Who Sent Me

by | Purpose

(John 7:28 NLT)
”While Jesus was teaching in the Temple, he called out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I come from. But I’m not here on my own. The one who sent me is true, and you don’t know him.”


The passage in John 7:28 delves into Jesus’ teaching at the temple, emphasizing a critical distinction between earthly understanding and spiritual discernment. Jesus addresses a crowd familiar with his physical identity and background but lacking insight into his divine purpose. He points out that while they may know him physically, their knowledge is limited to his earthly origins in Nazareth, missing the profound truth of his divine mission.

Jesus redirects their focus from his human identity to the deeper purpose behind his presence on Earth. He stresses that he isn’t there on his own accord but as a result of the Father’s divine mission. The essence of his message lies in acknowledging the truthfulness of the sender and aligning with the divine purpose rather than being defined solely by earthly perceptions and backgrounds.

The prayer accompanying this reflection highlights the importance of discovering one’s divine assignment and recognizing the authenticity of the sender. It encourages individuals to prioritize their divine mission over worldly identities, fostering resilience and confidence in navigating life’s challenges by anchoring themselves in the truthfulness of the sender and their divine purpose.
