You are not far from the Kingdom of God

July 26, 2014

Maybe he was like a sheep among goats. And needed to separate himself from them. They had all read the Scriptures but there was a difference. He had the spirit, they didn’t. Maybe they were managing their customary titles: son of a Levite, son of a Pharisee, a Teacher of the law; but his heart went deeper.

For he asked an unusual question. A question on content, on comprehension. Not in ignorance, but in prudence. To see if Jesus measured up to his claim as the Son of God. Jesus sure delivered. His summary of the law was just what this man expected, for he said, ‘Well said, teacher!’

Jesus concluded: “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” Sometimes our greys need that extra dose of white to bleach us.
