Am I the only one who scrolls through the comments before watching the videos and then sits there waiting until 3.10 to see the funny facial expression that someone pulls or 6.43 to hear the joke that has User533 ‘literally dying‘ in the comments section? There’s something addictive about the comments section. Sometimes what you read there is funnier than the videos themselves. There are some reallll funny people on the world wide web! Recently I’ve started to notice that between all the comedians and super observant people, there are also some really deep people in the comments section.
Mad. It’s so true. I’m guilty of sometimes focusing on how I can use the Bible to become a ‘better person.’ Often forgetting that that is not the point of the Gospel. It is a result of the Gospel but not the point. Christ died to give us life. He didn’t die to make us happy or content. The wages of sin is death but through Christ’s death and resurrection, He redeemed us.
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” – Galatians 3:13
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death was passed on to all men, because all sinned. – Romans 5:12
His whole mission was to restore us back to Him so that we could enjoy in eternal life. This fact can be a tricky thing. Knowledge of this and knowing that the curse of the law is broken, it is easy to sit here and think “bye Moses, bye commandments.” Forgetting that Jesus himself told us that if we love Him, we should keep His commands (John 14:15). You see, acceptance of God gives us live but it is our love for Him that makes us good. But it’s a process. One of the longest processes. When Jesus said “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak,” I’m pretty sure Peter was thinking that Jesus was reading his mind. I’m the first to say that I have good intentions but little follow through. I have the intentions to do many things but do I ever…? That’s why it is important for us to view the Bible as more than just a legal document or a covenant. It breathes life.
Many people have morals but few people live. Our righteousness are not what makes us right with God, it is our acceptance. If it were up to us, we would all fail.
Anyone would think that these comments were from the same video but they’re not. When I read this I honestly felt like she was talking to me. It’s so easy to get caught up talking to people about God and forget to actually talk to Him. So although the point of the Gospel isn’t about our morals, it makes it a lot easier to do the right thing when you are in constant communication with God.
So yeah, you gotta love the comment sections!
