The Works

God’s Work

 3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

revelation

 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

The words living in us

 17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

The words working in us

Jesus Work

 34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

complete

 36But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

Our Work

 38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

 27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

For His kingdom and His righteousness

 18He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

 28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

 29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Believe in God believe in His Son – Anointed Savior

 4I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Show Jesus in us to the world

Jesus shows God’s Name to us.
The Spirit is poured into us. (His Love)

6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Light

The Light of the world

Life in Jesus (Light)

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Eternal life = to know God and Jesus

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Jesus in us

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

believe

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

follow

John the witness

He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Witness, Believe

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Judgment

  • who does truth

    comes to the light

    his deeds may be made manifest

    his deeds are wrought in God

  • who does evil

    loves darkness

    hates light

    his deeds were evil

    does not come to the light

    lest his deeds should be reproved

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

unbelief

For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

reprove

But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Manifest

show

Be a wise builder

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

See

Know

But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Walk

Put into practice

While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.

Believe in Jesus

 14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

whoever does truth → comes to the light

whoever comes to Jesus → will have life

whoever hears → will live (life in himself)

unbelievers don’t come to Jesus

  • do not have the love of God

Done in God

the Spirit

 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

 23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Holy Spirit

Truth = Jesus

 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

 26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

 33Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

 34But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

 35He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

 36But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

 37And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

 38And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

 39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

 41I receive not honour from men.

 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

 43I am come in my Father‘s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

 45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

 46For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

 47But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

 53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

 54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

 56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

    we are Jesus’ disciples

    we will know the truth which will free us

 31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Then we are Jesus’ friends

Because Jesus has chosen us and appointed us,

we will receive whatever we ask in Jesus’ name

 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

great love

 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

made know to us

 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

chose, appointed,

to go and bear fruit

 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.

We are sanctified by Jesus – we are not of the world

We must expect neither reward nor recognition from the world

 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

the world hate

 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

we are not of the world

 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

we will be persecuted

 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Jesus’ name sake

Not wearing wedding clothes

Not believing Jesus’ works

 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

sin

 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

Jesus’ works

 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

hate Jesus without a cause

We must testify about Jesus

what Jesus has done

how Jesus loved us

 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

testify about Jesus

 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Fruit for others

Salt and Light

 13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

 14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

God’s Love

Jesus’ Love

Our Love

 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

 1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

 3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

 4He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
