Who Needs God – The God Jesus Knew
Speaker: Grant Agler
The God Jesus knew
People did not follow Jesus
because they believed something.
They followed Jesus
because they saw something.
You become a Christian
you should never become a Christian
because of faith.
What Jesus said
can be trusted
If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
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
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.
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.
God is Father
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
God is humble
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
“Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
God is love
“A new command I give you: Love one another.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
What do I learn
about the Father
from the son?
