“In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” (Excerpt from John 18:37)
Right Side? Or Wrong Side?
Wow! Who says it better than Jesus!?!?!?! In effect, in this single referenced scripture, Jesus said that if we are on the side of truth, we listen to Him. So…..if you don’t listen to Jesus, who’s side are you on? The side of untruth, confusion, and error? The WRONG side!!
Jesus Said, “I am a King”
Wow again! Talk about power packed! That is what this scripture is!! Before declaring that those on the side of truth listen to Him, Jesus said He is a king!! If you are not a believer, you could read this and declare Jesus was deluded. For those of us who know Him, love Him, and serve God with their whole heart, soul, and mind (as commanded in Matthew 22:37-38), it is Jesus’ verbal confirmation of what we already know: Jesus is Lord! Jesus is King! Of our lives, and of heaven and earth!
Call to Action
If you are not already wholly committed to accepting God’s Holy Word 100%, please pray and make a commitment to study what Jesus said with an open heart and mind. Ask God to remove any and all doubt about the perfection and truth of His Word, and the truth of all that Jesus said. Then, as we continue on these studies in The Jesus Said Project, you can do so with an open heart and an open mind.
God loves us so much that He gave His only Son to die for us to reconcile us to Him and give us a way back home, to Him! If that is true, why doubt, disregard, resist, or ignore ANYTHING He tells us in his precious Word!?!?!? He has proven Himself faithful, true, loving, and righteous. Let’s just humble ourselves, listen to what Jesus said, and let His will (not our will) be done. We can trust that His will, His way, is better than anything we could every think or imagine for ourselves!
