DAY 48 - Am I So Blind As Those Chief Priests

Today’s Reading: Matthew 27

(Please read Matthew 27: 1 – 66 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

All the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death.
Matthew 27:1

This morning Jesus drew my attention to the word “chief priests”. I counted and find out “chief priest” appears seven time in Matthew 27. In Jesus time there was one high priest, around 200 chief priests and around 7,000 priests. My question is how come all 200 chief priest were so blind to put Jesus to death.

As in comparison to the church nowadays, “high priest” is equal to “primate or archbishop” in Anglican term and “chief priests” equal to “bishops”. All 200 bishops were blind! How could that be? How easy it can be that we are not able to see the things God wants us to see. By that blindness we can kill many servants of God and even Jesus. How sad!

Are you helping God’s servants or killing God’s servant recently?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Open my eyes to see you, to love you and to worship you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
