John 7:4 (KJV)
For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
The methods and tactics of Christ are foreign and strange to those of the world. Jesus, his brethren believed, was full of self ambition yet He had the perfect opportunity to spread His name worldwide if He did His miracles in Jerusalem during the feast, when Jews from around the world were gathered there.
Jesus did not go with them but He did go. When He arrived He did not do miracles but taught the Word of God.
Men who do not believe become easily frustrated with God because He doesn’t do things as they would.
- He doesn’t make a huge show
- He doesn’t build crowds with impressive deeds
- He doesn’t impress souls with pomp and splendor
Jesus uses simple, quiet consistent methods of teaching preaching and encouraging. These methods do not build the great crowds but they do develop faithful followers.
