Destroy Both

Then the leading priests and Pharisees called the high council together. “What are we going to do?” they asked each other. “This man certainly performs many miraculous signs. If we allow him to go on like this, soon everyone will believe in him. Then the Roman army will come and destroy both our Temple and our nation.”

~ John 11:47-48 [NLT]

It’s clear, the priests and Pharisees had just witnessed evidence Jesus had raised a man from the dead. Rather than be filled with amazement and awe, instead, they were filled with fear. They were afraid of losing what was most dear to them, their temple and nation, which had a higher place in their heart than seeking God. Seeking God reorders our priorities and allows us to realize truth. Pray today for God to reveal if you are holding onto anything that stands in your way of recognizing the miraculous signs in your life.
