Scripture Reading: Luke 4:28-30
And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. But he passing through the midst of them went his way.
Reflection: Through out his life time, Jesus publicly subscribed to a scripture based life. This often infuriated his critics. One day his critics decided to take him on when he quoted Isaiah 61:1-3 as prophetically referring to him. Their aim was to kill him. All was set for their death trap to work. They held and pushed him out of the city to the edge of the hill. Their next move was to push him off the hill to crush to death. Jesus looked helpless but in a moment, something incredible happened. Jesus slipped out of their hands and escaped to safety. Wow! The divine power of God prevented him from being killed. This same power is still available. Keep living the scripture based life. You will not die before your time! You will surely slip through the hands of your enemies. Glory to God forever!
Confession: I cannot be killed before my time!
