Overwhelming Evidence (John 12)

When the large crowd of the Jews learned that Jesus was there, they came, not only on account of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus.

Lazarus, who was raised from the dead, was a threat to the pharisees’ power, so they sought to kill him. Did you catch that? The proof that Jesus was who he said he was, he was able to have power over death, but that didn’t matter… they didn’t want God any way but their way. When you share Jesus with others, and you need to, don’t be surprised when people disbelieve in the face of overwhelming evidence. So when someone does choose to follow Jesus, it’s because God has broken through (not because we’re so convincing). Keep following!
