Mad, Bad or Messaiah
Jesus went home, and once more such a crowd collected that they could not even have a meal. When his relatives heard of this, they set out to take charge of him, convinced he was out of his mind.
Jesus reputation has grown like wild-fire. He has become the latest "hot prophet" at a time when prophets came, flared brightly and then died away. His family is concerned He is to become another casualty.
There are three possibilities about who Jesus is. He is either mad, bad or who He says He is. His teachings have stood the test of the greatest minds over the past two thousand years, ruling out He was mad. The enduring love that He has invoked over the same period of time rules out He was bad. This leaves who He says He is.
"But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." Jn 20:31. This makes all the difference for everyone, for me, today.
Thank you Jesus that You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. I place my trust in You.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
