John 5:31-36 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. (32) There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. (33) Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. (34) But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. (35) He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. (36) But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
Jesus said, “If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.” In verse 36, Jesus said, “…the same works I do, bear witness of me…” Can Jesus lie? No, of course Jesus cannot sin. Jesus cannot lie. In fact, Jesus cannot sin at all. So, if Jesus is saying He is God, is He really God?
We can stand and tell everyone around us how we know we are a Christian. However, no matter what we say, what we do will show the people around us what we really are. What do your actions tell people about you?
