Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
When we belong to God, we hear clearly, with understanding, what is spoken to us from him through Christ. Can we hear him? If so, we love him. If we love him, we keep his commandments. Jesus says our orientation is seen and known by our belief or unbelief in him. Who is our father? Our thoughts, words and actions give proof to our origin. We can have two beginnings, one physical, over which we have no control, and one spiritual which allows us choice, to choose God and his son, Jesus, or not. Be pro-life; choose Christ. Let it be seen.
