Wednesday March 30th: The Authority of the Son

“The Son can do nothing on His own”

John 5:17-30

Whenever truth is spoken, the hearer must take notice.  While truth can be discomforting or disconcerting, it should always oblige us to take needed action.

When He spoke to the people in the temple, Jesus only spoke the truth, declaring Himself to be the Son of God the Father and taking all authority from the Father.  To the people, His words seemed bold indeed!

But Jesus could do no less than declare what was true, since He always does the Father’s will and He IS Truth itself.   “I am the Way...” Undoubtedly, when He equated Himself with the Father, His words further scandalized them. His words echoed the “I am” of God the Father and continue to do so.

If we believe that Jesus is not only the Son of God, but that He IS Lord, then our whole lives should be centered firmly on Him.  May Jesus Christ always be the foundation of our lives, as we pray daily, “Jesus Christ IS Lord, to the Glory of God the Father!”
