It’s like focusing on the coffee cup. If you’re walking and you focus on the coffee cup, you’ll spill. You’re so focused on not spilling you put your eyes on the cup… and you end up spilling. But if you have your eyes on where you’re going, the coffee doesn’t spill! It’s awesome! When we look at our failures and we dwell on our failures, we fail. But when we look at Jesus…
This is life in Jesus! He has done all the work! He has forgiven us!
Don’t focus on your failures. God doesn’t! Why should you?

Rahab was always known as “Rahab the Prostitute.” Yet I want to tell you it doesn’t matter. It has no consequence for your future. God wants to give you a future. And your future is being a child of God and not your past. Not that label that we give ourselves. God wants to give you hope and He wants to bring you a new life. You are NOT your past!

For the next 20 years Samson is with God’s people. The Philistines are still in control, but they don’t want to mess with Samson. But they do what to find something out. What makes him strong.
Then the text says there’s this women of ill-repute and Samson decides he wants to go down and be her “friend.” The Philistines see this and they say, “Hmmmmmmm Samson’s in town and now we know how to get to him. Hey Delilah come over here! Delilah! You need to get close to Samson and find out what makes him so strong!”

Have you ever done that? Have you set out trusting God, having faith in God, only to have a plan B in your hip pocket? If God promises it He will fulfill it!

It’s hard to share Jesus with other people when we’re caught up in our failures. I mean, you go to work and you’re like, “Hey, why don’t you come to Bible Study with me? Why don’t you come to church?” Then you’re like, “But they know me! They know what words came out of my mouth! They know the attitude I had last week! They know!” Yeah… THEY do. But are you sharing Jesus with them? Or are you sharing your perfectionism with them? Listen, we all fall short of the glory of God. We’re sharing Jesus with them. Jesus is the ONLY answer!

Hey Pilate. We noticed you wrote, “King of the Jews.” Could you rewrite that please? Could you please write, ‘He says he’s the King of the Jews?” Pilate looks at them and says, ‘I wrote what I wrote!” I’m not going to change what I wrote because it’s going to tickle your little ears!
People are going to try to get us to rewrite the story of Jesus. We need to look at them with confidence and say, “I said what I said!”

And as Barabbas walks away a free man I picture Jesus standing there, looking at Barabbas. He doesn’t say anything. He doesn’t proclaim his innocence. He just looks at Barabbas… He stands there guilty of something he did not do. He just locks eyes with Barabbas. Who’s Barabbas?… Barabbas is you and Barabbas is me. We are guilty. Yet He pays our punishment. Because love says, “I’ll take that!”

Listen, we can walk with God for years and years and years, and then all the sudden wonder if God is really even there.
