Jesus said, “Don’t bicker among yourselves over me. You’re not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. John 6:43-44
This messages was to the disciples but also cost His life. Everyone had different ideas of who the Messiah was and what He would, should and could do. He was defying the world and the church norms because He was letting the Father be in charge.
We have the choice too.
Dissect, chop up, categorize and argue or follow the Shepherd who is calling His sheep…
“The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making. But some of you are resisting, refusing to have any part in this.” (Jesus knew from the start that some weren’t going to risk themselves with him. He knew also who would betray him.) John 6:63-64
Are you going to hide in the pile or dive into His plans?
