Jesus is our perfect example in everything - in our passage, He shows us what to do when ministering the Gospel to those who have hard hearts.

Where can we find the grace to do all these things? In Jesus Christ alone. He went before you to give us an example, He sent His Spirit to give us His help. The Spirit is able to guide our minds in the truth, to give us love even for the hard hearted, and to give us the boldness to do what is right in the face of your enemies.
