Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: John 7–7
When you bring Jesus into a conversation, you instantly polarize the room. Some people love him, others hate him. In our desire to avoid offending others, we keep quiet about Jesus and wait for an opportune moment. Is that the way the Jesus presented himself? Was the early church known for waiting for just the right moment so they were sure not to offend? It was just the opposite. They brought Jesus into conversations expecting he would divide the room. That is the way the church grew.
