you read them over and over, and still don’t get the point. Perhaps you have been blinded by well-meaning religious leaders or family or friends who tell you over and over, “It doesn’t mean what it says.” Are you wanting a different answer than the obvious one?
Dare to read the teachings of Jesus and his apostles with open eyes and open heart. When you read something, just accept it. Your soul is at stake. These are the words of the God of the universe. Do you prefer that God fit your mold, or you fit God’s amazing mold?
