"For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak"
(John 12: 49).
Today's text shows Jesus' reliance on God the Father who sent Him on errand to the world. It implies that own personal agenda. He came to do only what God assigned Him to do. As such, Jesus relied on God the Father in everything He did during His earthly ministry.
There are many preachers and pastors today who claim they are of Christ, but their messages contradict the gospel and life of Christ. They spread their erroneous opinions. Christian youths must beware of such false prophets and preachers. God is not glorified in their ministrations. They use social media, including audio - visual resources, to spread their damnable teachings. As we receive Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, He becomes our Master. We must not do anything without consulting Him. We must seek His counsel on all issues and be ready to do his Will.
CHALLENGE: Jesus must be honoured in my life every day.
