Jesus didn't try to flatter the people or feed their national pride. They had never heard such words from a priest or rabbi. But the ideas presented by this new Teacher held them spellbound. The sweetness of divine love flowed out from Him like fragrance from a flower. Here is Someone who can read the secrets of my soul, each listener thought, but I can tell that He cares for me. With open hearts they listened, and the Holy Spirit helped them understand what men and women have always needed to learn.
Whatever is in your past, however discouraging things may be at this moment, you can come to Jesus, just as you are - weak-willed, guilty, and depressed - and He will meet you with open arms. Although Satan may claim us as his, Jesus' claim and power is stronger.
