From Pastor Perry

Matthew 22:41–46 (ESV)

Whose Son Is the Christ?

41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, 42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” 43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

44    “ ‘The Lord said to my Lord,

       “Sit at my right hand,

until I put your enemies under your feet” ’?

45 If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?” 46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

 

I have often heard that the best offense is a good defense.  I always disagreed with this view.  In football, if you can score every time you have possession, then you only have to stop them one time and you win.  Well, in today’s reading, Jesus switches from defense to offense and he questions them.  He asks them “What do you think about the Christ?   Whose son is he?  It is interesting that they stop asking Jesus questions after that.  Almost like a bully that picks on someone until they hit back.  Jesus’s authority is Godly, because he is God.

 

I pray: O Lord, I know that you are the Son of God.  You are the Christ.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
