I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT
Some people are quite adamant when it comes to hearing about Jesus. I wonder why they protest. Perhaps there is some longing deep inside to know Jesus. Perhaps someone earlier on pushed Jesus on them too much so they rejected Him. Perhaps they asked Him for something specific and it never materialized so they chalked Him off altogether.
I always listened to people who would come up to me and want to talk about Jesus. I admired their assertiveness. I thought that if I had a testimony, I might wish I could do the same. I probably had numerous possible testimonies if I had thought more deeply about Jesus’ influence on my life. Some aspect of me must have been saying “I don’t want to hear about it.” Such a thought, in me, was probably subconscious, so I was unable to deal with it. I wonder how many of us have subconscious objections to Jesus that need to be brought to the forefront so that there are no barriers to getting to know Him. I am thinking that every one of us has something like that going on. Let us pray that these mental barriers will be taken down by us so that we might know Jesus and be saved. Whatever has caused the “I don’t want to hear about it” mentality can be changed to an enthusiastic “Tell me more! I want to know more and more about Jesus!” In Jesus’ name!
