Do you remember those old Spy vs Spy comics from Mad Magazine where one spy sets a trap for the other one, only to have the other guy outsmart him so that it backfires?
Jesus did exactly that kind of verbal jujitsu in today’s text. Most sermons you hear preached on this text will focus on how Jesus sidestepped the traps and left his critics scratching their heads.
But there’s more to the story than that. A lot more.
Like how you can have your spidey-senses honed to recognize red flags when someone starts setting a trap for you.
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
