high priest and elders tried hard to find a reason to condemn Jesus to death
but could not (Matt 26: 57-62; KJV). Finally, the high priest asked Jesus if he
was the Christ, the Son of God. I was looking at Jesus reply the other day and
it struck me like never before: "Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto
you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power,
and coming in the clouds of heaven” (Matt 26:64).
was so confident in his Father and Jesus knew who he was and where he was
going; He had only one goal, that of complete obedience to the Father. He knew
that his reply to the high priest would mean certain death but he spoke the
truth. How often God prompts us to share the Gospel with another but because of
busyness, fear of rejection, pride or embarrassment, we ignore God’s prompting.
What would have happened if Jesus had not had the resolve he did and had not
given the reply he did?
believe, that just like Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, God gives us divine
appointments to share Christ with people (Acts 8:26-39). God even says he will
give us the words to say (Luke 21:15) and the Holy Spirit sets up those divine
appointments (Prov 3:5-6). All we have to do is show up, do our part and be
obedient. “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner
who repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no
repentance” (Luke 15:7). Let’s do it, it’s a spiritual rush.
