What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
33 They answered Him, q“We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, rwhoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And sa slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 tTherefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but uyou seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 vI speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have 5seen with your father.”
39 They answered and said to Him, w“Abraham is our father.”
Jesus said to them, x“If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40 yBut now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth zwhich I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. 41 You do the deeds of your father.”
Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; awe have one Father—God.”
42 Jesus said to them, b“If God were your Father, you would love Me, for cI proceeded forth and came from God; dnor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 eWhy do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 fYou are of your father the devil, and the gdesires of your father you want to hdo. He was a murderer from the beginning, and idoes 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. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 jHe who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and khave a demon?”
49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and lyou dishonor Me. 50 And mI do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges. 51 Most assuredly, I say to you, nif anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”
52 Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You ohave a demon! pAbraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.’ 53 Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. qWho do You make Yourself out to be?”
54 Jesus answered, r“If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. sIt is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is 6your God. 55 Yet tyou have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and ukeep His word. 56 Your father Abraham vrejoiced to see My day, wand he saw it and was glad.”
