They give me hope.
Some of the things they said in the scriptures are so human.
Luke 9:54When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” 55But Jesus turned and rebuked them, 56and they went to another village.
I don’t honestly think this verse has ever stood out to me before, and I don’t know why. Jesus had been trying to teach the disciples who he was and what he was doing, and they thought this was the best idea? They were just like me. Grasping, trying to understand, wrap their minds around, what in the WORLD was going on. He had to turn and rebuke them, then they went on. They were learning with every step as they walked with Him.
And these were the ones He called Salt of the Earth.
Amazing love, how can it be?
