The Resolve Of Christ!
The high priest and elders tried hard to find a reason to condemn Jesus to death but could not. (Matt 26: 57-62) Finally, the high priest asked Jesus if he was the Christ, the Son of God. I was looking at Jesus’ reply the other day and it struck me like never before: "Thou hast said: nevertheless, I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven" (Matt 26:64; KJV).
Jesus was so confident in his Father and Jesus knew who he (Jesus) was and where we was going; He had only one goal that of complete obedience to the Father. He knew that his reply to the high priest would mean certain death but he spoke the truth. How often God prompts us to share the Gospel with another but because of busyness, fear of rejection or embarrassment we ignore God’s prompting. What would have happened if Jesus had not had the resolve he did and had not given the reply he did?
I believe that just like Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, God gives us divine appointments to share Christ with people (Acts 8:26-39). God even says he will give us the words to say (Luke 21:15) and the Holy Spirit sets up those divine appointments (Prov 3:5-6) All we have to do is show up and do our part; be obedient. “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance” (Luke 15:7).
Let’s do it, it’s a spiritual rush. Share this.
