How Much is Jesus Worth to You?

John 5:19-31

Journey Thru John
Description

Pastor Jeff Ferguson reminded the audience that the terms "Father" and "Son" used in John's gospel are in no way biological references, rather, they are positional references. Like the Pharisees and religious leaders of Jesus' day, modern world religions and even some claiming to be Christian fail to give equal value to Jesus.  He is substandard or marginalized when compared to Jehovah, Allah, Elohim, or the Architect of the Universe. 
In John 5:22,23 Jesus declares the reason why the Father has given His Son the realm of judgement.  "For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:  That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him."
The term "honour" is from the Greek word "timao" defined as "to fix a value to, to estimate value."  We place value on things we want, things we will expend time, energy or wealth to obtain. The Pharisees claimed to value God, yet they failed to place equal value on the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus words are clear, to fail to honor the Son is to infact, dishonor or place no value upon the Father.
What value are you placing on Jesus Christ?
