Day 27 - John 5:31-40
Points to Ponder:
1.In this section, Jesus identifies three witnesses who testify about who he is. Who are they? (Hint: They are not all people.)
2.Why didn’t the Jews in this crowd come to Jesus for life?
3.What is the warning for you in this section?
4.What witnesses has Jesus given us that we know 100% to be true?
You pore over the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, and yet they testify about me. – John 5:39
Lord Jesus, your Word is wise and good in so many ways. It gives me divine wisdom for my life here on this earth. It shows me the way that I am to be living my life. It gives me divine explanations for some of the things that go on in my life. It doesn’t explain everything, but it teaches me about some of the whys and wherefores of my life. Most importantly, it testifies about you, Lord Jesus and that through you and through faith in you, I will inherit life. Keep your Word from becoming a check-box in my life. It would be so easy to look at my devotional life and the reading of your Bible as something that I need to check off my list of things to do. It would be so easy to read your Word and just like for direction and understanding for my earthly life. It would be so easy to miss the main point of your Word – to testify about you, my Savior. Keep me from missing the point of the Bible and help me to make that point clear to all who ask me why I have the hope that I do. Amen.
