And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” (Matthew 27:25)
We are not so different from these Jews. If “peace” means added tension, sleepless nights, and involvement in overwhelming problems of our times; if “joy” means pain and bereavement; if “abundant life” means years of loneliness with no companion, a crippling disease that steals our health, or months and months without a job, then we’re apt to look elsewhere too. Actually, we want God’s promises to look the way we want them to. But if that’s the way it is with us, then God’s promises will always turn into dust and ashes in our mouths.
