The Gospel of John Lsn # 95, “Some Things Are More Important Than Even A Right or Just Cause”
Today, we’ll see that when the Lord Jesus Christ read the minds of His followers, He quickly got away from them all completely because inevitably it’s the spiritual life that makes the difference for mankind and not political leaders or their policies.
Jesus Christ has an eternal kingdom that He wants to share with everyone; He’s not on the scene in His First Advent just to promote a renewed Jewish nation that may last for a few hundred years at best.
To enter God’s eternal kingdom, we have to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ and the purpose of His Son’s miracle in John 6:1-15 is to focus attention on the provision of His cross but these fair-weather disciples by their negative reaction to God and His marvelous truth, have rejected His glorious Gospel.
And God uses us in spite of our weaknesses;2ndCor 12:9-10 But He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for CHRIST’S SAKE, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Recognition of the principle that the Lord Jesus Christ is the God-man causes believers NOT to worry about anything.
The Lord Jesus rejects those who reject Him.
The people were more impressed with what they had eaten than the Person who provided it.
Nationalism and provision instead of the Lord Jesus Christ and biblical truth equals nothing.
Jesus always separated Himself from people who wanted to use Him.
We must learn to distinguish between the plan of God and the activities of men. Why are we here? To represent the Lord Jesus to the world.
Their cause was a deviation from the plan of God for the humanity of Christ’s life. There are things more important than even a right or just cause.
