Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was? John 7:41-42
Those that wanted to deny Jesus as Messiah did it based on the scripture – the lineage and birthplace.
What they failed to do was to get all the facts about Jesus Himself. They supposed He was born and raised in Galilee, not knowing of His birth in Bethlehem so many years ago.
They judged Him by what they knew, not by the facts!
Jumping to conclusions seldom leads to happy landings.
Throughout the day I can hear a bit of conversation here and another bit there. I will always come to some conclusion based on what I hear.
Or I see someone act a certain way. Perhaps they are stumbling around while walking. I may think they are inebriated when they may actually be having a reaction to cold medicine.
Often my conclusions are wrong.
There are a lot of people today that have come to a conclusion about Jesus based on partial information – a little bit of a sermon here or a part of a Bible verse there.
But when you read the entire Bible you will get the entire picture.
It will change your life. The more you read – the more you will change.
Abba, I want to know more about You. I want to know all about You. I want Your word to continue to change me and those around me. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
