New Life

Jesus is clear that bad things happen to good people. That isn’t the issue.

Jesus is focused on letting me know that there is a life or death issue to be concerned about. I must turn to God. I must change my mind (repent). I must allow Jesus to be my Master.

If I turn to God I will have life. If I don’t turn to God, I will have death. It is my choice. God lets me decide.

The main issue and God’s goal for me is to focus on what Jesus wants me to do. It is not about what I want. It is all about what God wants.

About that time some people came up and told him about the Galileans Pilate had killed while they were at worship, mixing their blood with the blood of the sacrifices on the altar. Jesus responded, “Do you think those murdered Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans? Not at all. Unless you turn to God, you, too, will die. And those eighteen in Jerusalem the other day, the ones crushed and killed when the Tower of Siloam collapsed and fell on them, do you think they were worse citizens than all other Jerusalemites? Not at all. Unless you turn to God, you, too, will die.
