Day 29 - John 5:1-47
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?
John 5:20 - For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he is doing; and he will show him greater works than these so that you will be amazed.
Lord God, help me to stand back in wonder and amazement at all your works. The Jews saw this amazing sign from Jesus. A man who had been lame for 38 years, he healed him. In an instant his ability and his strength were restored so that he could get up and walk. And the Jewish leaders were so caught up in what they thought was right that they totally missed what the miracle was showing about Jesus. They should have been amazed, but instead they were angry. They totally missed the point. Keep me from missing the point. Moreover, keep me from missing what you’re doing in my life. Help me to stand back in thanks, wonder and amazement at all the things that you’re doing in my life. It all seems so mundane and normal, but in the normal you are doing what you do. You are ruling the normal things in my life for my eternity and for my faith. From your seat at God’s right hand, O Jesus, you are ruling all the events in my life. You are putting people in my life so that they can impact me and shape me for you. You are putting me in people’s life so that I can shape them too, especially by your Word. How great are your works, Jesus! How great is your goodness, Father! How great is your faith working, Spirit! How great are you God! Amen.
