From Earning to Receiving

March 20, 2022


Luke, chapter 13, tells the story of when some people
came up to Jesus and told him about
a group of Galileans who were brutally murdered by Pilate,
their blood spread on the offerings that they were bringing to God.

Jesus had been teaching about God’s love and forgiveness.
He also had been teaching about God’s judgment of sin.
In parables, in lectures, in answers to questions,
Jesus taught them over and over, in different ways,
to be ready, to be watching,
and, most of all, to repent, to turn towards God,
because the day of the Lord was coming,
and no one – no one – is able to save themselves.
