How Important is Belief?
Session 8.20 Starter
Today we are looking again at part of Jesus’ “final discourse” with his disciples in that upper room before he was crucified. What is Jesus trying to say about how the way our beliefs and actions reveal God?
Scripture: John 14:8-17
Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “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? 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.
