As we continue through John’s gospel this Sunday, we will be confronted about the danger of adopting a “weak” view of Jesus in John 5. Jesus has authority to give life to whom He will (v. 21), while also having the authority to execute judgment (v.22, 27). Therefore, honoring Jesus is a big deal to God the Father (v.23-24). Fellow believer, ponder today how you might honor the Son of God for giving you life, while praying for those you know who are currently headed towards judgment.
On Sunday we’ll remember the Lord’s death and resurrection together by partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Between now and then take some time to prepare your heart to receive God’s Word by reading John 5:19-29 and by examining yourself in light of the Lord’s instructions about communion in 1 Cor. 11:23-32.
See you soon,
