Day 43 - John 7:1-53
Points to Ponder:
1.As you read the whole chapter as a unit today, highlight some of the very important verses in this section.
2.Why did you pick those verses? Why are they verses you want to give greater attention to?
And there was a lot of murmuring about him among the crowds. Some were saying, “He’s a good man.” Others were saying, “No, on the contrary, he’s deceiving the people.” – John 7:12
Lord Jesus, there was such a buzz about you wherever you went and whatever you did. Some people loved and believed in you. Other people hated you and wanted you dead. I can expect that people will respond to the message about you in the same way. Some people will receive it with joy and with faith. Others will kick back against the message and fight against it. Lord God, as I go with your message, help me to be bold and confident no matter how people receive it. Help me to find joy and contentment simply to do the work you’ve given me to do. Help me find joy and contentment simply to go and tell the Word that you’ve given me. It is your Word. You are the source of all true and right teaching. When people receive and hear me, they are hearing and receiving you. When people hate and reject me, they are rejecting you. Make me bold. Make me content simply to tell your story no matter how it is received. Amen.
