Chuck Smith :: Sermon Notes for John 14:20

toggle collapse
I. "IN THAT DAY YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM IN THE FATHER, AND YOU ARE IN ME, AND I AM IN YOU."
A. In what day? In the day that the Comforter comes to teach them all things.
1. One of the great truths that the Holy Spirit emphasizes to the believer is the fact of the indwelling power of Jesus Christ in us.
2. In verse 23, Jesus said that if anyone loved Him and kept His words that His Father and He would come and make their abode with Him.
3. In chapter 15:5,6,7 Jesus emphasizes the necessity of abiding in Him.
4. In chapter 17:21-23.
5. Paul to the Ephesians declares that Christ might settle down and make Himself at home in your hearts.
6. Paul declares that the great mystery that is taught to the Gentiles is "Christ in you, the hope of glory."
B. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ, our bodies become the temples of the Holy Spirit.
1. The Father, Son and the Spirit dwell in me.
2. No wonder Paul declared, "If God be for us, who can be against us?"
3. What an awesome thought, the God who created the universe has chosen to dwell in mortal man.
4. This does not in any wise make me God.
II. OUR LOVE PROVED BY OUR OBEDIENCE. "HE THAT HATH MY COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPETH THEM, HE IT IS THAT LOVETH ME."
A. It is not just having the commandments, this is the mistake that the Jews made concerning the law, they felt because God had given them the law, that they were justified. Paul said that not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
B. James tells us that we are to be doers of the word, and not hearers only deceiving ourselves.
C. Moses called Israel to hear the statutes and the judgments that he declared to them that they might learn them and keep and do them.
D. Jesus said, "Not every one that saith unto Me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of the Father."
E. Obedience is the proof of love.
F. Those that love Him will be loved of the Father, and He said that He would love them and would manifest Himself to them.
G. At this point Judas asked Him a question, remember this is a discussion between Jesus and the disciples.
1. This Judas is not Judas Iscariot, for he has already left the room and is at this very moment making his deal with the priests to betray Jesus unto them.
2. He was also known as Thaddaeus, and was the brother of James, the son of Alphaeus.
H. Judas wondered why Jesus was going to manifest Himself to them, and not to the world.
1. In verse 19 He told them that the world would see Him no more, but that they would see Him.
2. Now he is declaring that He is going to manifest Himself to those who proved their love for Him by keeping His commandments.
I. This question was answered by repeating what He had already been saying to them.
1. "If a man love Me, he will keep My words, and My Father will love him, and we will come and make our abode with him."
2. Love is the only environment in which Jesus will stay.
a. To the church of Ephesus he declared that they had left their first love, and that they must return to that first love or He would remove the candlestick out of its place.
3. Here Jesus changed the word manifest to abode. Not only will the Lord manifest Himself to those who love Him, but He will make His abode with them.
a. Paul wrote the Ephesians, "That Christ might settle down and make His abode in your hearts."
b. Paul prayed for the Ephesians that Christ might dwell in their hearts through faith, that they might be rooted and grounded in love.
III. CONVERSELY, "HE THAT LOVETH HIM NOT, KEEPETH NOT HIS SAYINGS."
A. Again obedience is the proof of love.
1. There are many today who are not keeping the words of Jesus.
2. Jesus declared again that the words were not His but the Father's which sent Him.
a. Once more he claims that His words are those of the Father.
b. In 7:16, He said that the doctrine was not His but Him that sent Me.
c. In 8:26, he said that He spoke the words that He heard of Him.
d. In 12:49, He said that he had not spoken of Himself, but that the Father had commanded Him what He was to say and speak.
3. Again Jesus declares that He was sent by the Father. Thirteen times He asserts this in the gospel of John.
