Today’s reading: John 7:1-5
Seek God’s approval
We read in John 7:1-5:
1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him. 2 Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. 3 His brothers therefore said to Him, “Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples also may see the works that You are doing. 4 For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world.” 5 For even His brothers did not believe in Him.
At this time, Yahshua wrought many of His miracles in Galilee and other places, but not primarily in Jerusalem. Basically, what His brothers were saying is that if you want to prove your Messiahship, gain more followers, and improve your popularity, go to the biggest “stage” of all, Jerusalem — the center of religion.
Yahshua’s brothers seemed to be sarcastic. After all, they don’t believe Yahshua.
For the brothers of Christ, they thought that Yahshua can prove He is the Messiah by getting the approval of the people.
Actually, that’s not how things work. What’s the use of getting all the approval of the world when you didn’t get the approval of Yahweh?
For Yahshua, God’s approval is more than enough.
You can be at peace knowing that the Almighty approved of you. If you are secured in God, then it really doesn’t matter whether people will approve of you or not.
Therefore, always seek God’s approval, not man’s.
