Jesus answered them, “My teaching isn’t Mine but is from the One who sent Me. If anyone wants to do His will, he will understand whether the teaching is from God or if I am speaking on My own. John 7:16-17 HCSB
God has allowed me to speak and preach in many different venues. My prayer is always that I will move out of the way and allow God to speak through me. There have been times when I felt very comfortable and the words just seemed to flow. It was on these occasions that I really felt God was in control.
Jesus clearly said that His teaching was from God who had sent Him. The people were puzzled because the religious authorities were trying to kill Jesus, yet He spoke to them in an open forum and the religious leaders seemed to be interested in what Jesus had to say.
Challenge: Listen to Jesus and do what He says. His Words are from God the Father who knows what is best for you. Seek to do His will. He wants you to have an abundant life.
