So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” John 21:15 Despite our intentions to please the Lord, we all fail to one degree or another. But if we truly repent of our sin, God graciously allows us to keep serving Him—even […]

That You May Believe

August 19, 2019

And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:30-31 John wrote his gospel to convince […]

It Is Finished!

August 12, 2019

After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, […]

Face to Face with the Truth

August 5, 2019

Jesus answered, “… Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him, “What is truth? John 18:37–38 The truth exposes things. Because of this, not everyone likes it.

In the World but Not of It

July 29, 2019

I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the […]

I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and […]

Preparation for Service

July 8, 2019

If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be […]

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

July 1, 2019

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. John 14:1 We see many troubling things in the world today. Perhaps you see them in your own home, among your family members, or in your own life. Jesus has a remedy for our troubled hearts. Jesus was now hours away […]

A New Commandment

June 24, 2019

Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately. Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am […]
