Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 6

6. The world did not recognize Him (John 1:10).
This is the expectation of the man who would follow God–the world doesn’t recognize. What is unrecognized? There is no understanding of the direction he chooses for his life. There is no comprehension of the “why” of his self-sacrifice. There is no grasp of his daily choices for righteousness or the determination with which he turns away from sinful acts. He is not recognized because he moves against the grain of the flowing crowd and understands that life is found when you lose it for others.
