Almost every biblical quote from Jesus is easy to swallow. No other god makes the kind of promises He makes. “I will never leave you or forsake you,” “Blessed are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the merciful,” “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Who wouldn’t want a Savior who keeps those promises? But He also made some statements that are harder to swallow. If we’re really honest, there are promises and instructions that we wish He didn’t give. In this series, we’ll go one-by-one through some of the statements that don’t make great memes or wall hangings. But they are no less important than the others. And if we understand them correctly, they really are wonderful statements that give further proof of His faithfulness.
