We are going to read a verse of all verses. This is the evidence that Jesus believed he was the Son of God. This is not some delusional fantasy. He had a self-consciousness that was birthed within him from the eternal God. He and the Father were one. We are going to stay on this verse for a few days, there’s lots in it!

“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” (Matthew 11 v 27)

Are you weighted down by people or circumstances?

Do you feel intimidated?

Are you burdened today because you feel weakened by what is in front of you?

All things. In one of the most forthright things Jesus ever said alongside the sayings of ‘I am’ he is making the point that he was not self-appointed. He is the real deal, there is no other. God sent him. He was given all things. But this does not mean there was a time when he didn’t have all things. He is not a secondary being. There was never a time when God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit were not eternally there.

All people will bow their knee to Jesus. No matter how many self-declarations of importance there are through the many media platforms; no matter how many put-downs you have received from arrogant leaders and managers; no matter how much power and wealth are lorded over the weak and marginalised; they don’t have it all.

Jesus has it all.

Jesus at the centre of it all
Jesus at the centre of it all
From beginning to the end
It will always be, it’s always been You, Jesus

Nothing else matters
Nothing in this world will do
Jesus You’re the centre
And everything revolves around You
