2014 Lenten Devotional - Friday, March 14
Posted on March 14, 2014 by Sister Carol Perry

Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” - John 1:46

Nathanael has prejudged Jesus and found Him wanting because He comes from the “wrong side of the tracks”, as it were. Nazareth was a village tucked away in the mountains. Rabbis did not originate there. With much wisdom, Philip does not start a religious argument, but rather simply invites his friend to come and meet the one he would scorn.

Meeting Jesus changes everything, doesn’t it? Shall we bring our prejudices to Him in prayer today?
