"Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things." John 8:28
IN JESUS TODAY!
Fifty shades of gray or one coat of red? God's words, the words of Jesus are written in red to indicate the blood that was spilled to confirm these truths. There are so many opinions in the world today and we are expected to be tolerant to them all, so many shades of gray, areas that without God's say, we cannot say they are truth. They are only opinion. The Bible teaches us, "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12 Will we follow opinions that are written in many shades of gray, these opinions that lead to destruction, those that are based upon our thinking, manipulated by selfish ambitions, lusts, greed, and all those things that seem right, or will we follow what is written in red, that which leads to life, confirmed by God, and paid for with the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross of crucifixion? Really! Did you know that each word written in red has been paid for by Jesus on the cross? For each word the drops of Jesus' blood has been spilled! Words are cheap, but not these words, not the words of absolute truth, these are not cheap! Each one of Jesus' words has been confirmed in heaven, there is no "should I" "what would you", or "maybe's" These are absolutes, solid truths that bring life unto the believer! "As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things!" Written in red is confirmed by God as absolute undeniable truth, bought and paid for, so that we will know the way to go without second guessing, or being stuck in the gray!
There is only one way that leads to life and Jesus' words written in red is that way, "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6 There are no shades of gray with Jesus, only absolute truths in love, and his way is confirmed in the red of his blood!
