What if you are wrong? Holding on to logic.

There cannot be many more examples of clear blasphemy than these verses we have been reading. 

The only way this man has been healed and set free is the source of Jesus’ power which is God. Secondly, the only way this man was set free was because Jesus came and restricted Satan’s powers over the individual.

The offended religious leaders attributed the healing to the work of Satan. Jesus then says, “….And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.  But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. (Matthew 12 v 27-28)

Jesus was not the only one conducting exorcisms at the time. Within the Pharisees sect they had their own exorcists. Jesus turns his attention to them, “What you say of me can be said of your own exorcists.” He is exposing their lack of logic and he goes further, “What if you are wrong?” That is the big question. “If you’re wrong and this is God then the kingdom is actually here and you are so blinded you have missed Him and what He is doing.”

It is the biggest most challenging question that we all need to use more often: What if I am wrong? What if you are wrong?

The people who will not bear the question are those who are so deeply offended and have proud hearts so fixed on dislike and discord that all possible logic is thrown out of the window.

The next time someone doubts your motive or attacks your efforts ask the question, “What if you are wrong?” Don’t automatically doubt yourself. God is using you and speaking through you more than is comfortable to those around you.
