For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God. —John 5:18

What so many people do not want to acknowledge what the Jews in Jesus day knew He was claiming. They wanted to kill Him for blasphemy because they knew He was claiming to be “equal with God” by “calling God his own Father.” Yes, the Jews knew what Jesus was claiming and wanted to kill Him for it! The vast majority of people today do not know who Jesus is. Let us tell them!

People can deny who Jesus is today, but that does not change who He is and what He is doing. Brother and sister, let us rejoice in our King of kings and Lord of lords! We are safe in His hands and He is fulfilling His purposes. Let us be faithful to Him today and for the rest of our lives. May we also be faithful in proclaiming Him. Yes, so be it!

Dear Father, I am grateful to know Your Son. Thank You for drawing me to Him. Today I ask You to draw my son and his wife to Jesus as You did me. May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. May it be so!
