The Goals of Restoration #5

Pastor Dwain New Creation

You are not just saved for heaven.

You are not just saved from Hell.

You are not saved just to know about God or His Son, Jesus.

You are not saved just to attend a church or be religious.  It‘s so much bigger and greater than all of these things!

 

Goal 5:   To bear witness of the Father and the
Son. 

 

We should have this as our goal, that we could say to
people,  “if you’ve seen me, you’ve seen
the Son and if you’ve seen the Son, you’ve seen the Father.”

 

That’s not
preposterous

That’s not
absurd

That’s not
foolish

That’s
Bible

In that we bear the image of the Son, we therefore bear the
image of the Father.

 

John 14:8  Philip said^ to Him, “Lord, show us the
Father, and it is enough for us.”

9  Jesus said^ to him,
“Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me,
Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the
Father; how do you say, ‘Show us the Father
‘?  10
“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 initiative, but the
Father abiding in Me does His works.
11  “Believe Me that I am in
the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise believe on account of the works
themselves.  12  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who
believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than
these shall he do; because I go to the Father.
