Healing, Not Misleading

Narrated by Tami Boesiger

They began to accuse him, saying, “We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding us to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ, a king.” Luke 23:2

Jesus, of course, was not misleading anyone. He was all about healing people and leading them in the right direction. His intent is still the same for us, seeking to redirect our lives in God’s intended direction.

Satan’s aim is to mislead us away from God’s loving will. When we expose our attitudes and actions to the healing wounds of Jesus, he can redirect us to the path of healthy godliness. Turn to the Savior, whose healing wounds reconcile you with the Father, and submit to his will for your life.

REFLECT: Who or what may be trying to lead you away from Christ?

PRAY: I repent, Lord Jesus, of my misdirected life; heal my deadly sinfulness and lead me to new life. Amen.
