What to do?

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 5:58 pm

Luke 3:10 And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?”

John didn’t hold back when addressing the crowds around him.  He told them of their sins in strong terms, calling them a ‘brood of vipers’.  If I was spoken to like that I’d probably be getting defensive, at least in my mind, or thinking that it really applied to someone else.  These people had the right response though.  They didn’t argue back.  They just asked, “what then shall we do?”.

This is the way to respond to a Godly challenge: without pride, without arrogance, without dismissal.  Lord help me to act like this even when every part of me want to do the opposite.
