Can Anything Good Come from Nazareth?

“Nazareth!” exclaimed Nathanael. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?”
“Come and see for yourself,” Philip replied. (John 1:46, NLT).

What is your Nazareth? What is that thing or place — or person — through which the Lord wants to reveal Himself to you; but in order to see Him, you must get past your prejudice and opinions?

“Come and see,” Phillip said to Nathaniel — and he did so. And is so doing He found Jesus — Jesus of Nazareth. And He can still be found today by those who are willing to “come and see.”

Here’s a poem I wrote about this —Rylie

N is for the nothing you will find there.
A is for the awful sight you see.
Z stands to say that it is last there.
A is anger walking in the streets.
R is really wanting so to leave there.
E is evil coming for to dwell.
T is trouble standing on the corner.
H of course has got to stand for hell.

Put them all together, they spell Nazareth.
Lowly town of ancient Galilee.
Can anything good come from such a place as this?
The answer is surprising as you’ll see!
For out of ashes beauty has arisen,
and out of darkness light has come to be.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the answer.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth is He.

And now…

N is for the new life found in Jesus.
A is for the all He is to me.
Z stands for Zion’s walls around me.
A says I’m absolutely free.
R is for redemption’s blessed story.
E says that He is mine eternally!
T is for the thankfulness I give Him.
H is for the heaven where I’ll be!

Can anything good come from Nazareth?
Can anything good come from me?
