My pondering last night was on why so many would follow after Jesus.
What were they seeing?
What were they seeking?
Some thought He was the Messiah and wanted to be near the King.
Others saw His miracles of healing and wanted that for their lives.
Most, even His disciples, did not understand His stories so you wouldn’t say speaking was His claim to fame at that time. There was no TV, NPR or social media to tell everyone, yet thousands would show up.
What drew them in?
How did they hear?
Where did they come from?
To some He was danger. A disruption to their orderly rules. They wanted to silence Him, to kill Him, to stop what they didn’t understand.
Are you chasing Him?
What are you seeing?
What are you seeking?
