Get Real

Get Real

This week’s passage from Matthew 23 reveals what is at the heart of Jesus – what aches His heart and why it does. It is through Jesus’ interaction with the scribes and Pharisees that we see how their character and their motivation would shut off the kingdom of heaven from people. They are supposed to be pointing others to Jesus but they are not. We can use their example to examine ourselves – “Is there a lack of real faith or real love in me that would prevent others to come to Jesus?…Forgive me, God, for any time that I have not displayed the real You.” May that be our prayer.
