Daily Bible Reading: John 20
Verse of the Day: John 20:31 – “ but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name.”
John in each of the five books that he wrote in the Scriptures takes the time to disclose the purpose for them.
In 1st John he gives it in 5:13, “These things have I written unto you, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, even unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God.” In 2nd John it is found in verse 7, “For many deceivers are gone forth into the world, even they that confess not that Jesus Christ cometh in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.” And 3rd John has it in verse 11, “Beloved, imitate not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: he that doeth evil hath not seen God.” The Book of Revelation gives us his purpose in 1:19, “Write therefore the things which thou sawest, and the things which are, and the things which shall come to pass hereafter.”
Prayer: God show us Your Purpose for us.
