Worship (John 14:8-17)
1 - On that eventful night when Jesus was arrested, the next
day to be crucified, Philip said to him,
2 - "Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied."
1 - Jesus said to him,
2 - "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and
you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? Do you not believe that I
am in the Father and the Father is in me?
1 - "The words that I say to you I do not speak on my
own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me
that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do
not, then believe me because of the works themselves.
2 - "Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me
will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater
works than these, because I am going to the Father.
1 - "I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the
Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for
anything, I will do it.
2 - "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to
be with you forever.
1 - "This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot
receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him,
because he abides with you, and he will be in you."
2 - (pause) "he abides with you, and he will be in you."
Thatís what Jesus said.
1 - Brothers and sisters, letís open our hearts and lives and
allow him to dwell in us.
2 - Even right now. Please stand if you are able, and sing
"Holy Spirit, Truth divine," #508.
