All Things Under His Control

All Things Under His Control

There are occasions in the Gospel of John when seemingly things are not under the Lord Jesus’ control when actually they are.

For example:

At His betrayal. As Judas was going to betray Him, the Lord said to him, “What you do, do quickly” (John 13:27).

At His arrest our Lord said to His enemies, “If you seek Me, let these [ disciples] go their way” (John 18:8).

At His trial, Pontius Pilate the Roman governor, said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?” Jesus said to him, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above” “  (John 19:10,11).

At His crucifixon He said, “It is finished!” (John 19:30).

Of His resurrection He said, “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I have power to lay it down of Myself, and I have  power to take it again”(John 10:17,18).

Does the Lord have control of our lives?
