There is a very strange dialog between Jesus and the Jews of His day. In John 8 they claimed Abraham is their father, and so he was by natural generations. The problem that Jesus points out is that they were not doing the works that Abraham did, thus denying their claim. After further cross-examination and rebuttal, they state “We have one Father – even God” (8:41). They fell right into their own trap.”
“Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me” (8:42).
Jesus Christ has come from the Father and His presence is undeniable through the Holy Spirit’s witness. The question is whether our love for Him is clearly evident in the way we live, speak and proclaim Him to others. Remember what Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep my word…whoever does not love Me does not keep my words” (14:23-24).
What difference has Christmas 2016 made in your love for Jesus? Your obedience to His word will advertise where your love really is.
