Receiving eternal life by faith!

Scripture reading for April 11th:  John 5, Psalm 73, Proverbs 11

Key Scriptures: John 5:24-27 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life.  He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.  Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.  For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the son also to have life in Himself.  And He has given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.”

Jesus gave simple instructions to His disciples.  If they would listen and hear His word, mixing it with a choice to believe and trust it, they would have eternal life.  Jesus stated that the Father had life in Himself, He was the source of all life and the Father had given that life to His Son.  The Son of Man also had the authority to execute judgment on those who refused to listen to Him or His Father.

Faith Confession:  Lord Jesus, I recognize You and the Father as the source of life and righteousness and I believe and receive You and Your word.  I look forward to hearing Your voice at the rapture or the resurrection of life!

Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise.”

Taking up Christ’s Yoke

Scripture reading for January 15th:  Matthew 11, Psalm 11, Prov. 11

Key Scriptures:  Matthew 11:27-30 “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.  Come to Me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”

Jesus revealed His great authority, given to Him by His Father.  He had known the Father and the Father knew His Son.  Jesus was able to reveal the Father to whoever He chose.  He then called all mankind to come to Him to receive the revelation of the Father’s love and His great authority.  All were invited to take the yoke of a disciple and learn from Jesus.  His way was gentle and brought people to find rest from the loads of life.  All anyone had to do was come to Jesus to learn His way.

Faith’s Confession:  Jesus, I come to You humbly, to learn more of My Father.  I find rest in Your yoke of discipleship and trust you for fruitfulness in winning souls.

Proverbs 11:30  “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise.”
