Scripture(s):Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

John 6:40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

Devotional:  Don’t you just love the Father’s heart in this passage from John?  It is His absolute will that all will look to the provision of His Son Jesus Christ and receive eternal life, being raised at the last day. 

As Jesus’ follower, you are part of God’s plan for redeeming the world.  Just as in the first century when the Church was being established, many are being deceived by false prophets and false beliefs.  Your calling is to carry out the Father’s will by upholding the truth of Scripture and sharing the Good News of salvation through Christ alone. Sometimes that seems like an impossible task.  But you’re not alone in the task.  God has given you His Holy Spirit to guide you as you are obedient to His calling. John 16:13 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth. 

Reflect:

  • Read John 16:13. Listen carefully for the Spirit to lead and guide you today and throughout this week. And be bold in sharing a witness of what Christ has done for you. 

Is God Fake News? Day 37

Scripture: John 14:6. Jesus answered,” I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Devotional: Have you ever asked yourself the question, “If all roads lead to God, then why did Jesus have to die”?  As a follower of Jesus Christ, in order to be effective as His disciple, you must be able to answer this question. 

The simple answer is, all roads don’t lead to God, and that’s why Jesus did what He did on our behalf.  He is the ONLY perfect, unblemished Lamb of God that can provide eternal life for all who put their faith and trust in Him. 

This verse is an important verse for all Jesus followers to memorize.  It reminds us time and again that Jesus is the only way.  And being able to share that with others is imperative, especially as so many are being deceived. 

Reflect:

  • You may be the only person speaking truth into the life of someone who God brings into your path. How will you lovingly share it?
