Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

How Would You Vote?

For three years people had had opportunity to to be exposed to Jesus’ life, teaching and miracles.  Now the end was near (though they didn’t know that).  The battle lines were being drawn, becoming more distinct—or did some become more fuzzy?  Here’s how some of them lined up, including a few surprises. 

                                               For       Against     Undecided 

Religious leaders                                     √                            

Mary of Bethany                     

Judas                                                      

Nicodemus                              

Joseph of Arimathea                

Jewish crowds                                                     For Him on Sunday
                                                                               but against Him on Thursday

11 disciples                                                  Like deer in the headlights!

What about you?  In which column would your name appear, really? 
Especially when identifying with Jesus is unpopular and even dangerous? 

“Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.…”–Jesus  (Matthew 10:32-33)
