At the end of the study one of the men said, “I have to think this through.” The implication was that he had not before engaged with this passage at the level we did this morning. He sat there deep in thought and repeated himself, then said, “I really need some time to process this.”
His response was dead on. When we encounter something in Scripture that challenges the way we currently view our life or our world, his response should be ours. We have to take our confusion or reaction to the Lord and ask Him how to respond. That is one of the essences of following Christ, submitting our will, our world view, to His Lordship.
It is wise.
