“No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.” John 3:13
Jesus’ theme in this passage is His teaching about how to enter the kingdom of heaven. Take a moment to read this passage and consider the phrase, “No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven.” Jesus is the one who carries the title as the ‘son of man.’ This small verse is an incredible declaration of Christ’s uniqueness in our world. Jesus is the only individual who ever ‘came from heaven,’ and therefore is the only one who is uniquely qualified for the kind of revelation that He gives to this world through His teaching. For He is the only one who ‘came from heaven.’
What kind of authority do you give to Jesus’ words? Do we really look at Christ’s words in the scriptures and consider that He is the only one who has truly ‘come from heaven’? Do we take His words seriously when He tells us to love the hurting people of this world?
- Praise God for who He is
- Confess your sinfulness and need for cleansing
- Allow His Spirit to draw you near
- Listen as He speaks to you
- Pray that God helps us to understand the importance of Christ’s words
- Pray that God helps us to understand Christ’s words
- Thank God for hearing you
- Trust that God is at work to accomplish His will
