John 12:37-43

How can it be that right after the miracles performed by Jesus, his acceptance of the death he would endure, and his words that brought light, many still refused to believe? Is the answer as simple as the last verse we read today? Did they love the praise of men rather than the grace of God? Can you sing the following words?

"I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause;
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause.
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
I'd rather be true to His holy Name....."
