Its Not Logic

by | Jul 6, 2018

Your logical answers could be wrong 

“And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” John 9:2

When the disciples saw the man that was born blind, their facts and logic led them to conclude and asked Jesus a question limiting HIM to choose one of their two options.

Most of the time when we see facts and follow our natural senses to judge we may not be right as the disciples were wrong in their analysis above.

“Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” John 9:3

Jesus answered them above letting them know that it’s not logic all the time but knowing the mind of God on issues is foremost.

“But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.” Acts 28:3-4

The villagers who first had an encounter with Paul on firsthand after his shipwreck logically concluded wrongly that nemesis was catching up with him however they were wrong.

 It was another opportunity for God to showcase Himself “They kept expecting him to drop dead, but when it was obvious he wasn’t going to, they jumped to the conclusion that he was a god!” 

Their logical deductions were not right.

Don’t hastily conclude on matters. 

Always find the mind of God on issues especially when you are pronouncing judgment.

“The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?” John 4:11

The Samaritan woman too logically concluded that since she could not see a bucket in the hands of Jesus how would HE draw the water to give?

Step up to know the mind of God on facts and situation reports before you conclude.

God is always at work in such situations.
