Throughout our lives, God brings different ‘pearls’ of revelation to us. Some of these pearls are small; they help us to work out temporary situations. Other times, they are a lot bigger, brighter and longer lasting; they change the way we think about ourselves and those around us. Not long ago God dropped one of these very precious pearls into my hands.
We watched a typical gospel video on Sunday. It was about this criminal, Barabbas, whom the crowds opted to be set free so that Jesus might be crucified. The video explained how we are all like this criminal, Barabbas, deserving of death but set free so that Jesus might take our place.
