Devotional – John 7

46 The officers answered, “No one ever spoke like this man!” 

The world has known great philosophers, great thinkers, and great prophets, but put all of their thoughts, all of their teachings, all of their beliefs and all of them combined do not match up to the claims that Christ spoke, for none of these men spoke as God. Yes, we can say that there were some who spoke for God, that they were given a message by God and declared “Thus says the Lord…” But only one has come from heaven, only one is God in the flesh. As God Jesus spoke words that no one else could say. He said that no one comes to the Father but by him. He said he was the good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep. He said that he was the bread and water of life from which we gain eternal life. No one has ever spoken like this man and no one ever will. He is the unique God-man who came to save sinners, calling them to repentance, giving them life and glorifying them for all eternity in his presence. Christ has spoken and if we truly are his sheep we will hear, listen and obey his words. Words that “no one ever spoke like this man.”
