Galatians 3:1-3 (TPT)
3 "What has happened to you Galatians to be acting so foolishly? You must have been under some evil spell! Didn’t God open your eyes to see the meaning of Jesus’ crucifixion? Wasn’t he revealed to you as the crucified one?"
I found this cool story on the web by Dash House:
“In 1859, the famous tight-rope walker Charles Blondin traveled to Niagara Falls. He stretched a three-inch wire over the gorge. There, suspended on this wire, he walked 1,100 feet from one side to the other. He did this a number of times: blindfolded, in a sack, pushing a wheelbarrow, on stilts, sitting down midway while he cooked and ate an omelet, and standing on a chair with only one chair leg on the rope.
But that’s not all. He also carried a man on his back over that tightrope. This must be one of the best examples of trust ever placed by one human in another. It’s either brave or stupid. Blondin carried his manager on his back from one side of the Falls to the other. I don’t care if it was his manager; that goes beyond an honest day’s work.
Imagine if halfway across the manager had said to Blondin, 'Look, I appreciate that you’ve taken me this far, but I really don’t trust you anymore. I think I’ll do the rest myself. Let me down, and I’ll take it from here.' Can you imagine? He’d be a dead manager from that point on. Having been carried that far, why in the world would he think that he could get the rest of the way across by himself?”
Thank You, Father, for giving us the wisdom and the good common sense to know that we can not make it to our destination with out Your grace. We started with grace and we will finish with grace. Praise God. Thank You for revealing to us the false doctrines that try to take away from us our freedom that comes. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
