Jesus Brings Peace - and Division? (Luke 12:49-53)
Jesus came to save - yes. But part of the work of His dying on the cross was not only to secure salvation for those who believe in God's provision but also to judge those who would not believe. What we see in this passage is the eagerness to judge sin and sinners. God's holiness is seen in Jesus in His revealed desire to take care of sin both through salvation and judgment.
