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.

22. JCH4: 43-54

The Galileans did not receive the testimony of CHRIST until they saw the wonder and miracles He performed in Jerusalem. They did not honour HIM by believing that He was truly sent from GOD as He was proclaiming all around Judea and Samaria. He was too familiar to them that they could not honour HIM by believing in His Words. They could not honour HIM until they saw what He could do and the power He wielded.

GODLY ETHIC: Rejected But Not Discouraged

4. JCH 1: 9-13

 

CHRIST in His divine wisdom manifested His essence, shared His words, healed the sick but despite all that, He was still not accepted by many people. CHRIST came just like every other man to share the gospel with the people but He was rejected. They were not looking for a mere man but for someone who looks great on the outside. Even though many rejected CHRIST, it did not stop Him from doing what the Father instructed Him even to the point of dying on the cross.
