The Magnet

Magnets either pull objects towards themselves or repel them in the opposition direction. The magnetic field that surrounds a magnet is invisible, but we know that it is there, because we can see the impact of that field.

When I think of the life of Jesus, it is interesting how he had a similar affect on people. Either he drew them to himselves or he repulsed them. However, what is the most interesting thing about Jesus is that he attracted the people we would least expect him to attract - Jesus seemed to draw people who were considered to be scum by the religious people. And on the other side of the scale, Jesus repelled those religious people who were challenged by him - they were deeply threatened by his Life and ministry.

 ·       “Why do you eat and drink with such scum?” – Luke 5:31

If you considered yourself as a magnet of sorts, are you attracting people to Jesus or repelling them?

Living in Grace
