"Where Is He?"

“Where Is He?”

Blessings Folk!

Today’s reading:

John 7:10-13


Yesterday we saw that Jesus’ brothers went to the Feast, but Jesus stayed back because it was not time for Him to go...in the manner that His brothers wanted.

Jesus now goes to the feast.
Not publicly.

The Jews were Feasting and wondering where Jesus was.
Some were grumbling concerning Him…
“He is a good man.”
“No, he leads the people astray.”

Yet, no one was speaking openly of Him for fear of the Jews.

They feared the Jewish religious leadership.

Such is today.

So few speak openly of the Lord.

They fear ridicule.
They fear belittlement.

The time is upon us when speaking of Jesus will cost.

Are you empowered to pay the cost?
