Believe the Works #628

37  If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38  but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him. (John 10:37–38, NKJV)

Jesus does not expect you to blindly follow Him. Faith is not blind; it is built upon evidence (Heb. 11:1). With eyes wide open, faith sees and accepts the evidence that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. The works of Jesus give powerful testimony that He is the Son of God. When questioned whether He was the Christ, Jesus directed John to what He was doing:  2  And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples 3  and said to Him, “are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?” 4  Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5  The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6  And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me” (Matt. 11:2-6). Even His enemies did not dispute His great miracles (Jno. 11:47). Secure your faith in Jesus as the Son of God by believing His works.
