Work and Truth

Scripture: John 3:14-21

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

How we see God influences how we work. If we believe God is primarily concerned with judgment and condemnation, our work will be filled with fear and resentment. If we believe God is a God of love and desires no one to perish, our work will be filled with truth. Truth brings life. Truth brings transparency. Truth brings freedom. Truth brings faith. The opposite of faith is not doubt or unbelief but disobedience. Our response to the work of Crist is faith and obedience.

Night and Day

Jesus meets a community impoverished in truth. The blind man receives sight through the work of Jesus on the Sabbath. This contradicts the prevailing world view. The community seeks to set aside the truth in favor of their world view. Jesus challenges their perspective with healing and truth. The blind man is changed and witnesses to the power of God in Jesus.
