TOPIC: WITNESSES TO THE AUTHORITY AND POWER OF JESUS

TEXT: JOHN 5:30-47


We shall better understand the authority and power of Jesus as we examine the truth from various witnesses. He said "One's own testimony is unacceptable ..." (vs. 31). But there are other witnesses that affirm Jesus' authority (vs. 32). There are also the internal witness of the Holy Spirit and the witness of John the Baptist and the witness of the miraculous works He did (vs. 32-36). The ultimate witness to Jesus' authority and power is from God our Father (vs. 37, 38).


Finally, there is the witness of the Scriptures: "You diligently study the Scriptures because you think by them you possess eternal life. These are the scripture that testify about me." These are the words of Jesus to the Jews who knew the Scripture.


The Bible testifies thus: "In the mouth of two or three witnesses every truth shall be established" (2 Cor. 13:1; cf Deut. 19:15). "For in Christ all the fullness of Diety (God) dwells bodily" (Col. 2:9). Jesus is the only answer to all of our needs. If you have Him in you, you have God's presence in you.


QUESTION

Is your faith firmly rooted in Jesus or do you still consider Him as just one of the gods?


PRAYER

Precious Lord, hold me closely to Your side and let me never wander away from You to other gods, in Jesus name, Amen.
