Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 124

124. “You will find that a prophet does not come from Galilee (John 7:52).

We think we have all the answers. We take our interpretations–our understanding of the way things work–and we build fences against evidence to the contrary. These religious leaders couldn’t see Jesus apart from their religious constructs. They couldn’t evaluate Him on the evidence of His life because they blinded themselves with “the way things work.” How often do we close our eyes to truth because it doesn’t come in the wrapping we’re used to? When we decide the way things are supposed to be, we close ourselves from good things that might come from another direction. And when that good thing is eternal life, we have made a tragic choice.
