When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Matthew 7:28-29 NIV
They could tell you were different. I can too. When I read your words they are like nothing else I’ve ever read. They drip with love for God, people and the truth. They cut through the fog of pithy human wisdom and wishful thinking. They give real hope that transcends political platitudes. They help me see how I can please the Father by living out my faith. They soften my heart that’s so prone to ossify. They speak forgiveness and redemption that sweep away my despair. Thank you for coming to earth to teach us the way to live and the way to heaven. We would be totally lost without you. By your Holy Spirit keep me reminded of your words throughout the day today and the weekend.

Truth has a way of shoving its way to the front of our minds.
