Knowing God’s voice
Jesus chose twelve apostles from among hundreds of disciples. He gave preferential treatment to three of the twelve. He didn’t heal everyone. He didn’t feed every hungry crowd. He stopped in the middle of a virtual parade and invited himself over to Zacchaeus’ house. Why him? He ensured that strangers would live and allowed Lazarus to die. And what about the incident at the pool of Betheseda? John tells us that Jesus singled out one man among a great number of disabled people….the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. I don’t mean to be critical, but you can’t help but imagine him tiptoeing through the crowd saying, Pardon me, excuse me, pardon me, excuse me. Jesus received specific instruction from his father. Ask God today who to invite to take a closer look at Christ and the church.
