All Things Have Been Put Under the Power of Jesus Christ.

Rev. Tse Amable | July 4, 2024 | John 13:1-17

KEY VERSE: Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God” John 13:3 (NIV)

 

MESSAGE:

One of the lies the devil uses to frighten us and to bring us into bondage to him is that he is powerful. Using all kinds of half-truths and fears, Satan makes us believe he is all-powerful. But that is a big lie. Yes, Satan is powerful but Jesus Christ is more powerful than the devil.

 

Jesus Christ knew the  Father had given all power to him. He declared this in Matthew 28:18  “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”.  In  John 14:30, he said, “.... the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me”. Apostle Paul affirmed “... God placed all things under his feet” (Ephesians 1:22) To the Corinthians, Apostle Paul wrote “For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet” (1 Corinthians 15:25).

 

Let this truth encourage and make you bold. All things have been placed under the power of your Saviour, Redeemer and Deliverer. And the Bible says “You are more than a conqueror through him who loves you”.

 

Let the following truth cause you to stand firm on your faith: “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

FEET AND HANDS FOR THE MESSAGE:

How are you demonstrating the truth that ALL THINGS have been placed in the power of Jesus Christ in your life as one of his followers? What are you doing to fulfil the Great Commission of making disciples in all nations for Jesus Christ?

PRAYER:

Father, I thank you for this truth that all things are put under the power of Jesus Christ. Take away from my heart any fear which will lead me to put myself under the power of the devil. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING.

SHOWERS! BLESSINGS!!

 

DAILY word study: ALL THINGS The Greek phrase translated as "all things" is "πάντα" (panta), which encompasses everything in the broadest sense. It implies totality, completeness, and universality, indicating that nothing is excluded from this scope.

 

In John 13:3, "all things" refers to Jesus’ knowledge of His divine authority and the extent of His mission. This verse reveals Jesus' awareness that the Father had given Him control over everything, emphasizing His divine sovereignty and ultimate authority. This understanding framed Jesus' actions during the Last Supper, underscoring the deliberate nature of His humility and service in washing the disciples' feet. It illustrates the paradox of Jesus' divine authority and His willingness to serve humbly, reflecting the nature of true leadership and love in God's kingdom.

Reflections

How can we follow Jesus' example of using our authority and influence to serve others selflessly and humbly?
