I tell you the truth // 05-10-20

“Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I AM! ”” John‬ ‭8:58‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Jesus made some amazing truth statements about Himself! This one almost got Him stoned to death because He was effectively saying that He was God! As CS Lewis put it: ‘A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher…Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.’ Jesus, I believe in You! Give me opportunity to declare with my mouth that You are Lord! Lead me to those that need to hear Your truth and need to be freed by Your truth. Help me to speak truth in love to all those I meet this week. Amen 🙏🏼
