In Matthew 26:55, Jesus says to the crowd that came to seize Him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me as you would against a robber? Every day I used to sit in the temple teaching and you did not seize Me.”

Jesus is now addressing non-believers. While in some countries, those who put their faith in Jesus Christ are still being violently and brutally murdered with swords and clubs and other weapons, more sophisticated nations are now finding new ways to attack believers in Jesus Christ. They are no longer attacking the teachings of Jesus but they are using other means to try to discredit that He ever even existed. They try to attack our faith in Jesus in attempt to make it seem worthless. They fail to realize that life without Jesus is a completely worthless life. Nobody can disprove the fact of the miracles that Jesus works in the lives of people each and every day. What is their next option? Instead, they try to attack the history of the writers of the gospels, the creation of the world, the radical change in Paul’s life, the transformation from death to life in the lives of people that were believed to be helpless and hopeless. People try to say there is no evidence to prove God exists. It seems they are looking in the wrong place. There is so much evidence but the primary proof of God is found in our hearts each and everyday only through the loving grace of Jesus Christ.
