In our daily life, we often hear someone saying, “This person looks like a bad guy,” “This person doesn’t look like a decent man,” “This person looks nice, and he might be easy to get along with.” … We often judge a person to be good or bad with our eyes and imaginations. As a result, we are prejudiced against others and even hurt others because of our actions. But in fact, we do not know about them at all.

Because we live in our own imaginations and conceptions, it is easy for us to define others, comment on people, things, and events around us, and even define the work of God according to our imaginations and conceptions. Just like the earliest Pharisees, they believed that the Lord would be called Messiah when He comes. In fact, when the Lord arrived, He was not called Messiah, but the Lord Jesus. Because the Pharisees clung to their own imaginations and conceptions, they did not acknowledge that the Lord Jesus is God and refused Him. Moreover, they believed that the Lord Jesus would be born in a palace with an extraordinary appearance. However, the Lord Jesus was born in a manger and looked ordinary, which made them refuse Him even more. Because they thought that God could not be like this. They also thought the Lord Jesus would not preach outside the temple, and so on. It was their imaginations and conceptions that made them be enemies with God, and ultimately, they nailed the Lord Jesus to the cross, committing a heinous crime, so that the whole of Israel suffered unprecedented destruction.

Today, two thousand years later, every Christian has been looking forward to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was recorded in the Bible, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). Facing the return of the Lord Jesus, we need to be cautious and careful and learn from the failure of the Pharisees. We cannot use our imaginations and conceptions to arbitrarily define and judge God’s work, but seek with humility and watch and wait like wise virgins. Only in this way can we receive the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
