A Safe Place ACEO by Sharon Yoder

My Connect Group at church (a cell group type Bible study group) has been studying the book of John for the last few months and I have been constantly struck by two things: God's mercy and graciousness to us in sending Jesus into the world and the people's inability to understand just who Jesus was.

Throughout the book of John we repeatedly see that the Pharisees, the general public and even Jesus' closest disciples do not really understand why he has come.  He is variously considered a Rabbi, a miracle man, a crazed demon-possessed man, and at one point the people even try to make him king and overthrow the Romans.

But John the baptist had these amazing words to say when he saw Jesus: "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!  This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'  I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel." John 1:29-31.
