He Who Comes From Above Is Above All

John 3:25-36

John told his disciples concerning the Lord Jesus, “He must increase, but I must decrease”. He rejoiced that the multitudes were now following the King whose way he had prepared.

John said of Jesus, “He who comes from above is above all.” Again he said, “He who comes from heaven is above all”.

The Lord Jesus is more than a prophet. He is the holy Son of God who came down from Heaven. He is above the Herald who told the people of His coming.

John had an earthly origin. He was frail and sinful, though God did speak through him. The Lord Jesus, by contrast, is perfect and sinless.

The message that we must proclaim is that Christ is above all.

Christ is the only begotten Son of God. He is the brightness of His Father's glory; He is the express image of His Person.

Christ was in the beginning with God. And all things were made through Him.

He is above all because the Father loves Him and has given all things into His hand. He is above all because He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The message of the love of God, who gave His beloved Son to die for sinners, is wonderful!

John testified about Jesus who came down from Heaven.

But most people rejected his testimony.

The vast majority today continue to reject Christ and they do so at their peril!

The chapter closes with a solemn warning about the wrath of God: He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

Only the Lord Jesus is able to save sinners. Those who refuse to trust in Him have the wrath of God hanging over them. They are condemned and have no hope!
