May each of us be a light in the darkness.

John 7:27

Some of the people in Jerusalem said, “But we know where he is from. When the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.”

+++

Jesus did not get the respect of many.

They had their minds made up about the coming Messiah.

Who did this Jesus think he was?

Following your calling isn’t easy.

Many people will reject you.

If you are trying to make a difference, if you are trying to stand up for people who are ostracized by society or who are considered outsiders…watch out.

The powers that be will not take kindly to you.

But this did not stop Jesus.

He stood up to those who opposed him – but not with any violence.

Instead, Jesus spoke words of truth and he continued to heal and befriend those who were outcasts.

We are all called to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

People are in need of help…especially now.

How can God help them if not for us?

Do you hear God calling you?

Stop.

Be still.

Listen.

What are you being called to do to spread compassion and truth in this time and place?
