John 10: 25-26.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in My Father’s Name, they bear witness of Me.
But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep, as I said unto you.
When the Pharisees circled Jesus in a silly attempt to contain Him, they demanded that He tell them plainly if He were the Christ. They wanted Him to claim to be King of the Jews so they could take Him to Rome and accuse Him of treason.
He was ready for them. He didn’t hesitate or mince words. He said, “I have already told you. You refuse to believe Me, because you are not the sheep of My fold. All the works I do in My Father’s Name prove Who I am!” (my own paraphrase.”
He goes on to say some of my favorite words in all of scripture. I’m going to wait a couple of days to address that passage. We have family here again until early Tuesday morning. In the meantime, go ahead and read through to the end of Chapter 10. You will be blessed. There are precious promises to be enjoyed.
