Scripture of the Day - September 17, 2012

Mark 11:18  And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

Instead of being convicted of their great sin they sought to destroy Jesus. They were more interested in their traditions and  the power they had over the people. The fact that they were hypocrites didn't bother them. The fact that they were doing wrong didn't bother them. They were so filled with their own doctrines and had strayed so far from God's word that they didn't even know it any more.  So when Jesus came on the scene teaching His doctrine they sought to destroy Him. 
It's not much different today. People would rather hang onto their man-made doctrines and their traditions and brush aside the truth of God's word. Declarations of 'that's not for today' ring loudly when the truth is pointed out. They will scorn, they will mock and they will turn their backs. Let me tell you, one day Jesus will turn His back and say I never knew you. Oh I pray that peoples eyes would be open to the truth before it's too late for them.
