Seeing God’s Work in the Home - John 10:32-38

"We were on his beautiful Riverside Forum and we were just having a blast! He's, his name's Paul Overstreet. What a great guy and he loves Christ Jesus. Sincerely. And he writes lot of his songs to draw families closer to God and what God's plan of living his son and serving each other."

Family Discussions:

  1. What did Jesus do that let people know that he indeed was God in the flesh?
  2. How can a son or daughter pay the highest compliment to a godly parent?
  3. Can you give examples of that?

Transcription:

 00:13 Hey, today I want to tell you about one of my favorite people in one of the funnest days that we ever had together. The scripture today is from John Chapter 10 verse 32 through 38 it says this, but Jesus said to them, I've shown you many great miracles from the father for which of these do you stone me? We're not stoning you for one of these replied the Jews, but for blasphemy because you being a mere man claim to be God. Jesus answered them. Is it not written in your law? I have said, you are gods. If he called them gods to whom the word of God came and the scripture cannot be broken. What about the one whom the father sit apart as his very own and sent into the world wide? Then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said I am God's son. Do not believe me unless I do what the father does, but even if I do it, even though you did not believe me, believe in the miracles that you may know and understand that the father is in me and I am in the father.

01:23 Probably was years ago, but uh, man, I had one of the most sheer fun days of my life. We were flying across that Tennessee pasture were red hot four wheeler and I was flying behind one of country music's greatest songwriters probably of all time. We were on his beautiful Riverside Forum and we were just having a blast, just like a couple of wild mustangs for sprinting, you know, through the mountains. He's, his name's Paul Overstreet. What a great guy and he loves Christ Jesus. Sincerely. And he writes lot of his songs to draw families closer to God and what God's plan of living his son and serving each other. He had a song years ago that I still love. It still comes to my mind and it says this, I'm seeing my father in me and that's how we both agree. I find myself more like him. Each day.

02:11 I notice I walked the way he walks. I'm seeing the way I talk, the way he talks. I'm starting to see my father in me. You know, people knew that Jesus was of God because all the fullness of deity dwell in him because he was a hundred percent consistent. In acting like God. He never wavered in producing a lifestyle that was godly. Even today, a daddy's a father's number one responsibility is to follow God with his lifestyle at home, at work in church. As the apostle Paul said, imitate me as I imitate Christ. You know, the older a son or daughter gets, the more you desire to imitate a godly dad. They were, there were some great philosopher who wants said, you know, imitation is the greatest compliment. You know, when I was a teenager, you know, I didn't imitate my dad enough.

03:06 What a man he was. But um, you know what? When I, when I got to college and especially when I became a dad, he became the smartest man on earth and he remains that in my life today. Here's the questions. What did Jesus do that let people know that he indeed was God in the flesh? And, and, and boy, I tell you this, when, um, the only thing more difficult than being a teenager's being the parent of one, nevertheless, how can a son or daughter pay the highest compliment to a godly parent? Can you give examples of that? And here's the thought for the day. You know, people can best see God when they see us doing the works of God is specially in the home.
