Serving the Word: John 7, 40-53

John 7, 40-53:
“There has never been anybody who has spoken like him”.

Before Jesus nobody can remain indifferent.
In this gospel people argue about Him.
While the simple people approve of him, the Pharisees and religious leaders reject him.
While some say that “nobody has ever talked like this man”, others claim that “prophets don’t come from Galilee”.
The religious leaders try to eliminate him because they find Jesus uncomfortable.
With Jesus many of their securities are taken away. For them he cannot be a prophet.
For the people of the town he is truly “the prophet.”
Put yourself in front of Jesus today. He offers himself to you, he will never confront you.
Let yourself be seduced by him, by his person, by his deeds, by his words…
That for you, “nobody ever talked like that man”. Open yourself up to his person and his message of salvation.
And truly think: What is stronger for you, the message of Jesus or the message to the world?
Good day.
