then there’s Nicodemus

Devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2422

John 7:45-52

Joh 7:45 Then the assistants came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, “Why have you not brought him?”
Joh 7:46 The assistants answered, “No man ever spoke like this!”
Joh 7:47 Then the Pharisees answered them: “Have you been led astray too?
Joh 7:48 Have any from the rulers or Pharisees believed in him?
Joh 7:49 But this crowd, which does not know the law, is accursed.”
Joh 7:50 Nicodemus– the one who came to him previously and who was one of them– said to them,
Joh 7:51 “Our law doesn’t decide about a man before it hears from him and knows what he’s doing, does it?”
Joh 7:52 “You are not from Galilee too, are you?” they replied. “Inquire and you will see that no prophet arises from Galilee.”

then there’s Nicodemus

In an age like ours, we think that the truths of Christianity have been buried behind a meter thick façade of agnosticism. It was like that in Jerusalem at the time recorded in this text. But, then, there was Nicodemus. He was not ready to feed Jesus to the popular wolves just yet. Today we have such people in leadership as well. They deserve our support.

LORD, bless those in leadership who are willing to stand for your truth, and show us how to bless them as well.
