The Great Christmas Scandal – 6
9 “Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,then your light will rise in the darkness,and your night will become like the noonday.” – Isaiah 58:9-10
When Jesus said, “Go into all the world and share the gospel” He wasn’t talking about forcing people to convert, or loving them only if they sinned the same way we do! He was talking about taking away “the yoke of oppression” caused by the law. He was talking about taking away “the pointing finger and malicious talk” because under Grace we are all equally saved solely by His act on the cross! The law is no longer our guide, Jesus Christ Alone IS The Way, The Truth and The Life!
Tell me this, which yoke is easier:
1) The law with all its guilt, shame or condemnation that Never made Anyone holy?
2) Faith in Christ Alone and His Finished work on the cross?
Go therefore and Spread His yoke of Unconditional and Non-judging Love!
