John 11:45-48

“Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him, but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the Council and said, “What are we to do? For this man performs many signs. If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation” – You know, the Pharisees did not deny that Jesus performed miracles; rather, they resisted that change that witnessing and hearing of Jesus’ miracles required them to make — that is, acknowledge that Jesus is real and to believe that he was the only begotten son of God the Father. In a similar vein, today there are all types of signs to let people know that Jesus is real, but just like the Pharisees of old, people continue to resist the truth and not believe. Friend, if you find yourself in this mindset, I beg of you, don’t be a Pharisee! I pray today that you would turn your heart over to the Lord and let God have His way in your life while it is yet day!
