Leviticus 19-20, Matthew 26:36-75
It’s humbling and eye-opening to read Jesus’s prayer to God, “if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will but as you will.” I strive to put God’s will in front of my own like that
It’s difficult to read about not getting tattoos or considering homosexuality an “abomination”. Are there some parts of the Bible that are just outdated, there are other parts about not having a beard that seem a bit ridiculous, too.
God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Worldly view vs God’s view. That is the conflict. Which are you influenced by?
I can’t speak into the homosexuality laws, as I’ve never been able to have a clear answer on it— but I’ve heard pastors talk on the ceremonial law vs moral law if the bible. That helped clear up a lot of my questions (as I have a lot of tattoos, but all in relation to God, or family). Researching that may help you out!
Different culture and era, not outdated.
Catching up! Love all the discussions! So helpful in Leviticus- I looked up mixing the seeds and got this off “got questions”, it’s Deuteronomy, but I think the laws repeat-
Also Matthew verses are so hard, the sufferings and all the disciples falling away – all Christ suffered for us
not as i will but as You will -ellie
Would that remembering “I am the Lord, your God” would be enough to stir us into obedience to His commandments.
39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
My heart is heavy reading Matthew this morning. Jesus knew His hour has come and prayed to have the cup taken away but asked for God’s will to be done. Thank you Jesus for being the ultimate sacrifice to reconcile us back with the Father.
In our own lives, do we ask for God’s will to be done when times are hard or do we try to get out of it in our own abilities? This truly convicts me.
I keep listening to the news speak about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the best site to get one.
