Finding Portland (John 1:46)

This is a very cool video.

This production company took hundreds of thousands of still photos of the city of Portland and put them together in a video montage.

Even for those who live in Portland or know the city very well, this new presentation gives a completely novel perspective on the city. In fact, it may even motivate those who love the city to appreciate it in a greater light. And for those who do not know the city, it may encourage them to come and see it for themselves.

And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”
Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
John 1:46

Anyone who has ever heard the name of Jesus Christ will have an opinion of Him. It may be praise, hatred, fear...but you will have an opinion. For some, He is just a teacher, a great teacher for sure, but nothing more. For others, He is a great man who was unjustly murdered. Yes, He is  a great teacher and a great man but He is much more. He is God incarnate!

Some of His first disciples had their doubts; they were skeptical of His claims, His character, even His town of origin. Nazareth? What good could ever come from there?

Jesus invites us to come and see what He is all about. We may think we know Him but like the video of Finding Portland, what we think we know about something or someone may change when we view it in a new perspective. Take the time to seek a real and living relationship with Jesus Christ.
