Scripture reading for November 23rd: Ezekiel 31-33, 1st John 5
Key Scriptures: 1st John 5:11-13 “And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.”
John plainly states that God’s grace has given us eternal life through His Son. God wants no one to perish but all to have this gift. He wants no one to be uncertain about His promise of eternal life and the One who gives access, Jesus Christ. No one should live in fear or uncertainty, these truths were written that we might know for certain this truth.
Ezekiel 33:11 “Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for leading me to turn back from my sinful ways and for the assurance of eternal life through Your Son, Jesus Christ, my Lord! Amen!
