This morning's entire reading can be found here.
But I will not accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.
John 5:45Two things to say here:
- They will (and we will) have to give an account to God of our lives. He is the highest authority and the one to whom we'll answer.
- We are to set our hopes on him. I will hope in him. Jesus says to the Pharisees 'you've set your hopes (for rescue and national revival) on Moses' The reason that's a problem is becaise the Father is the only one we should hope in for those things. He is our deliverer and the one who will rescue us.
