Certainty in love seems like a pipe dream, doesn’t it? How can you really know what someone is feeling? How can you see the doubts?
Happy Valentine’s Day! It might seem a little odd to have a day set aside for love. Should’ve we love everyone all the time? Well, let’s go with it. I am married to a beautiful woman – and I wrote her a card expressing my love. That really wasn’t that hard. But what I’m not sure about is what to get for the neighbor who is mean to me? What do I get for the guy who just cut me off on the interstate? How about that guy at work who’s spreading rumors about your work performance? Maybe this isn’t so easy after all. This Sunday we’re back in the Gospel of Matthew watching Jesus redirect our thoughts – this time on the topic of love.
“Your’re just the worst!” Seriously, as each of stands before our God, we can honestly say these words. The reason is that we don’t need to compare ourselves to each other. We compare ourselves to God. God is the only one who can save us. We held our church picnic yesterday. God blessed us with a wonderful day!
We continue our series Cross Examination by asking the question, “Are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” This question cuts through to the heart of the one who would betray Jesus and to the heart of our Savior.
