28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these words, the people were astonished at his doctrine.
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the Scribes. The teacher with authority; the one who was in the beginning the word.
John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Jesus is the word of God, Jesus was with God and Jesus is God, and Jesus was in the beginning with God.
All things came in to being through Jesus, and apart from Jesus nothing came into life that has come into life.
In Jesus was life, and the life was the light of man.
His light shined in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it.
Jesus speaks with authority because He is the ultimate authority concerning man and creation.
And in His authority He has told us how to live a healthy prosperous life in Him.
We are to be gentle humble spirits, we are to strive after and desire righteousness, kind, forgiving and compassionate towards others, we are to be pure in heart having one goal that is to see Jesus, we are to be peacemakers looking to make peace at all times.
For we will be insulted and persecuted if we fallow Him and they will say flats unkind and evil things against us because of Him.
But when these things happen we should be pleased about it for it shows we are doing the right things. (An enemy will not resist you if you are not a threat to it.)
You are the light and the salt to this world and if you do not let the light of Christ shin through you and are not living a life of Christ your light will be darkness and your salt will have no effect on this world.
Jesus also has not done away with the Ten Commandments He took them from just an action to a state of mind, and to think sinful thoughts are just as bad as doing sinful deeds, the heart and mind are the greatest battel field.
when asked which commandment is the greatest Jesus responded with “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind, and the second is like it, Love your neighbor as yourself”.
Matthew 5,6 and 7 layout how we as Christians are supposed to live our lives if we want to see heaven, it is a narrow path to walk but our guide, the Holy Spirit of Christ has been given to us to lead, guide and teach us throughout our life in Christ.
We could not desire a better guide or teacher then the Spirit of the one with all authority, the Christ Jesus, the one who is the word, the one who is with God, the one who spoke life into being in the earth, the one who gave you your life, as light to shine to all who are around you.
So go forth in grace and let your light shine before men so your heavenly Father may be glorified, and be proud of His children.
If you don't know Christ Jesus all you have to do is open your heart to Him, ask to be forgiven of your sins, and He will be faithful to forgive you. Ask Him to come in to your life surrender all to Him, except His forgiveness, and except His Holy Spirit as your guide and teacher, get involved in a local church that teaches the bible, the word of God find that narrow path and live a free full and long life.
