The Journey

I’ve Never Heard Anything Like it (John 7:40-52)

Scripture: John 7:40-52

No one has ever spoken like this man. This is one of the most profound statments in all of scripture. I’ve heard a lot about church and religion but there is something different about Jesus. He divides, He confuses but we still say no one has ever spoken like this man. What do we do with what he says?

We each have to dicide what we are going to do with the words that Jesus said. We have to dicide for ourselves is He a prophet, is He a deciever, or is He the Christ? Does His words bring comfort, judgement, or confussion? Jesus has always caused division in people but there is one thing He always does, and that is to encourage us to think about our relationship with God. Today I encourage you to think abut the words that Jesus has said over the past days, the words others say about Him, and consider what He has to say to each of us. I encourage you to be open to His friendship and be willing to join in with His disciples along the journey.

About jwquaker

I’m sure everyone wants to know who I am…well if you are viewing this page you do. I’m Jared Warner and I am a pastor or minister recorded in the Evangelical Friends Church Mid America Yearly Meeting. To give a short introduction to the EFC-MA, it is a group of evangelical minded Friends in the Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado. We are also a part of the larger group called Evangelical Friends International, which as the name implies is an international group of Evangelical Friends. For many outside of the Friends or Quaker traditions you may ask what a recorded minister is: the short answer is that I have demistrated gifts of ministry that our Yearly Meeting has recorded in their minutes. To translate this into other terms I am an ordained pastor, but as Friends we believe that God ordaines and mankind can only record what God has already done. More about myself: I have a degree in crop science from Fort Hays State University, and a masters degree in Christian ministry from Friends University. Both of these universities are in Kansas. I lived most of my life in Kansas on a farm in the north central area, some may say the north west. I currently live and minister in the Kansas City, MO area and am a pastor in a programed Friends Meeting called Willow Creek Friends Church.
