John 10:39-42



KJV(i) 39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, 40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode. 41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. 42 And many believed on him there.


John 10:39-42
New International Version (NIV)

39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.

40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true.” 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

39 This was not the first time they tried to get Him but they could not get Him until it was time. There may instances where the Lord spares us so we can serve Him further, this happened with Paul, he was stoned but was raised to further serve the Lord.

40 Sometimes we need to go back to where we once were to see where we are now. Doing this shows us how far we have come. We need sometimes t regroup and remember why e are doing what we are doing there maybe a reason back in our past.

41 People came to Jesus people went and found where He was to go see Him. People who truly want to come to Jesus or hear the truth will come out to hear it if they can. The place they were at had the people think about John and what he had said. John spoke about Jesus but only spoke words Jesus did wonders. Jesus may have had more followers than John during His lifetime due to Him performing miracles. John’s ministry may have lasted longer while he was on earth but, Jesus has not yet ended.

42 The people came to faith, the seed had been planted by the teachings of John and by the miracles of Christ and they had times to think about these things. Sometimes people need time to reflect on things the Lord has done. Sometimes we Christians need to be used by God to plant the seed of the gospel and give time for the Spirit to work that seed inside the person.
