123. “No one ever spoke the way this man does” (John 7:46).
The chief priests had sent their guards to arrest Jesus, but the guards returned empty-handed, and this is their excuse. No one ever spoke like Him? Wow! That’s an amazing impact. These who are assigned to be against Him can’t pull the trigger on their assignment. Here’s a truth that often eludes us. It’s the person and manner of Jesus that compels people to come to Him. That’s why learning to be like Him is the critical path for each of us.
