On hearing His words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.” Others said, “He is the Messiah.” Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?” Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. Some wanted to seize Him, but no one laid a hand on Him. John 7:40-44
Today you are invited to consider what divides people regarding who Jesus is now? What objections do people offer when you speak to them about Jesus? Do their comments make you hesitate to talk about Him? How can you be a peace-maker between different objectors today? Ask God to show you how and to give you the words to say so that, when the situation arises, you are ready to stand for Him.
May God bless you with wisdom and courage as you stand for your Lord today and whenever it becomes necessary to speak out for Him.
