Jesus told the religious leaders and the listening crowds what the leaders were really like. They sat in the seat of Moses, enjoying prestige and privilege, while condemning people to hell through their hypocrisy and arrogance. He blamed them for the lost and misguided people of Israel, and laid the blood of the prophets squarely at their feet. Jesus wants us to bless others through demonstrating His love, grace, forgiveness and freedom. We need to live through God's Holy Spirit, carry the gospel, build His church and be a living sacrifice pleasing to our victorious Lord.

He is always there and His arms are always open and outstretched.

Don’t count how many times to forgive - how can we not forgive? Forgiveness disrupts our spiritual death, and disrupts the death of earthly relationships. Sometimes the person we need to forgive is ourself.

To know God and be obedient to Him in every way is show reverence for Him, for which He deserves. Jesus is in tune with God's will and the first place God's kingdom is to come is in our hearts. If we want God's will on earth, then we must do God's will - as it is in heaven is our goal. When we pray sincerely, and with heartfelt intention, we are then conduits for God's will that others will come to know Him. Pray that we will be worthy servants of God.
