This passage contains one of Jesus’ grand promises – verse 24. Jesus taught resurrection. He also taught (v.21) that He had the power to give the gift of life to whomever He wants. Come to Him in confidence, trusting the three-fold witness of John the Baptist, Moses and the work the Father sent Jesus to do!
* Holy God, please wash us clean today and feed us with the bread of life, Christ Jesus.
“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.”
Scripture bears witness to Jesus.
Jesus is God’s word become flesh.
And it is ONLY through Jesus that we can find life.
He is the _only_ way. There is no other.
This is a word for any who would seek to find meaning elsewhere, perhaps people who reject the new testament, perhaps those who believe human-written words, those who try and find meaning in all the other places we seek out and look for.
There is only Jesus.
Let us turn to Him.
* Dear God,
Thank You Father, that You save us by Your grace.
Thank You Son, that You save us by Your blood, death, righteousness and life.
Thank You Spirit, that You save us by Your illumination, renovation and preservation.
Thank You Lord!
