John 5:35-36 (NIV) John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
“I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.
The work that Jesus is speaking of that we have been introduced to in the book of John is: healing a man, changing water to wine, and giving God the glory. He is making a point that still stands true today, we are so hung up on what people think of us. We will marvel over a preacher that stands up and tells us what God says, but we won’t actually listen to God, after that sermon we are like preacher (fill in your preachers name) really got me fired up today. But, was it really the preacher that fired you up or was it the Holy Spirit in your heart letting you know God knows you need this? Man should not put us more in aww that God himself. An athlete like LeBron James is an idol to some, they pay tons of money so, they can attend a game and watch his ability. Maybe what we should be doing is looking at ourselves and seeing what abilities God gave us to use to glorify him, now imagine if we took that money we used to see LeBron James and used it to support God’s plan for our lives! Then we would be happy and fulfilled instead of leaving the game, looking at our bank account and saying wow that was a great 3 hours, but now what.
