THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 8 - Verse 29

Verse 29. Is with me. In working miracles, &c.

Hath not left me alone. Though men had forsaken and rejected him, yet God attended him.

Those things that please him. See Mt 3:17: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased," Php 2:8; Isa 53:10-12; 2 Pe 1:17; Lu 3:22; Mt 17:5.

His undertaking the work of redemption was pleasing to God, and he had the consciousness that in executing it he did those things which God approved. It is a small matter to have men opposed to us, if we have a conscience void of offence, and evidence that we please God. Comp. Heb 11:5 "Enoch —before his translation had this testimony that he pleased God." See also 1 Co 4:3.
