A Thought for Today: “Manipulating the System”
 
This thought is a fancy way of saying; I will do whatever is needed to get what I want.
 
The trial of Jesus is a sick and cruel joke.
It is anything but fair.
The desired outcome is the death of Jesus.
 
In addition, the religious leaders who are supposed to love the law of the Lord God so much, will break any law they must to get their desired outcome.
 
Please read the following verses
Mark 14:55-65
55 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death, but they did not find any.
56 Many testified falsely against him, but their statements did not agree.
 
57 Then some stood up and gave this false testimony against him:
58 “We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this temple made with human hands and in three days will build another, not made with hands.’”
59 Yet even then their testimony did not agree.
 
60 Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, “Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?”
61 But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer.
 
Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?”
 
62 “I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
63 The high priest tore his clothes. “Why do we need any more witnesses?” he asked. 64 “
You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?”
They all condemned him as worthy of death.
 
65 Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, “Prophesy!” And the guards took him and beat him.
 
This account makes me angry, to see how the perfect, sinless Lamb of God is beaten and abused.
 
However, I do not have to examine my life very closely to see many times when I abused the Lord God by living how I lived.
 
I am so glad that Godless living is in the past and the Lord God is not remembering it anymore; because Jesus Christ paid the price for my sins.
 
“I am so glad that Jesus loves me.”
 
I am so glad that our Father in Heav’n
Tells of His love in the Book He has giv’n;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see,
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.
 
Refrain:
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.
