“Straight From the Mouth of God”
You are invited to read the following passage.
44 Then Jesus cried out, “When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
47 “As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
The religious people and other Jews wonder who Jesus was. He told them on many occasions, but they would not believe. The Jews always wanted to see a miracle. Jesus gave them many miracles, yet they would not believe.
I remember a movie, where one of the catchphrases was “The Truth, you can’t handle the truth.”
As we study God’s word, I believe that saying convicts, many in this world, God’s Word says this about Truth.
32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
