Do we want to hear God speak? Do we want to see Him send us into amazing Kingdom work? Do we want to walk with Him intimately, like friends? Then we need to be diligent to remove the things that dull our senses and make us lose our footing in the race.
Ultimately, the subjective ideal of fairness that we tend to value as humans is utterly shamed beside the objective perfection of God’s justice, which has the power to make the most horrific wrongs eternally right, and makes space for Him to put His grace on glorious display.
What I find awe-inspiring about Jesus is that His vision is so utterly clear. He discerns the intent behind every question perfectly, and keeps His eyes on the end goal rather than getting caught up in debate with those who have already made up their minds.
