Morning: Psalm 80; Genesis 25:19-34; Hebrews 13:1-16
Evening: Psalm 77; John 7:37-52
“So a division arose in the crowd on account of Jesus,” says John’s Gospel. We are still divided about who Jesus is and what he represents. Now it’s a question the world over, not just in Jerusalem. Some offer reasons why Jesus might not be trustworthy. Others marvel at his unique wisdom and his world-transforming story. When you encounter Jesus honestly and openly, like those who first crossed paths with him in Israel, it’s hard to sit on the fence.
