Agreement in Word Only

Jesus refuted the false belief of the Sadducees that there is no resurrection of the dead, and the scribes, who did believe in the resurrection, told Jesus, “Teacher, You have spoken well” (Luke 20:39).
They liked it that He agreed with them (Truly, He agreed with the Scriptures), for this made them look good in front of the opposition, but the scribes themselves had other disagreements with Jesus.
On this issue they had agreement with Him, but their hearts were not with Him, so that their agreement was merely in word.
Do you agree with Jesus? Is your heart fully with Him?
