Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

“Preconceptions exist in our own head; if we start out with the preconception that God will never allow the innocent to perish and then we see a righteous man perishing, we will have to say, “You cannot be a righteous man, because my preconception tells me that if you were, God would never allow you to suffer; therefore you are proved to be a bad man.”

When Jesus came on the scene the preconception of the historic people of God was this - “We are the constitution of God, Judaism is God’s ordination, therefore You cannot be Messiah,” and they crucified Him.

Our Lord said that His Church would be so completely taken up with its precedents and preconceptions that when He came they would not see Him because they were taken up with another point of view.

The question for each of us to ask ourselves is this: Would I recognise God if He came in a way I was not prepare for?”
