Those described in John 14:23 can’t help but witness for Jesus

5th December 2016 (15.47) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio

John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

People see you love the Lord Jesus Christ because He and His Father love you in return and they come and make their home with you. They don’t see that with Professing Christians as described by Him in John 14:24.

Your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ causes people problems. Everyone in your life has to cope with the fact that you are now a Child of God. A sinner saved through the Gospel of the Lord Jesus and used by Him to do spiritual things according to the will of God.

You are different to them!

They will not find it easy relating to you now you are living with the Lord Jesus and his Father and putting them first in your life. The Holy Spirit will be a BIG problem to them. Leaders within Churchianity will distance themselves from you – believe me – they will welcome you with open arms and big smiles. Then when they see who you are, they change.

The cost of being a disciple
Luke 14:25 Large crowds were travelling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 ‘If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters – yes, even their own life – such a person cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.’

You will be like salt and light where ever you go
Matthew 5:13 ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.’

14 ‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.’

You are given a solemn duty to perform
Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’

Mark 16:19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

This calling is difficult and cannot be performed unless you are as described in John 14:23 – you have to have spiritual power from God!

When I go among Christians, many of whom are unconverted Professing Christians, the ones who are open to the Spirit, even if they don’t realise it, are blessed. Any unconverted Christian Leaders – not true Christians in that they don’t follow Jesus as in John 14:24 – see this blessing from God. A blessing they can’t give and this makes them uncomfortable as their Church Members are witnessing something special that they do not normally see. This makes them feel uncomfortable and it raises their suppressed guilt that they hide in their religion.

It is painful to see!
