Going Viral

Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias), and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs he had performed by healing the sick. John 6:1-2

Jesus is continuing to draw crowds wherever he went. Why? “because they saw the signs he had performed.” Good news like that spreads like wildfire. I think they thought that this was history in the making and they wanted to be part of it. He was what we would call “going viral.”

The Jewish leaders certainly didn’t like that but now that he’s drawing a crowd, it would have been very difficult for them to do anything to him.

What are you doing right now that is “viral-worthy?” What are others saying about what you say or do that is liable to spread? It doesn’t have to be anything grandiose or miraculous like Jesus did, but our actions should reveal who we are.
