Daily Bible Reading: John 12:1 – 19
Verse of the Day: John 12:19 – “The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Behold how ye prevail nothing; lo, the world is gone after him.”
As we witness the evil design growing in the readings of today, we see Jesus anointed in Bethany, and we read of the chief priests plotting to put Lazarus to death. They could not accept that Jesus could do what He did. They wanted to rid the world of the evidence of the power of the Son of God. They saw the people placing their faith in Jesus, and they could not be a part of it. Then, the unthinkable, Jesus comes into Jerusalem in a triumphal parade.
The hatred begins to grow. The popularity of Jesus is expanding and these religious leaders could not accept who He was. They saw the world turning to Him. And we move into the final week before His crucifixion.
Prayer; Father open my eyes to how You are working today. May I seek to join with You, even when it seems opposite to what I have held dear in my life. Amen
