Weekday devotionals for Christians

Who Are You?

Joh 10:24  Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

Joh 10:25  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.

Joh 10:26  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

Joh 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Have you ever used the statement, “Put the jelly on the bottom shelf”?  The Jews, to whom Jesus was talking, were asking Jesus to simply tell them if He was THE CHRIST!  The Jews because of their unbelief, did not believe that He was the Christ.  Jesus’ response back to them was, “I told you already and you didn’t believe me.”  And He then goes on to repeat what He had previously said to them about His sheep hearing His voice.

The thought today is simply this: sometimes we get wrapped up in the things that do not matter and miss the miraculous things that are in front of our face.  I know this applies to me also.  The Jews were so wrapped up into their man made, religious rituals that it caused their faith to waiver even when their Saviour was right in front of them doing miraculous things.  If we as christians can focus more on the Bible and what God says to us, then we will notice more of the things that are happening around us.  Let’s not get distracted in religious things to miss out on the miracles that are taking place all around us!  God will always reveal Himself to you and me, will we be attentive enough to notice?
