In Matthew 14:1-14, Herod had news of jesus and all the miracles. Herod thought that John the Baptist had risen from the dead. He had beheaded John for speaking against his wife. Jesus left Jerusalem when John was beheaded. Jesus and the disciples went into a desert place. Many people followed Jesus into the desert. Jesus healed everyone that came and asked. Even then people wanted to kill Him. But it wasn’t the time to reveal Himself. God arranges our life. Even Jesus’s life was directed by God. We have a choice to make. We have to choice what we are going to do, every minute of every day. Nothing makes us do anything. We have to choose it, either good or bad. Jesus didn’t have to die for us. God gave Him a free will just like us. Jesus chose to die on the the cross. And because He did, God raised Him from the dead and made Him King of kings and Lord of lords. God is still trying to make us kings and priests. But we have to choose this life. No one can make you. Choose life this day.
