Daring Faith - Part 2 (John 14:8-14)



Daring Faith - Part 2
John 14:8-14

8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

trust

9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 

Jesus fully reveals the Father

10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 

absorption vs. emulation (relationship)

11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 

sent out + preserved = faithful 

13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 

14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
