Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father; that will be enough for us.” 9 Jesus replied, “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been with you all this time? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I have spoken to you I don’t speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Trust me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on account of the works themselves. 12 I assure you that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father. 13 I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father can be glorified in the Son. 14 When you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:8-14, CEB)
What do you need to see to believe?
Or what have you seen that you haven’t seen?
Jesus tells Philip that whoever has seen Jesus has seen the Father. Well, have they really?
Jesus is the Father, and the Father is Jesus, meaning they are both God, but seeing one, have you seen them both?
Yes. We have. Even when we can’t explain it.
We have seen Jesus and the Father and the Spirit. So what else do you need to believe the promises are true?
Trust and love as you are loved.
Loving People. Loving God.
