When it comes to the one who is weak in faith, it is appropriate to greet him but not to engage in a debate about his beliefs.

After all, who are you to pronounce judgment on a servant of someone else? It is in the presence of his own master that he will either succeed or fail.

In order for us to share in Christ’s resurrection from the dead, we were buried with him in baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too may walk in newness of life.

The heavens and the earth were created by God in the beginning of time. The earth was devoid of shape and empty, and darkness hung over the surface of the ocean’s depths. And the presence of the Holy Spirit was hanging over the surface of the waves. As soon as God declared, “Let there be light,” there was illumination. And God saw that the light was pleasing. And God divided the light from the darkness in the beginning. God called the light Day, and the darkness Night, and he created them both.

Heaven and earth were established by God at the beginning of time. The earth was devoid of shape and empty, and darkness hung over the surface of the ocean’s surface. While all was going on, the Holy Spirit was hovering over the waves. And God commanded, “Let there be light,” and there was light in the beginning. And God noticed that the light was pleasing to his eyes. And God distinguished between light and darkness. It was God who gave the name “Day” to light and “Night” to darkness. That evening and the morning of the first day came and went without a hitch.
7 Times Jesus said “I Am”
A crucial statement said by Jesus is repeated seven times throughout the Gospel of John, making it the most essential phrase in the whole book. Jesus says the words “I am” over and over again. His character is shown in its entirety through this repetition. The Source of All Life And Jesus responded to them by saying, “I am the source of all nourishment. He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never thirst, because I am the bread of life.” -Matthew 6:35 After spending a peaceful night alone in the desert, Jesus said these remarks.
- In spite of this miracle and these remarks, the people were still looking for a proof that they might put their faith in Jesus, according to some accounts.
- Jesus reassured them that, despite the fact that their forefathers had been fed manna, they were no longer alive.
- Jesus, in his role as the Bread of Life, extends to everyone of us the gift of everlasting life.
- He who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life shining in his heart and on his face.” -John 8:12 (KJV) These comments were spoken by Jesus to a gathering of people who had just seen an astonishing event.
- During an effort by the accusers to deceive Jesus by asking if He believed the lady should be stoned, Jesus remained silent and scribbled in the sand.
- Then, turning to face the remaining members of the audience, Jesus informs them that He is the Light of the world.
- The Front Entrance “I am the entrance.
In John 10, Jesus drew on a theme that was known to each of His listeners: the role of a shepherd.
Anyone who sneaked into a sheepfold by any means other than the door was not allowed to be there legally.
Jesus is that Door, and He is the only one who can lead a person to redemption.
“I am the good shepherd, and I am here to help you.
He is the Shepherd; he is the One whose voice the sheep recognize and recognize as theirs.
Jesus, in his role as the Good Shepherd, gave his life in order to save everyone of us.
He who believes in Me will live, even if he dies as a result of his faith.
Do you believe what I’m saying?” -John 11:25, 26 (NIV).
It is too late for Jesus to save their brother Lazarus, who has passed away.
Jesus, on the other hand, has other, more urgent intentions for Lazarus’s recovery.
The Way, the Truth, and the Life are all the same thing.
No one else can do these things for you.
He warned them several times, but they refused to listen or heed his warnings.
Jesus, in his role as the Way, the Truth, and the Life, is God, and he is the only one who can save us.
“I’m the vine, and you’re the branches on the tree.
His audience grasped the significance of the vine as well as the dependence the branches had on the source of nutrients and water that he was describing.
This repeating phrase “I am” appears seven times in the Gospel of John. Each repetition adds another layer of insight to His nature, until we are able to see Him in His flawless physical manifestation.
7 Earthshaking Things Jesus Said in One Chapter of the Bible
No one has ever spoken with the authority of Jesus. “I’ve never heard a man speak like this man” (John 7:46). I have an old book with the fantastic title “657 of the Best Things Ever Said” tucked away somewhere in my house somewhere. It’s only one person’s view, of all, and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the majority of the quotations are ridiculous. As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is undoubtedly true that the list of the “greatest things ever uttered” is also subjective.
