Day 15 - John 3:31-36
Points to Ponder:
1.This whole chapter is about the kingdom of God and about faith. What do we have by faith? What is removed from us by faith?
2.What do we have and deserve by unbelief?
3.How is eternal life a present possession of ours?
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them. – John 3:36
Lord God, what I have in my grasp is life, eternal life. This cannot be taken from me because you earned it for me on the cross and gave it to me freely! You assure it to me in my baptism and in your Supper. It has been given to me by your Holy Spirit in full measure. I own this because you, O Spirit, have placed into the hands of my faith and it will not be taken from me. Grant me joy and confidence in this, dear Savior. You have won eternity and eternal life for me. You have removed the wrath of God from me. There is no condemnation for me or for any who believe in you. Give me joy in this truth today. Give me confidence and freedom to live for you today in this certain possession of eternity with you. Amen.
