Jesus came from above. Some would say, “that’s stating the obvious”, but consider the far-reaching implications of “from above” in Jesus’ own words:
“He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all…The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.” – John 3:31,35 NKJV
Jesus’ teachings aren’t just helpful instructions to “sell” people on; they’re absolutes. They’re absolutely true, they’re absolutely real, and they have absolute consequences. Consider the next verse:
“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” – John 3:36 NKJV
That means Jesus came with authority. He ministered with authority. He reigns with authority. He is decisive, and we serve under His command of the universe! Is fear creeping into your life today? Are you struggling with insecurity? If so, remember these powerful and refreshing words:
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 NKJV
