Not what, but why

“Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand. And they watched Jesus, to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse him.” Mark 3:1,2

Sometimes when I’m reading the Bible, the Holy Spirit smacks me right between the eyes, my mouth drops open, and I marvel again at this remarkable Word and its power to pierce, expose, instruct, convict, and heal me.

“And they watched Jesus.”

They watched Jesus. They watched Jesus! Very God of very God, right there in their synagogue, and they, the Pharisees — the ones who knew scripture, who read it, studied it, memorized it — had this amazing opportunity to hear Him teach and watch Him in action.

What could possibly be bad about that?

Today I search my heart a bit over at All the Church Ladies. I hope you’ll stop by and share yours as well.
