YE ARE MY WITNESSES

LESSON 2:

 

JESUS GIVES US UNDERSTANDING - THAT THERE IS WORK TO DO

 

1.     FATHER

 

        John 5:17   "My Father worketh hitherto, AND I WORK."

 

Comment: AND I WORK - The Father's work was finished, and now Jesus was working to bring about the GREATEST AND MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN HISTORY, THE SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF, to redeem mankind from Satan's grip.  We are His workmanship, created in CHRIST JESUS to carry this message to the world through the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and POWER!

 

2.     JESUS FINISHED HIS WORK

 

        John 17:4   "I have glorified the FATHER on the earth."  "I HAVE FINISHED THE WORK WHICH THOU GAVEST ME TO DO."

 

3.     TO US TODAY

 

        Matthew 4:19         "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men." 

        The first words they heard when they met Jesus on the shores of Galilee.

 

 

NOW WE MUST FINISH OUR WORK WITH HIM

 

        2 Corinthians 6:1-2            Verse 1 "We then as workers together with HIM, beseech you also that ye receive NOT THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN."

            (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

 

 

REMEMBER:

 

        2 Corinth 5:19        "THAT GOD WAS IN CHRIST, reconciling the WORLD UNTO HIMSELF, and has COMMITTED UNTO US, THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION."  Now, we know our calling.
