His Disciples

16 His disciples didn’t understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him, and that they had done these things to him. 17 The multitude therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead was testifying about it. 18 For this cause also the multitude went and met him, because they heard that he had done this sign. 19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “See how you accomplish nothing. Behold, the world has gone after him.”
(John 12:16-19 WEB)

Jesus disciples did not understand what the people were doing grabbing palm branches and praising Jesus as the King of Israel until He was glorified. Then they remembered what was written about Jesus and this had happened to Him. The crowd that was there when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead were talking about it. This testimony caused the multitude in Jerusalem to come to Him because they heard about the sign that He did. The Pharisees said to each other,  “See how you accomplish nothing. Behold, the world has gone after him.”

Today in our culture what draws people to come into the Christian faith many times are the signs that are seen in some churches. A better way to bring people to the Lord is through one on one dialogue that convicts of sin and shows how to obtain forgiveness of the sin and to have a relationship with God. It is not easy to break through the indoctrination of the culture and it takes time to befriend and love a person before he will accept the way of salvation.

Heavenly Father, You sent Your Son Jesus into the world to provide a way for us to be forgiven of our sin and to open the means of having a relationship with You. May we befriend others that we may bring them to Jesus for the forgiveness of their sin and to develop a relationship with You that will provide them with eternal life in Your kingdom. I ask this in Jesus name, amen.

Please worship with this song:
