Scripture reading for April 12th: John 6, Psalm 74, Proverbs 12
Key Scriptures: John 6:35-40 “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will but the will of Him who sent me. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I should lose nothing of all that He has given Me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in Him should have eternal life and I will raise him up on the last day.”
The Father’s will was a key thought in Jesus’ life. Jesus came to earth do do the Father’s will, not His own. Those who choose to believe in Jesus come to Him and will be eternally cared for, never to be lost, hungry, or thirsty again. They come because the Father decreed that anyone who looks on His Son and believes would have eternal life and resurrection to life!
Faith Confession: Jesus, thank You for the Father’s will! I joyfully look on You and believe, receiving eternal life, satisfaction of my hunger and thirst, and security!
Psalm 74:12 “Yet God my King is from of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.”
