Looking around us, we see the world being overwhelmingly happy about it’s so called beauty. People honour celebrities and the self-glorified lives that they live. Thanks to the followers of the famous ones, the rich and famous become richer and more famous. The same thing happened during the time of Jesus and also after his death and resurrection. The majority of the people did not want to believe the truth nor accept the Messiah. At the time of Jesus, people were more than willing to be misguided by the misspelt truth of the world. People went to the extent of killing “the Way, the Truth and the Life” because they were blindsided by misconceptions. In Jesus’ era, what seemed more important for the people were issues regarding rituals, practices and laws which were bound by human traditions and laws. Because of this, people were unable to see God even though he walked among them – their eyes were closed and their minds were tightened. And they did not recognize God.
Prayer: Abba Father, let your Spirit come upon me.
