Jesus answered them,
“I told you, and you do not believe;
the works that I do in My Father’s name,
these testify of Me.
²²At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem; ²³it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon.
²⁴The Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, “How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
²⁵Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me.
My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
One day an educated, non-Christian, gentleman was asked: “Why do you want to become a Christian?” He replied: “Because of what Jesus Christ and His disciples are doing in my country.”
This young man had not been a student in a mission school, or a patient in a mission hospital, or one who had received any sort of relief from a Christian agency. He had never been inside a church.
This young man had seen Christian schools, hospitals, and relief agencies at work.
To his heart and mind they bore convincing witness to Christ.
The young man concluded: “I will follow Him who serves my country’s need, for I can trust Him to serve my spiritual need.”
A few days later another young man, a college graduate, stood before a small congregation to be baptized. “Have you accepted Christ?” He was asked. “It’s better than that,” he replied. “Christ has accepted me. He has come into my heart and changed me completely. I know Him now as my Lord.”
▪︎ Thank the Lord for His works that bear witness of Him; the works recorded in the New Testament, and the works being done in our day, in all parts of the world.
▪︎Ask the Lord to let His works be done in you today, to bear witness for the glory of His name, and the good of His people.
