"And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?"
- John 1:46
 
This question was asked by Nathanael, a man whom Jesus Himself described as being without guile. It did not seem possible to him that the long-promised Messiah should hail from such a small town, with its limited opportunities and its prejudices.
 
Every person shows traces of the community in which he spent his formative years. Paul, in spite of his learning and travels, was at heart a Jew. Jesus belongs to the entire human race. He fits into the . . .

"And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?"

Every person shows traces of the community in which he spent his formative years. Paul, in spite of his learning and travels, was at heart a Jew. Jesus belongs to the entire human race. He fits into the our century as well as the first century.  We are all compelled to admit, "We find no fault in Him."
 
The influence and training of Nazareth could not have made Him a world citizen. Nor could Nazareth have given Him the learning that was His. He reaches into the heart of God and the heart of man. He reveals the eternal plan of God. He opens the way into heaven with the message: "God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have ever-lasting life."
 
So how can we account for Jesus? God's Word gives the answer: "No man has seen God at any time; the only-begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him."
 
Christian friends, In John 1, Philip didn't argue when Nathanael said that someone from Nazareth couldn't possibly be the Messiah. He simply responded, "COME AND SEE."
 
You may be tempted to debate
To change another's view,
But people cannot argue with
The change God made in you.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Christ doesn't need defenders, just witnesses.
