“If you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark,an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth.”
The Jews had a confidence about life and their privileged role that made them morally superior to others. The feeling was based on the ability to help others through the sharing of the truth that was embodied in the law. One problem- We will say they didn’t live by it.
Okay, I know I have the ability afforded by the gospel to help people. Am I sincere? Do I have integrity? Whats different? The abiding Holy spirit who work in me!
O Lord, I praise you for your call to share the Gospel. May I never abandon you, but rather have a walk worthy.
