Thought for The Day – Saturday 13th March

matthew post

Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

Matthew 22: 29 – 30

How many times have you gotten into a discussion or argument, and then realise or have pointed out to you that you don’t understand or have all the information? The Sadducees are arguing over things in related to the resurrection, and yet they don’t believe in the resurrection. They look for nothing beyond death, and yet we believe and affirm that death is not the end. It is important for us to take time to explore the scriptures, and learn what they are saying to us in this day and time.

Prayer: Gracious God, we are so thankful that you continue to speak and teach us through the scriptures, and that they are a place where we can go and learn about you and learn from you. May we take time to explore and wrestle with scripture, and continue to take time studying it. Amen.

Action: Spend some time each day reflecting on a scripture passage.
