ĎThe works I do in my Fatherís name are my witness.í
In other words, just watch what I do, how I live - that will reveal who I am. Jesusí whole being was so clearly attuned to his love for the Father and all the Fatherís children that he could make such a statement.
Scary stuff! If I think of inviting people to look at my life and decide from that observation who I am, I realise how often fear, hurt or jealousy distort my words and actions. Jesus, my desires so rarely show forth in what I do. Draw me closer to yourself. Heal the hurts and take away the fears that distort my attempts to love. Comfort me with the assurance that you know the desires of my heart.
