Luke 6:17 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Luke 6:17

He went down with them and stood on a level place. 

 

 

I was reading in Luke this morning, and right before Jesus starts teaching the Beatitudes, it says “He went down with them and stood on a level place....”. I was like, “Why is that important enough to mention?” Then the Holy Spirit laid it on me: Jesus wants us to know that He is approachable, that He will meet us right where we are, and even though He is our Savior, He doesn’t hold that over our heads or treat us less-than!! What other King do you know that would go to His subjects and do that?

 

When I think of a King, I think of someone who talks down to His people and treats them as lower than Himself!! But not Jesus. He is saying, “Let’s make this a level playing field and go to God together!!” That’s the heart of our King!!

 

If anyone in the history of the world had the right to consider Himself better than anyone else, it was Jesus. But He didn’t!! He wants us to know we can come to Him with anything at any time, and He will be right there to greet us with open arms!!

 

If Jesus didn’t consider Himself better than anyone, else then neither should I!! The last time I checked, the ground was even at the foot of the cross. We have all fallen short, and luckily for us, His blood is enough to cover us all!!! Thank You, Jesus!!!!

 

I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!!!!!!
