You’ll See Me and then Know! – Mark 14:61-62

Key Passage

But Jesus said nothing. He did not answer. The high priest asked Jesus another question: “Are you the Christ, the Son of the blessed {God}?” Jesus answered, “Yes, I am the Son of God. And in the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right side of the Great One (God). And you will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven.”

— Mark 14:61-62 ERV (Read Full Text)


Key Thought

Jesus only response—and it is not a defense of himself, but a warning to those who think him an enemy—is that he is the Messiah and that he will return in power from God after they have done what they want with him. Those who were so sure Jesus was evil, those who were so absorbed in killing Jesus to get him out of the way, those who were so sure it was better that he die, and those who are so sure today that Jesus was just a man, will see him. This time, however, it will be when he comes in glory. For those of us who long for his return, this will be a day of glory. For those who opposed him and who do not know him, this will be a day of unrivaled sorrow. Jesus gives us a powerful example of courage in the face of trial. He reminds us that we don’t need to prepare what we will say when we face trials, but that he will be with us and the Holy Spirit will give us the right words to say. Most of all, Jesus is the great witness that those who trust in the Lord will share in the his victory.


Prayer

O Father, may Jesus come soon. Until the day he returns, please use me to serve others and bring them to come to believe in him. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
