Scripture reading for April 16th: John 8, Psalm 76, Proverbs 14
Key Scriptures: John 8:23-25 “He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am He you will die in your sins.” So they said to Him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning.”
Jesus had declared to the Pharisees that He was the “Light of the world.” They struggled to believe in Him because they were living in the darkness of sin–the sin of unbelief! Jesus plainly told them that they would die in their sins unless they believed in Him as Messiah. It is faith in Jesus that alone brings deliverance from death.
Faith Confession: Jesus, I humbly confess that You are the Son of God, the Light of the world. and the only One who can save me from eternal separation from You.
Psalm 76:8-9 “From the heavens You uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still, when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth.”
