Matthew 27:21 & 26
“The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that i release unto you? They said, Barabbas”
“Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.”
After a good chat with one of my brothers I began to couple that conversation with other thoughts. Namely a few words rattling around in the ole grey matter from Steve Quayle from a recent radio broadcast…”there is no political salvation”. Very true indeed. It appears that some in our country continue to seek a “national” salvation to our problems when the answer has already been given both in redemption of Jesus Christ and early the examples of the early church.
“Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”
The early church didn’t seek office, or try and work through the political landscape to change the world. To the contrary they went as the Spirit led them into the world and they turned the world upside down doing so. A wonderful point and call, valid even in this day. Occupy till I come.
