THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 8 - Verse 47

Verse 47. He that is of God. He that loves, fears, and honours God.

Heareth God's words. Listens to, or attends to the doctrines or commandments of God, as a child who loves his parent will regard and obey his commandments. This is an evidence of true piety. A willingness to receive all that God teaches us, and to obey all his commandments, is an undoubted proof that we are his friends, Joh 14:21; 1 Jo 2:4; 3:24.

As the Jews did not show a readiness to obey the commands of God, it proved that they were not of him, and to this was owing their rejection of the Lord Jesus.
