Notes from the Journey with David – 113

113. But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from (John 7:27).

The mystery of the Christian faith is it’s amazing impact on the people we know. It’s interesting that these words (spoken in every generation) imply that we’re more comfortable following those we don’t know–whose origins are the mystery. To put faith in those whose steps we know seems less spiritual somehow. Such an idea undermines the whole idea of a moral fabric guiding our choices. We want the style rather than an awareness of the substance. Rather than looking at what Jesus has done in making a judgment, these preferred to look at the commonness of His neighborhood. Funny that they didn’t know just how extraordinary His real background was. Just like the transformation of those we know today–there’s Someone amazing at work! Sad that we’d rather follow what we don’t know.
