Scripture Union SU Daily Guide 2nd August 2021 Outline:
When the chief priests and the elders questioned the authority of Jesus (vs.23-27), He compared their attitude to that of the second son in the parable of the two sons (vs.28-32). They projected themselves as the righteous ones, outwardly pretending to be obedient. Notice the reason the chief priests and elders refused to answer Jesus’ counter question about John’s authority (v.27). They were clearly going to expose themselves to public ridicule by their double standards.
Do we find similar situations in our modern society where people like to twist facts to suit their own purpose? True repentance is the key to overcoming such conduct. We see this clearly demonstrated by the first son. Even though he lived a rebellious and riotous life, when he realized his error, he made a complete turnaround. God is calling on people everywhere to repent of their sins and accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
Many religious people are rejecting the way of salvation while evil and wicked men are repenting and accepting salvation.
