Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 17

17. Nazareth! Can anything good come from there! (John 1:46).
Nathanael’s doubt underscores a common reality of Christ’s kingdom–His ways often destroy our preconceived notions. We have our ideas of the way that things should be and Jesus reveals many things that don’t fit our self-designed puzzles. His ways are higher and often directly opposed to the way that we think and believe. That’s a part of following–not always getting to choose the direction you will go. As followers of Christ, we must lay aside large pieces of our own wisdom and our previous ideas and listen to His voice. For He will often lead us where we were not prepared to go. He will show us the value of places we have never been.
