Posted by HelloI was asked at the weekend to preach on Sunday. The passage I have is from John, chapter 7. The immediate ‘theme’ to look at is ‘Living Water’, but I don’t want to go that route and it seems quite ‘samey’.
It strikes me that the chapter has a lot about people discussing, arguing and fighting over who they thought Jesus was. This does not sound very different to today.
A question for you, though, that has come to me – if you had lived with Jesus would you have believed that he was the Messiah , the Son of God?
You see, I would immediatly say ‘yes, of course, bound to have!’ The first few verses of chapter 7, however, show us that Jesus’ own brothers were taking the mickey out of him something rotten. All because they did not believe that he was the Son of God.
How can it be that you live with Jesus for years and yet not believe him to be who he says he is?
Is that complete blindness or stubborn arrogance of not wanting to believe?
I am attemtpting to start this blog again and using the relaunch of blogger as a good excuse to relaunch the shiny headed prophet.
I don’t know what I am going to blog about … so we will have to wait and see what comes out of my shiny head.
