In the post The Gospel Message Has a Beautiful and Refreshing Simplicity About it that Sets Us Free, I wrote that Jesus knew there would be resistance but He was always prepared to answer questions and teach the new way. There’s a lot of good common sense in the new way Jesus taught and to get done what God wants done, there’s a lot of prayer, listening, and decision making.
Jesus demonstrates an understanding of God’s priorities and He doesn’t care how things are supposed to be done; only that the top priority is to meet the needs of people and doing what the Father wants.
If situations come up and choices have to be made, Jesus is telling us that the choice is made based on if the activity blesses people. It is best to do God’s work rather than live according to a set of burdensome rules that do not bless others.
The Word is living and active like this video points out: Word of God Speak – MercyMe.
For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. – Proverbs 2:6
