Savior in Our Midst

Sitting in Starbucks, sipping on coffee, looking out over a pond and pastures with cattle roaming, listening to praise music, reading the Bible, journaling.

It just doesn't get much better than this.

Now, you tell me. In how many other large cities could you say that?

Dallas is a great place to be alive.

I am reading through John and I am constantly amazed at how much power our worldview and perspective has to blind us to truth.

For instance on John 10:24, Jews ask Jesus, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly."

Look. Jesus has been making it crystal clear from the very beginning who He is. In fact, the Jews and the religious leaders were ready to kill Jesus twice already for blasphemy because Jesus claimed to be the Son of God. The truth is, because they believed that the Messiah could not be as human as Jesus was they could not see the Messiah standing right before their eyes.

And isn't that so much like us? We get so blinded by our pain, our circumstances, our pride that we miss the Savior standing right before us in our lives.
