Possessing eternal life!
Scripture reading for April 9th: John 3, Psalm 71, Proverbs 9
Key Scriptures: John 3:33-36 “Whoever receives His testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For He whom God has sent utters the words of God for He gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
John the Baptist was a witness sent by God testifying that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and Lamb of God that would take away the sins of the world. John the Apostle used to be a disciple of John the Baptist but left him to follow Jesus. In writing this Gospel account, John affirms that whoever receives John the Baptist’s testimony affirms that God is true. Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father to make the gift of the Holy Spirit possible. We must actively believe in Jesus and obey Him or the wrath of God will remain on us.
Faith Confession: Lord Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God and my Savior through Your sacrifice on the cross. I actively trust in You and seek to obey. Eternal life is my exciting future!
Proverbs 9:10-11 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. For by Me your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life.”
