Luke 14:25 Now great crowds accompanied Him ...
A very short half verse for today. Notice that this counters the suggestion that no-one liked or was interested in Jesus. On the contrary, as the gospels tell us several time, He was actually very popular and was followed around in His travels by large crowds of people who wanted to see, wanted to hear and wanted to follow. This shows what happens when people get a clear view of Jesus and realise just what is going on and how amazing He is.
So where is that today? I'm sure that none of us want large crowds of people following us around, hanging on our every word and watching our every move. But surely, we would be very happy to see large crowds following Jesus. If he hasn't changed (see Hebrew 13:8), then who has?
