Scripture: John (NIV) 5:36 I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish—the very works that I am doing—testify that the Father has sent me.
Observation: Jesus had been introduced by John as the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. (John 1:29) Yet here Jesus claims a greater witness to his identity. That He was sent from the Father could be seen in the works that could not be explained in human terms. They could only be explained by acknowledging that God the Father was at work.
Application: As God was seen in the life of Jesus, so He wants to be seen in my life. Through the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and the gifts of the Spirit (1Corinthians 12) God desires to be seen in my life.
Prayer: Lord, I want my life to be good advertisement for You and Your kingdom. May your character be seen through the fruit of the Spirit and your power through the gifts of the Spirit. Amen
