John 19: 19-22
When I read what Pilate said, I knew he knew. Pilate knew Jesus was the Messiah. Yet, he allowed him to be crucified anyway. That internal voice, the conscience, the huge impression, the tick, tick, tick in the mind---he KNEW. And he did it anyway.
James 4:17 "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin." (KJV)In this ladies summer Bible study Time of Your Life that I'm working on, one thing I need to remember is that each lady is going through her own message that she is receiving from God. If I am writing questions for the daily Bible study, I need to write generic reflection questions and actions. Whatever the Lord is leading each to do, as she sees it, the struggle to comply, obey, release, or whatever will be huge. It will be hard. It may be painful. It will involve sacrifice. Yet, to not do so, once God has revealed His path, would be considered sin.
Lord, help me to be sensitive to Your guidance in choosing scriptures and writing reflective questions. Help me to obey as You lead me in my life. Help me listen to You as You speak. Help me to be disciplined enough to act in obedience as You direct. Forgive me of my sin, as my flesh is mighty powerful. I've had a lot of years of practice in obeying it, instead of You. Help me in my weakness, Father. I want to please You.
