No loop holing 

 

 Jesus said to the Samarian woman, ‘Go get your husband…’

‘I don’t have a husband,’ she answered.

‘True. You’ve had five though and your living with a man now.’ 

Jesus didn’t mind awkwardness. 

(That was lighthearted but true. And seriously we shouldn’t mind awkwardness either when it comes to standing for what we believe in.)

The woman stood there dumbfounded. Here she had just tried to loophole the Messiah and He called her out on it.

We might think “what in the world? Why would she think she could trick Jesus?”

But haven’t you tried that before? 

I have. I’ve tried to justify sin. I’ve tried to find a way to make it okay in my mind. I’ve tried to twist the Word to meet my needs.

But it doesn’t work that way. No one is capable of molding Jesus into what we want Him to be. Instead we need to allow ourselves to be molded into what He would have us to be.

Loopholing doesn’t help us along. Instead it is a lie that will only slow us down.

Call sin sin and get out of it.

Listen Cautiously

Judges 16:15-30

I Thessalonians 5:22

Questions can turn a persons world upside down. They can even cause you to waiver in your faith.

Samson allowed himself to become weakened by listening to the same question over and over: “where does your strength come from?”

Finally he answered Deliliah. That was the death of him and three thousand other people.

Be careful not to entertain what you know to be foolish questions. Because after a while of being bombarded by them they may seem more legit.

Instead go straight to the Word and cling to it for answers. The Truth will never lead you astray.
