“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’" Luke 18:10–13

Notice how the Pharisee gave glory to God: "God I thank 'you', that I am not like other men." In this story the tax collector goes away justified in pleading with God to be merciful. Yet, let us not be found saying, "I thank you God, that I am not like this Pharisee."

What did Jesus teach us about the prodigal son, the woman caught in adultery, the homeless man named Lazarus, the outcast leper, blind Bartimaeus who begged for mercy, the lamenting tax collector, and the woman of the city who wept at Jesus' feet?

They were all recipients of His love while those who exalted themselves were cast out.

You know, with even those who speak so much of 'law for believers', I doubt very much if they truly use all the New Testament 'imperatives' as law. Do they make a list of them all and seek to memorise them, so that they are on their hearts and in their minds day and night? Bind them on their foreheads and on their door posts? Reference the catalogue of commandments constantly in day to day living in order to abide by them? If not, are they really treating God's word 'as law' at all?

Or do they, like every believer, read and meditate on portions so as to feed on Christ? To learn at His feet. To train and school minds and hearts to think in line with His mind? To set thoughts on the heavenly things His Spirit, through His word, sets before? To access His breathed life-power each day? To grow, thereby, in love for Him and love for His people?

Are we really so different?
