First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Matthew 12.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — The tension between Jesus and the Pharisees comes to a head (over Jesus healing on the Sabbath and his popularity) so the Pharisees accuse the Holy Spirit’s miracles of being Satan’s power.
- Doctrinal — Would Jesus today have engaged at all on social media (“the streets” of our society) or would he have been shockingly quiet and mundane online, allowing his works to speak for themselves (read verses 15-21, thinking about Jesus and social media).
- Inspirational — I need to be aware of being Christ-like all the time, including online.
