‘Adaptable Indifference’ (Jesus)

‘Adaptable Indifference’ (Jesus)…Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’

Adaptable Indifference (Jesus)

why do you not touch My† words
do you not know
they are true and just

what is in this unbelief
that just because I've† chosen a woman
you prowl yourself away
ignoring because of her

don't you see
this is the very reason I† chose her
she wrote about abuse
no one was listening
how far is it to write for Me†

you don't stand up for those abused
no one stood up for her
no one stood up for Me† either
it's God's† will
testing a person's heart
will you give to that person
will you stand up for this person
will you help mend that person
will you endure and save this person

as I† demonstrate through My† prophet's life
people run at the first sight of strife
this isn't what the Father† calls for
He† has shown through the prophet
now I† tell you as well

strife test the most
it's fire
and many can't take the heat
it is that heat which pushes the hardest
gets under your skin
digs in deep
it wants you to give up
it wants you to walk away
it pushes and pulls
tearing at your very heart
making you the fool
to the outside...the collection

but it is the inside that matters
that push and pull
strife or the collection

'what will you do'

the easy answer comes easy
the hard answer comes hard
the harder the answer
the more confusion comes in
mixing the boiling pot
the heart carries the truth
listen
it is not always what you want
to hear
but it is the truth

the road to the kingdom
will not be the easy road
trust inside instead of out

—says the Lord Jesus† the Christ†
the first Son†
of the one, true living God†

Matthew (Levi) Is CalledOnce again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to Him, and He began to teach them. As He walked along, He saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. ‘Follow Me,’ Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed Him.—Matthew 9:9; Mark 2:13-14; Luke 5:27,28 (Galilee)

Eating with Sinners—[Luke] Then Levi held a great banquet for Jesus at his house, and a large crowd of tax collectors and others were eating with them. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law who belonged to their sect complained to His disciples, ‘Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and ‘sinners’?’ On hearing this, Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’—Matthew 9:10-13; Mark 2:15-17; Luke 5:29-32

Disciples Not FastingThey said to Him, ‘John’s disciples often fast and pray, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but Yours go on eating and drinking.’ Jesus answered, ‘Can you make the guests of the bridegroom fast while He is with them? But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; in those days they will fast.’ He told them this parable: ‘No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is better.”—Matthew 9:14-14; Mark 2:18-22; Luke 5:33-39