In fact, there are literally hundreds of millions of people all around the world who agree with the early Galileans’ assessment that “no one has ever spoken like Jesus.” Our Lord spoke a total of one thousand mind-boggling things that had never been heard before on the face of the planet, all of which were startling, magnificent, and unforgettable.
- No one was bored when Jesus took the stage to preach.
- Even more astonishing than everything else he has stated are these seven words from him.
- It’s unquestionably a gold mine.
- Confession: As I read this beautiful text, I find myself continuously exclaiming in my heart, “Such knowledge is too great for me; it is too lofty for me; I will never be able to reach it” (Ps.
- Yes, it is correct.
- We will have barely scraped the hem of his robe by the time we are finished, this is so rich.
- Given that the Lord’s people see through a glass darkly (1 Cor.
God’s wisdom and understanding are described as “the depth of the riches both of God’s wisdom and knowledge!” “How impenetrable are his judgements and incomprehensible are his methods!” (See Romans 11:33.) Now we’ll go on to the final portion of Matthew 11.
That filthy Sodom will suffer better on the day of judgment than they does is infuriating!
Some people will have a more difficult time in judgment than others, just as some people will earn a bigger Heavenly recompense than others when it comes to salvation.
We didn’t make it up either.
“Wood, hay, and stubble,” as opposed to the more imperishable “gold, silver, and precious stones,” were mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 3:11–15 as examples of Christians’ activities.
Paul states that regardless of the cause for their worthless deeds, “If any man’s work is burnt up (in judgment when “it is to be exposed with fire”), he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, albeit it will be by means of fire.
The idea that comes into play here, in my opinion, is: What you did with what you were given is what matters.
People who have everything and then turn into hypocrites, deceivers, and abusers are bound for the lowest levels of hell.
Heaven’s champions are those who have persistently served God despite facing the most difficult circumstances, while bearing the heaviest loads, and while persisting until the end.
At that point, Jesus responded by saying, “I applaud thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for concealing these things from the wise and clever, and revealing them to babies.” 2.
I assume that when the Lord spoke, some people raised their heads in disbelief, refusing to trust him even before the words left his mouth.
Every pastor understands how you feel.
I can picture some Mensa members being perplexed as to why Scripture appears to be such a load of nonsense.
They have been rendered unavailable to him by the real God, much to his eternal distress, and have been disclosed to the children!
According to Jesus’ teachings on a number of times “Unless you humble yourself and become as little as a child, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” (See Matthew 18:16 and Luke 18:16 for examples.) Those who refuse to do so will lose out on some of the most spectacular sights the cosmos has to offer.
- It is impossible to get at the gates of glory with the attitude of having figured out God and avoiding the cross.
- I think that’s a fantastic metaphor for eternal existence.
- The only solution that makes any sense is the one that Jesus provided us.
- Isn’t that a bit anti-theological?
- “It delighted God to know that individuals who believed would be rescued as a result of the foolishness of preaching” (1 Cor.
A large number of individuals would like to see this change.
Cookies with a lot of bite.
We conceited earthlings who have elevated themselves to the position of Divine Advisors will simply have to cope with it.
“It is difficult to satisfy God if one does not have faith” (Heb.
“Our God is in the skies; he accomplishes whatever he pleases,” says Psalm 115:3, without qualification.
No, I do not.

The Lord Jesus is unmistakably functioning in the place of the All-Powerful God.
He is either a first-degree usurper or the Son of God manifested in the flesh, depending on how you look at it.
This one is absolutely mind-blowing: (“Christ is the image of the unseen God, who is also the firstborn of all creation,” says Paul).
it was through him that all things were made for him.
Also, he is the head of the body, which is the church, and he is the beginning, as well as the firstborn from the dead, in order that he himself may come to have first position in everything.” —Colossians 1:15–18 (New International Version) “For in him all the fullness of Deity resides in physical form, and in him you have been made whole; he is the supreme ruler and authority in all the earth.” —Colossians 2:9–10 (New International Version) Jesus is the Messiah.
- He’s the one in command.
- Jesus is the Supreme Ruler of the universe.
