Day 8 – John 14:7-11

Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Read John 14:7-11

V7: Only through Jesus can we truly know God as Father – and to know Him is to know the Father. He came to show us the Father, with whom He is eternally One (John 1:18) God is a spirit, but we see Him truly revealed and reflected in Jesus.

V8: Philip, still not understanding, says eagerly “Show us the Father” – We want to see God!

V9: Jesus, who has been with them 3 years now, says if they really know Him, theyknow the Father. (John 10:30) How many say they want to know God, but will not look at or listen to Jesus!

V10: Here is the intimate oneness of Father and Son (and the Holy Spirit too.) Here is the mystery of God’s being, but He reveals it to us in His Word. Yet, one with the Father from all eternity (John 1:1), in His human nature Jesus acts only on the Father’s authority, His Words and Works are the Father’s. He came as the perfectly obedient Servant of God. Our great example.

V11: Again, He calls them to believe in this Intimate Oneness, and declares that the very things they have seen Him do should be sufficient witness to the truth of all He says. The Gospel records present that witness to all who have eyes to see!
