Gospel of John 10:31-42 Reflection:
Jesus and the Jews continue to argue. The Jews want to stone him and he asks for which of his good works are they stoning him. They reply that it is not for the good that he does but because he claims to be the son of God.
Jesus then throws down a great challenge: if you do not believe in me at least believe in the works that I do.
We can apply the same principle to ourselves today. If we don’t believe that Jesus is God then look at the work of God in creation and in the world. We need to respond to what God says to us in our heart and be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
If we do this then we shall soon come to see that Jesus has to be God because everything from the Father and from creation and from the Holy Spirit points towards him. The Spirit shines on the world through Jesus; when we see the work of the Holy Spirit we also see Jesus.
This is why Jesus said to the Jews, if you don’t believe me believe the work that I do; if we start off and look at the work of God in the world and in our hearts we can only be led back to Jesus.
Salvation is designed that way!
