Message from Jim Callahan, High School Teacher

And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes. Matthew 7:28-29 English Standard Version.

How encouraging it is in this day of relativism, skepticism and pragmatism to know that our Lord and Savior is one who has taught us with authority. Jesus has spoken to us today in the Scriptures with the self-attesting authority of the living and true God. We need not accept the words of Jesus because they agree with our government, the latest findings of the most respect scientific journals, and/or the consensus of scholars in our community. We must accept his teachings because in him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. We must accept his teachings because he is the one who has been given all authority in heaven and on earth. We must accept his teachings because he is the creator, owner and sustainer of all things. Jesus Christ is the one who has the unqualified right to tells us what to believe and do. He is our sovereign Lord and as such we must not just hear his words but also be very careful to put them all into practice.
