Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 109

109. No one would say anything public about Him for fear of the Jews (John 7:13).

Little has changed. Even today, people are reluctant to say anything about Jesus for fear of something. There are as many threats to a voice for Christ today as there were in those days. They faced the rejection of the Sadducees, possibly being put out of the Temple, and perhaps accused of stirring rebellion. We face rejection of friends, ridicule, and the accusation of intolerance. That’s why we clearly need the empowering of the Holy Spirit if we are going to break through those reluctances and tell others that we are a part of Christ. Faith alone is insufficient for testimony in a contentious place. We also need supernatural power to overcome our weaknesses.
