When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it became known that he was at home. Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them, not even around the door, and he preached the word to them.
What was it that drew crowds to Jesus? When he came around…people flocked to hear him teach. No one had ever spoken the way he was speaking…words that inspired, healed and touched hearts. Jesus spoke words of comfort to the broken. He brought news of God’s unconditional love. He was a light of hope. All clamored to hear him. The only critical words we ever heard Jesus speak were directed to the Pharisees…the rigid religious leaders who arrogantly believed they had all the answers. They held the people to stringent rules and guidelines without compassion. Which spiritual leaders today remind you of the Pharisees…and which remind you of Jesus? I don’t know about you…but I’m listening to the ones who mirror love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion.
