I was reading my Bible this morning and I read an interesting passage that grabbed my attention.
“Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did at the Passover Celebration, many began to trust in him. But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew human nature. No one needed to tell him what mankind is really like.” (John 2:23-25, NLT)
Jesus really knew.
Many people these days “follow” Jesus the way they follow Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber on Twitter. But if they ask Lady Gaga or Justin, they wouldn’t know a thing about them. Why? There really isn’t any relationship.
Unfortunately, what happened in John chapter 2 still happens to this very day.
People follow the miracles and not the Miracle Worker.
They follow the blessings, not the Blesser.
They follow the healing, not the Healer.
Who or what do you follow? Jesus or His miracles.
Good question to ask ourselves every single day we wake up.
