Jesus meets persistent resistance in the Jewish leaders. They choose to argue Jesus out of their lives. Arguments have no place with faith. Mental battles keep energy in the head, blocking that faith which comes from the heart. We are called to pass from death to life in Jesus.
Belief is a vigorous, total surrender to the Lord. Surrender in faith and rest secure in the hands of Jesus. The Lord Jesus is with you; no one can snatch you away from his hands.
Inwardly command whomever or whatever pushes for prominence to back off. All that matters is the presence of the Lord in whom you live, move, and have your being.
What are these?
You know me; I follow You. v. 27
You give me eternal life v. 28
No one snatching from Your hand v. 28
Doing works of the Father v. 37
This is the Seventh in Easter, Year A.
