Chapter-a-Day John 12

Blind Jesus said all this, and then went into hiding. All these God-signs he had given them and they still didn’t get it, still wouldn’t trust him. John 12:36 (TM)

Some people just refuse to believe. They ask for more and more proof. They want more and more assurances. And yet, the reality is there would never be enough proof. There are not enough assurances. Faith requires leaving the safety of what we know. Faith is risk.

Some will never take the step.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day John 12”

  1. 42-43On the other hand, a considerable number from the ranks of the leaders did believe. But because of the Pharisees, they didn’t come out in the open with it. They were afraid of getting kicked out of the meeting place. When push came to shove they cared more for human approval than for God’s glory.
    Nothing has changed in all of these years. We still care more about human approval many times than what Jesus desires. I’m trying to change that.
