Luke 11:29-32

The crowds began to gather as they always do.  Perhaps they have heard rumors of what could be…the Messiah.  Many heard about his teaching, some his miracles, and others his healings.  They are all coming, looking, and wondering.  Perhaps looking at his appearance.  Was there something about the way Jesus looked that would have been a clue?

Why do you come looking for Jesus?  Is it about a need or healing?  Are you part of the crowds that gather?  Interesting that the activity of the crowds is gather and maybe ask questions.  While crowds may gather, followers follow.  Are you a gatherer or a follower?

The crowd isn’t concerned about faith, they ask for a sign or proof.  Jesus speaks of the sign of Jonah who preached destruction and the people heard it and repented.  Jesus then tells them the queen of south will rise and judge with the wisdom of Solomon is here.

Jesus compared his current generation to the Ninevites and when the judgement comes.  Nineveh will be better off for they have heard and repented.

This current generation hears, but do they gather to question instead of follow?

Do you gather with the crowd or follow the Savior?