- “No one, not even the Father, knows who the Son is” (Matt.
- This one had to have driven his audience up the wall with his ramblings.
- What kind of person does he believe he is?
- He works as a carpenter in Galilee.
- It did then, and it continues to do so now.
While listening to Jesus preach and watching him work, the multitudes were left wondering, “Who is this man?” “I’ve never heard a man speak like this man.” Jesus Christ was the son of Joseph, a carpenter from Nazareth, and the Son of God.
He was the Son of Man as well as the Son of David.
Good luck with attempting to sort it all out.
They are massive, far-reaching, and life-altering in their impact.
According to the scribes and Pharisees, this may have been the most enraging statement they had ever heard from this itinerant teacher from Galilee.
It’s hard to imagine stating anything like, “No one knows God but myself and the individuals I introduce to him.” “I am a very humble person,” you say after you have turned around.
Both realities exist at the same time.
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” he declared in John 14:6, referring to himself.
He is the one who opens the door.
He is, without a doubt.
It’s all about Jesus, after all.
This is what the apostle John said about the law: “The law was given to Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.” In all of history, no man has ever been able to see God; however, he has explained him to us through the only begotten God, who resides in the bosom of the Father.” —John 1:17–18, verses 7–8 I will give you rest when you come to me, all you who are weary and burdened.” Assume my yoke upon you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart; and you will find rest for your souls in doing so.
- “Because my yoke is easy, and my burden is light,” Jesus says in Matthew 11:28–30.
- I’ll make sure you get some rest.
- My yoke, if you will.
- It’s all about Jesus, after all.
- We must not separate this wonderful invitation from everything that has come before it.
- If there is just one God in the cosmos, there is no reason to believe that he must be good.
- (By the way, it is exactly the accusation leveled against him by radical atheists.).
- They are able to read one another and feed off of one another’s rage.) God is love, and God is love.
- Salvation is completely free.
“If you are willing, you can make me clean,” our Lord said to the leper who, in violation of all rules, ran to Jesus and fell down before him, saying, “If you are willing, you can make me clean,” our Lord responded, “I am willing.” (Matthew 1:41) Ladies and gentlemen, we have a Savior who is ready and eager to save us.
Is it possible that we’ve been blessed?

When Jesus Says “Go!” – Don’t Stay! – Missional Challenge
When I was reading through Luke 9-10 the other morning, I was struck by how many times Jesus says, “Go,” which I found quite interesting. It didn’t take long for me to recall that one of Jesus’ final commands before departing this world was to “Go and make disciples of all countries.” Those words of Jesus have been repeated again and over again, and they have inspired many Christians to participate in the work of Jesus. Despite this, three times in the book of Luke, Jesus encourages his followers to “Go.” “Your responsibility is to go and preach the arrival of the kingdom of God,” Jesus tells a man who expressed an interest in following Him (Lk 9:60).
- Later in the chapter, Jesus speaks to a religious law expert on the need of expressing mercy to your friend and encourages him to “go forth and do the same” (Lk 10:37).
- You cannot follow Jesus while remaining in your current location.
- Going necessitates that you go in the direction in which you have been directed.
- It’s familiar and frequently comforting to just remain in one’s current location.
- It is less hazardous.
- We’re going to go no matter what the expense is.
- Following Jesus everywhere he goes may be evident in your deeds rather than your words.
It proves that you are unfit for the kingdom by continuing to stay (or even “looking back.” The fact that you are still here is evidence that you are not kingdom-focused.
His instructions are for them to pray for laborers, and then He promptly dispatches them to the harvest field as laborers.
Jesus cautions them that the road ahead will be difficult.
It’s not a possibility at this point.
There will also be people who reject them–which means that they are rejecting Jesus as well as the One who sent Him in the first instance.
Preach the gospel of the kingdom.
Accept the offer of hospitality.
Jesus sends them to people’s homes, where they will live with them, bless them, and have meals with them.
Instead, he sent them out to invite people to himself.
As Jesus Himself lived (Jn 1:14 – “dwelt among us,” this is incarnational living–just as He taught us to do.
