Day 33 - John 6:30-40
Points to Ponder:
1. What did the crowds want from Jesus?
2. Was it true that Jesus hadn’t given them signs? Why or why not?
3. What was God’s deepest desire for each one of them?
This is the will of him who sent me: that I should lose none of those he has given me but should raise them up on the last day. – John 6:39
Lord Jesus, you have such personal love for me and for all people.You and your Father desire that you would lose NOT ONE of all those given to you.Your love is an infinite love extending to all the people in this world.AND your love is a personal love extending to me and to each person in this world as if I/they were the only people in this world. Sometimes, dear Jesus, I live in this world I feel like I’m unnoticed and overlooked, just a number in this world of billions and trillions.Sometimes I feel like I’m unimportant in this world.But Jesus I am not overlooked and unnoticed in your eyes; nor does my Father in heaven overlook me. To the world I am only one of many, but to you I am the only one.Lord Jesus, such personal and eternal love for you. Help me to love like you, personally, directly.Keep me from overlooking people in my daily life. Each person matters to you, therefore, each person matters to me.Help me to live that out today, dear Jesus.Amen.
