Read John 5:41-47
“For I [Jesus] have come to you in my Father’s name, and you have rejected me. Yet if others come in their own name, you gladly welcome them.” – John 5:43 (NLT)
The truth about our relationship to Christ is wrapped up in the question, “Who’s in charge?” Who is in charge of your life? If it’s you, if it’s your friends’ opinion, if it’s your political or cultural group’s expectations, if it’s anyone other than Jesus Christ, then it’s time to surrender to God’s will. It’s time to acknowledge the Lordship, not just the wisdom, of Jesus Christ.
