27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this?” Matthew 8:27a NIV
They were amazed at His teaching, for His message was with authority. Luke 4:32 NASB
The prophetic words of Jesus
Reminds me of who I am.
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. John 15:16a NIV
Informs me of where I am.
Calls me back to where I belong.
Shows me the hope of the way forward.
13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. 1 Peter 1:13-20 NIV
How do I respond to the prophetic voice of Jesus
Confess and repent where I’ve chosen the wrong path.
Commit to allow God’s word to guide my future choices.
Choose to pursue a life of holy love.
1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 1 Peter 2:1-3 NIV
