What I read today;

2 Corinthians 13; Luke 3; Isaiah 45; Psalm 5; Judges 21; Genesis 45

Look at what John did in Luke 3.  He condemned the religious show-offs and told them to practice what they preached.  He told the tax collectors not to extort others. John told the soldiers to treat people fairly, not to blackmail them or make false accusations. He wasn’t afraid to take on a king, even if that meant going to jail.  Most importantly, he pointed them to Jesus.

So let me get this straight, John’s message was that we should be the best human beings that we can, avoid legalistic judgmentalism, treat your neighbors with respect and kindness, and put your faith and trust in Jesus?

No wonder John drew crowds.
