What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.”
The religious leaders asked Him to tell them plainly, and Jesus does: “The Father and I are one.” How much more clear can it be? If they really wanted to hear the truth, it was there for them and it was Jesus.
He tells them the promise God has given us through the work of His Son as well, that if we believe, we are His eternally and no one can change that. Unworthy as we are, Jesus came to make things right, that we might be saved from our own wrong choices and be part of His plan.
How many times will Jesus need to make His point for us? Are we like those who keep asking when He has already answered? Listen for His voice and follow, knowing that He is the eternal answer, the solution to every problem we face and our only hope of salvation.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of our Savior who came to change the world by changing us. Help us to hear the answer we need every day, and to go in Your name to share that with everyone. Amen.
