One comment on “In His Presence – January 18

  1. Jesus continues teaching the disciples on the mount in today’s verses. He covers judging, asking, and the treatment of others.

    Jesus continues to use visual techniques in His teaching. He uses the speck/plank in the eye analogy in verses 3-4, and the bread/stone and fish/snake analogies in verses 9-10. What a great teacher!

    He concludes today’s Scriptures by letting them know up front that living the way He instructs is going to be difficult. In fact, when you look around, not many are living this way. (It’s the narrow gate, verse 13-14). But, it’s this way that leads to life.
