In our series on the life of Christ we come to the passage where Jesus goes to His hometown of Nazareth. At first everything was alright and the locals even admired Him for how He spoke. Then Jesus appropriated the passage from Isaiah 61 to Himself about the Spirit of the Lord being upon Him. At that moment they were angry and began to push Him off the cliff. Jesus rebuked them for rejecting Him. Isn't this true of us? We like the truth as long as it is comfortable and does not demand obedience. But the moment we are confronted with a truth that demands transformation, we find ways to avoid or even deny it.
