Daily Bible Reading: John 11:47 – 57
Verse of the Day: John 11:50 – “nor do ye take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.”
Caiaphas was the High Priest of that year makes a statement to the gathered group of Pharisees and chief priests. In his opinion, it would be better that Jesus die than take the chance of plunging the nation into destruction because of insurrection. John in our passages today tells us that by the virtue of Caiaphas’ office that he was unconsciously proclaiming a message from God.
Caiaphas was a prophet unknown to himself or those around them. God often uses people when they least expect it. Sometimes God will use us even when we are unaware of Him doing it. Today, watch and see if God uses you unexpectedly. Pray that He will.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I seek You to use me even when I am unaware of it today. You are able to make everything that I do count for the Kingdom. Make it so today, dear Lord. I pray this in Your Son’s Name, Amen.
