It Was Noised!

By on April 1, 2012

“It was noised that [Jesus]
was in the house.”
(Mark 2:1 KJV)

Traveling about preaching the Good News, Jesus made a trip to Capernaum, as He needed a place to stay, for He had no place to lay His head. (Matt. 8:20 NIV)

The people heard that he had come home. (Mark 2:1 NIV) In those days, word of mouth was the internet of the day. Passing from one neighbor to another, the excitement grew as the news of His arrival spread quickly through the city. (Mark 2:1 TLB)

“Soon the house where He was staying was so packed with visitors that there wasn’t room for a single person more, not even outside the door.” (Mark 2:2 TLB)

Scholars say this was probably Peter’s house. Filled to capacity. Packed with those who loved Him. Crowded with seekers. Crammed with listeners.

What packs your spiritual house, your heart?

  • Is it filled to capacity with all of Jesus, squeezing everything else out?
  • Is it so packed with love for Him that it overflows to others?
  • Is it crowded with thoughts of seeking Him?
  • Is it crammed with listening to Him?

Has it been noised that Jesus is in your house?

Easter Blessings, Lynn
