Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him. But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew all about people. No one needed to tell him about human nature, for he knew what was in each person’s heart.- John 2:23-25 (NLT)
As Jesus began to be known for the power of His miracles and His teaching, many people were drawn to Him. But Jesus knew human nature; He knew that they had their own idea of what the Messiah would do, and did not trust them to be open to God’s plan. In the same way, when we are acting in the power of the Holy Spirit, people will be drawn to us. We must make sure to connect them to God rather than let them make us out to be someone great, and then use us for their purposes.
