GOOD NEWS ABOUT KNOWING GOD
John 14:6-11 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
PERCEPTION // What I see/hear God saying/doing:
Jesus is saying I am “the way”… and I have been showing you “the way”…and any time you want to know the heart of the Father look at the God/Man – Jesus
PLAN // What I am going to do about it:
In the coming week, I am going to spend an hour re-reading the Gospel of John to focus on the Father’s heart.
PRAYER // Seal the deal:
Father, I really want to know You. Open my eyes to see Your true heart through the life of Christ my Lord. Reveal Your knowledge and wisdom so I can “BE” a better follower.
