Luke 4:21-30

Jesus tells those in the synagogue that he is the fulfillment of the Prophet Isaiah. They are intrigued by this news until some realize he grew up with them. He then compares himself to other prophets. This infuriates them so much that they drive him out of town. Like the prophets, Jesus is rejected by his own people.

I pray this day for all who are persecuted because of their love for you and their willingness to teach, preach, and live that love.
