Bold Claims

Jesus made many bold claims, here is one:

Light image“I have come
as a light to shine in this dark world,
So that all who put their trust in Me
Will no longer remain in the dark.

… I have come
To save the world,
NOT to judge it.

All who reject Me and My message
Will be judged on the day of judgment
By the truth I have spoken.
I don’t speak on My own authority –
The Father who sent Me has commanded
Me what to say and how to say it.
And I know His commands lead to eternal life;
So I say whatever the Father tells Me to say.

Jesus, John 12:46-50

Jesus is our source of truth. Paul explained the priority of Jesus:

I have had one message
for Jews and Greeks alike:
the necessity of
repenting from your sins,
turning to God, and
having faith in our Lord Jesus.

But my life is worth nothing to me
unless I use it for finishing
the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus –
the work of telling others
the Good News
about the wonderful grace of God!

Paul, Acts 20:21 & 24
