Taking Part

Taking Part

31. JCH6: 36-59

CHRIST was explaining the dynamics of His works and responsibilities to people in order to apprise them of what GOD has sent HIM to do. Even CHRIST who is GOD had His work description laid out for HIM. HE made it clear that His source of living was from GOD and the reason for living must be lived out as planned by the ONE who gives Life.

To believe is what GOD is asking us to do before He gives us this Bread of Life. It was the Israelites’ murmuring in the wilderness that made GOD send down manna for them to eat. But the manna should not be kept till the next day for it would rotten/perish. Had it been that they believed GOD’s Words as spoken by Moses unto them without complaints, GOD would have given them the True Bread of life that can never perish.

The True Bread

30. JCH6: 22-27

So many seek for miracles and not GOD; they seek for provisions like jobs, exotic cars from GOD, but they rarely seek the truth of the LORD. They only seek for miracles but fail to realize that for every miracle, there is a purpose attached. Though we need bread for our daily needs but this bread alone cannot make us live the Life of GOD. It is the word of GOD that should be our priority and the bread would come running after we have digested the Word of GOD, which is the bread of the Life of GOD.

GOD already knows what He would do because He knew the end from the beginning. So whatever situation GOD opens our eyes to see or notice has already been settled by GOD. What He wants from us is Trust. He is our help and our provision. The situation that we find ourselves may look impossible but it is GOD’s way of showing us that He can do all things and that only He can call forth what is not as though they were.

28. JCH5: 41-47

JESUS was not particular about what people perceived HIM to be. He was not moved by people’s conclusion about HIM because the only thing He was particular about was the honour that GOD gives. He also desisted from creating any image before men as He was only focusing on letting everyone see GOD – The Father.

True Witness

27. JCH5: 31-40

The only way GOD can witness Himself in our lives is when we do what He wants us to do and He glorifies Himself in the process. GOD will witness Himself through us if all His parameters have been met through His grace. He is the one that gives purpose and He must be the one that gives directions because He knew the end before the beginning; He masterminded them all. Let us simply be His vessels and let HIM speak and do as He desires!

All the prophets witnessed about CHRIST through their prophecies . . . they never witnessed themselves but only spoke according to the Spirit of the Lord upon them.

Whenever people come to us, who they must see is CHRIST because the moment we gave our lives to HIM, we have made a covenant that everything we do must be about HIM only. We do not witness ourselves but GOD through CHRIST. To the audience, we are witnessing GOD but To GOD, He is witnessing Himself as GOD and witnessing us as His own. As we glorify GOD with our lives, He would also glorify us with Himself. You would know the people that are of GOD based on how well CHRIST is represented in what they speak or do.

LORD, I am rededicating my life to You today! Help me to live in the confession of my salvation when I said “I give my life to You.” Let the summary of my story be Your Glory!

True Authority: Dependence on GOD

True Authority: Dependence on GOD

26. JCH5: 24-30

Even CHRIST had utter dependency on GOD while He was living among men. He said “I can of Myself do nothing“. Although GOD had given HIM all the right to judge, He would not judge without being led by GOD. This goes to all as leaders that we all are. When GOD gives us the right to rule and judge the affairs of some set of people, He is expecting us to trust HIM for direction as He trusts us with the lives of these people; hoping that we will not falter in our duties.

True Discipleship: GOD, JESUS and Us

25. JCH5: 15-23

This is the perfect example of Father-Son relationship. The only example of discipleship and fatherhood we should strive to follow always. It is a relationship based on love and trust. A relationship based on the equality as the goal of the discipler (CHRIST) and obedience and honour as the elements to be found in the life of the disciple (Saints). Though GOD had given CHRIST the freedom and authority to judge, CHRIST would not do anything except the Father approves. Whatever He said or did was a function of GOD’s heart per time. Although He also had things to say that were evidently from the same GOD yet He would not speak them until GOD gave the permission

  • 24. JCH5: 10-14

After being made whole or being healed, it was important that CHRIST told him what he must do or not do for his healing to be permanent. Sometimes, difficulties we face are results of our sins and disobedience to the Word of GOD and asking for healing is like asking GOD for forgiveness. So when CHRIST healed the man, He made sure to tell him that sin was responsible for predicaments.
