“Caught in the very act!” These were the words of the Jewish leaders when they interrupted Jesus’ teaching with an adulterous woman. Ultimately, Jesus told the woman that He didn’t condemn her, to go her way & sin no more.
“We don’t have enough bread to feed this mass of people.” These were the words of Jesus’ disciples when He told them to feed the crowd. Ultimately, Jesus asked what they had, started with that & multiplied from there.
“Jesus wept.” This was Jesus’ response to seeing the intense grief and mourning from Lazarus’ death. Ultimately, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, after conversing with his sisters who were deep in the throes of loss.
The Jesus Way, which we would do well to follow, includes these things:
- the absence of judgment and the abundance of forgiveness
- bless the provision instead of cursing the lack
- being present in grief and pain rather distracted or numb
Let’s do the Jesus Way in our daily living, which is ultimately the Way of Genuine Love!
