Not that I accept human testimony…
How and what we perform is driven by whom we have in the audience of our minds, holding our scorecard. Jesus knew the Father so well that He played for an audience of One. Contrast the dialogue we have in our minds with the statements of Jesus:
I’ve done pretty well... “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid.”
Even if I say so myself… “There is another who testifies in my favor.”
It is public knowledge that he is on the XYZ Most Successful list… “Not that I accept human testimony…”
My portfolio speaks for me… “For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.”
Our speaker tonight is a famous businessperson / athlete / movie star / whatever who just found Jesus last month… “I do not accept praise from men…”
We believe God…...
