John 12

Read John 12 – Moments of eternal significance – we often miss them.  There are words and events that linger for years, yet in the moment they seem simply ordinary or even odd.  Mary washed Jesus’ feet with perfume and her own hair; Jesus knew the significance of this while the others missed it entirely.  Judas only saw his own ill gotten gain being wasted (12:1-8). 

We can look with hindsight at Jesus’ triumphant entry in to Jerusalem, when the people lined the streets with palms and shouted, “Hosanna in the hightest!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” (12:12-15).  Notice that even the disciples missed the significance of this moment, :16.  

We get another moment of MAGNITUDE in vs :28-30… God spoke from heaven and the people heard it, yet many dismissed it as simple thunder. 

Beloved, pray your heart would be prepared and tuned in to the divine!  Jesus says, “Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going.  Put your trust in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light,” :35b-36.  God is at work all around you. ✋👀👂💖👂👀✋
