far from common sense

Here's a glimpse from my devotional this morning:

"The danger with us is that we want to water down the things that Jesus says and make them mean something in accordance with common sense;  if it were only common sense, it was not worth while for Him to say it." ~ Oswald Chambers

YES! Ohhhh, this statement is so true and so contrary to what the culture around us is saying about God's Word and Jesus.  Always trying to change things around to make a kinder gentler God that will make life easier for us as we justify just about anything and everything.  We fit God into our common sense mold as we attempt to grasp who He is.

But this is the reality:  "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." ~ Isaiah 55:8-9

God is God and I am not and neither are you.  He IS the same yesterday, today, and forever.

God's Word is often going to be counter culture.  Jesus spoke TRUTH.  Take some time to read the red print of Jesus' words through the four Gospels...then live it out with His strength, help, and guidance.  Find out just how truly amazing our God is whose thoughts and ways are not ours!
