Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

In Jesus There Was Never Any Hesitancy

There is one element in the character of Jesus which is well worthy of our consideration.

It is the element which, in default of a better word, one might describe as His decisiveness. 

In other men, even the greatest, you catch continually the note of hesitancy. 

Even in the most dogmatic person you have the occasional sense of possible mistake.

But in the Jesus given us in the Gospels there is not the faintest trace of such a hesitancy.

There is an absolute and instantaneous certainty in the face of every problem and perplexity.

In other lives, if such certainty be found, it is found generally in exalted hours. It is found in those rare and elevated moments when the mists are scattered somehow, and we know. 

But with Jesus this decisiveness was normal.

He had not to wait for any glorious hours. It never seems to have left Him for an instant as He moved among the villages of Galilee.

From the first recorded utterance of His boyhood, "Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?" on to the last glad triumph on the cross, when He exulted in the thought that it was finished, there is not visible one shadow of perplexity, nor any halting as of uncertain feet, nor any clouding, even for a moment, of the serene decisiveness of Christ.
