45 Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, “Why have you not brought Him?” 46 The officers answered, “No man ever spoke like this Man!” (John 7:45–46, NKJV)
The officers had been tasked with arresting Jesus (Jno. 7:32). But, upon hearing Him speak they were astonished, and returned empty-handed. Truly, no man ever spoke like Jesus! And no wonder; He is the Christ, the Son of God. So, we are made to wonder why it is that so few are willing to listen to Him today? His words have not changed. They continue to be the words of eternal life (Jno. 6:68). Take time today to read your Bible and by doing do, listen to what Jesus is saying to you (Heb. 1:1-2).
