The Works Prove the Words (John 10:31-42)

Podcast Art JohnOn Sunday, October 25, 2015, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “The Works Prove the Words” from John 10:31-42.

Jesus’ works were perfectly consistent with his words which authenticate that he is the Son of God in whom you may place your trust.

1. The God Who Made Himself Man—If Jesus were not God, then he would have deserved the condemnation of the Jewish authorities. They thought he was only a man who made himself God, when he truly was God who had humbly condescended to make himself a man.

2. Works Authentication—The miraculous signs Jesus performs are evidence of his deity and Sonship to God the Father. While evidences cannot work faith in people, they do render them without excuse for disbelief.

3. Words of Truth—John’s words are God’s means to bring people to faith in Christ. The signs are in service to the word. Be alarmed when other things become central to corporate worship over the word of God.
