Description

The crowds were amazed at Jesus and were in awe of His power. They marveled at the sick healed and the demon drove out. They were astounded at His authority and His words. The temptation for Jesus was to buy into and set up an actual throne. The disciples and the crowd would have helped Him do it. They were primed and ready. But Jesus never wavered in keeping His eye on what really mattered…the Father. Jesus knew that His real power was in His connection and obedience to the Father. Jesus reminds the disciples and He reminds us that success for those that would follow Him, is always found in the ability to trust and follow the Father, whether it leads to popularity or death.
