The prophetic is directional

But probably not the specific directions you ‘need’ right this minute.

He’ll speak more about your identity then your itinerary. More on your calling than your calendar. More on your gift than your game plan.

When Jesus walked the earth he did so neither as a careers adviser nor as sat nav – disciple, that’s still not his function in your life.

But if you hear his voice you’ll still encounter the most helpfully directional words you ever could.

Oxymoron

‘A crucified Messiah’

More incomprehensible to some than ‘a hateful good’ – more laughable to others than ‘an honest politician’.

“A stumbling block to the Jews, and foolishness to the Greeks, but to those whom God has called, from both Jews and Greeks, Christ the wisdom and power of God.” 1 Cor 1:23-4

The person you follow and the path you walk won’t make sense all of the time to all of your people.

But for those with eyes to see it is changing everything.
