Scripture Reading: John 4:4-23
Scripture Quote: "Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” John 5:24 (NIV)
To Christians, it seems so obvious that Christ is the long awaited Messiah and that He died for forgiveness of sin in general, and for our individual salvation, in particular. Others may see through foggy vision that there is a God, but only because they marvel at and need to explain the intricacies and complex design of humanity and nature. Believers understand that God is so much more than a remote cause of all things. Our God is Spirit and He is Eternal. He is personally involved with every aspect of our lives.
God delights in those of us who have been made partakers of His Own Divine nature. He has made us His children and our hearts are full of love for Him and His truth. Our prayers and worship bring all our affections, flaws and desires to His throne. We are so privileged to have become joint heirs with Jesus. There are so many people in our personal sphere of influence who are still floundering for meaning in their lives. They live in darkness, only aware of the physical aspects of life, while we possess the knowledge of eternal life. Share what is in your heart with those who don’t yet understand.
Today’s meditation: Everyone needs to know who Jesus is!
Memory Verse: “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." John 4:24 (NIV)