If there were just two instances in which Jesus shouted “Go!” in Luke 9-10, they would be: In the setting of my house, food, and discussion, I believe my most accurate description of going would be “Proclaiming in the context of discourse.” A guy who had been mugged and abandoned on the side of the road was saved by a Samaritan man who showed compassion and displayed kindness to him, according to Jesus.
- After illustrating what it looks like to love your neighbor, Jesus instructs his followers to “go and do the same.” Go and offer kindness to those in need.
- give to everyone who asks.
- give to everyone who asks.” “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful,” he says after that, which is a profound lesson (Lk 6:36).
- His kindness never cease to amaze me.
- “Go and do the same,” Jesus instructs.
Love your next-door neighbor.
Those who are sent by Jesus are not only called to proclaim God’s kindness; they are also called to exhibit God’s mercy.
I’ve been one of those Christians who is quick to declare, “I don’t have the gift of compassion,” when the opportunity presents itself.
However, this is not an excuse.
When Jesus says, “Go,” you are not allowed to remain.
Because Jesus is merciful, I am also able to be merciful.
He sends me to love others, to bless others, to offer mercy–in other words, to represent the gospel in a tangible way to the world.
The time has come for me to leave–and to learn from Jesus how to be more kind and merciful in my own life.
You can’t stay when Jesus says, “Go!” According to Oswald Chambers, if you are aware that Jesus has instructed you to go but choose to remain, “it simply implies that you do not trust that Jesus means what He says.” “Go!”
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”
“I am the way, the truth, and the life,” Jesus says. “There is no other way to the Father but through me” (John 14:6). Christians are frequently chastised for stating that Jesus is the only way to reach God via faith. Because there are billions of non-Christians in the globe, this isn’t surprising. Is it really true that we are so narrow-minded and bigoted that we believe these individuals would be denied entry into paradise just because they were born in the wrong nation or were taught the wrong religion?
I don’t understand how this differs from other forms of spiritual racism.
5 Those who object to such proposals have a valid argument.
One individual cannot have a monopoly on truth or proclaim his “way” to be the sole road to God, because neither of these things are possible.
There is only one God, and he took on the form of a man in the person of Jesus Christ to reveal himself to us.
If there is only one God, or if there are many, and whether there are numerous ways to know him or just one, an infinite creature may state with confidence that there is only one God.
He does not claim to be able to provide life; rather, he asserts that he is the source of all life.
This allegation was made by Jesus earlier in John’s gospel to the Jewish people who had come to hear him speak.
They worshiped the God revealed in the same Bible that Jesus read, and they were zealous in their pursuit of obedience to his laws and regulations.
Afterwards, Jesus informed the same group of people, “If you do not accept that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins” (John 8:24).
Wallace’s fame expanded tremendously as the number of victories he achieved increased.
.he claims that he is the only Way.
“Hello, my name is William Wallace.” A sceptical warrior, on the other hand, screamed, “William Wallace is seven feet tall!” “Yes, I’m aware of what you’re saying,” Wallace responded.
As well as fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning, if he were here, he’d engulf the English with his gaze” (laughter from the soldiers).
A large army of my countrymen is standing up against oppression, and I am heartened by this.
There was no other William Wallace in existence.
A similar situation occurred when the people of Israel read about God in their Scriptures, but now he had appeared to them personally.
On the same evening in which Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through me,” he also stated, “If you truly know me, you will also know my Father.” From this point forward, you are aware of him and have seen him” (4:6–71).
In response, Jesus said, “Don’t you know who I am, Philip, even after all this time that I have been among you?” Anyone who has seen me has also seen the Father, and vice versa.
(Voices 8–9) Neither was Jesus demonstrating arrogance, nor was he in the process of encouraging “spiritual racism.” He only expressed the obvious fact.
As Jesus roamed on planet, he demonstrated what he is genuinely like and provided us with the chance to come to know him personally.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life,” Jesus declares emphatically to us.
“There is no other way to the Father but through me.” Consider this:Jesus claims to be the Way. He’s saying that he’s the only way to do things. Following Jesus may necessitate the renunciation of other interests. How much of yourself would you have to give up in order to follow Jesus?5
