“the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me.”

Today’s devotion comes from John 5:30-36.  Here is a link to this Scripture – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+5&version=NASB

I quote only the following verses.

“If I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true.  There is another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true.

You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth.  But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.  He was the lamp that was burning and was shining and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.

But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John;  for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.”  John 5:31-36.

“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.”  John 10:25.

“If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;  but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.”  John 10:37-38.

It is good that we testify about our self that we are a Christian.

It is better if others testify that we are a Christian.

It is best if our works testify that we are a Christian.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16.

“You will know them by their fruits.  Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?  So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  So then, you will know them by their fruits.”  Matthew 5:16-20.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”  Ephesians 2:10.
