Jesus Controls the Narrative of Your Life

John 7: 46
John tells us that "no man ever spoke like this Man." A man who was merely a man and said the sorts of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. Either this man was and is the Son of God, or he is a madman.We hear Jesus make incredible statements such as declaring himself sinless, saying "I am the Bread of Life," telling Nicodemus "You must be born again," and telling the lame man to "Take up your bed and walk." Jesus does not intend to frustrate us with statements like these. He intends to draw faith out of us, provoke faith in us; and get us out of ourselves.Our entire existence hangs in the balance of our relationship to Him. He uses discomforts to bring us out of ourselves into a relationship with Him. The only true security is in having no security in ourselves.Like it or not, agree with it or not, Jesus is drawing all people to Himself for He is the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega. All things are consummated in Him.
