What if the Good Samaritan hadn’t been able to help?
Like most people, I want to identify with the Good Samaritan and help those in difficult circumstances. However, I fear I am more like the religious elites and often ignore the desperate.
Even when I do try to help, it’s not always easy.

I write these posts because I love God and want my readers to see Him in fresh ways. I’m constantly surprised by how God continues to defy my expectations and breaks out of any box I might put Him in.

If it were up to me, I would give myself a discount on concert tickets. I am so short and always find myself standing behind someone tall. I don’t get the same experience at concerts that others do. I wouldn’t say that I feel scared in a crowd, but there’s definitely a feeling of claustrophobia, and I know of other people my height who avoid crowds altogether.
What is it like to be a sheep?
You don’t have to go far on the internet, to find plentiful examples of posts in which Christians are accused of being idiots. Sometimes these attacks come in the form of lengthy arguments; in others, the accusations are short attacks full of swear words and vitriol. Why is it that so many Christians cherish the wisdom they find in the Bible, but that same knowledge seems like complete nonsense to those outside the faith? Why the mismatch?
Imagine you’re an artist, and you’ve spent the last few years completing your masterpiece. You’re delighted with it, it is your best work, and as you gaze at it, you know the countless hours you spent on it were worth it.
God in human form is not unique to Christianity. Other religions celebrate gods who take on mortality. Yet, in these stories, the gods become human to maximise their physicality.
God’s always doing something new; it’s his habit. He made seven hundred and six thousand eyeballs today, each of them unique, and those are just the human ones.
This attribute of God floors me.

The importance of remembering what God has done
The pain and suffering we see in the world around us, particularly during this Covid crisis, cause us to forget. Sometimes we just get distracted by the busyness of life. Remembering what God has done for us helps us in the present and future.

‘The living sacrifice’, that’s Christ. Why is it necessary that Christ is both living and a sacrifice?
‘A living sacrifice’, that’s us. Why do we need to become living sacrifices?
There is heaps of theology out there, in books, courses, articles and videos about Christ as the Servant King. Most of the material focuses on chapters 40 to 55 in the book of Isaiah in the Bible. Consequently, when I came to write this post, I wondered what contribution I could make to a topic that has been written about so much already.
