Whispering

Read John 7.1-13

“.. among the crowds there was widespread whispering about Him ..” (Jn.7.12)

So far as Jesus is concerned, there was no need to market your product, to tout your wares or to grasp every photo op there might be. His very presence makes waves, if not actual earthquakes: the crowds haven’t seen anything like Him in their lives!

To what extent (if any) should Jesus’ church be ‘showing Him to the world’?

‘No one would say anything publicly about him ..’: have you been afraid to speak publicly about Jesus?

Prayer: Give me the wisdom to know when to speak of You, Lord Jesus, the boldness to say what needs to be said, and the grace to do so in love.
