2013 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR
Today’s Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 18 / John 16
John 16:1 [NLT] “I have told you these things so that you won’t abandon your faith. An opening sentence like that catches your attention no matter how early in the morning you read it! And before you can refocus your eyes and read it again, your brain is all ready asking, “What things, what things have you told me?” We know Jesus is talking to the disciples, but we can’t help but personalize it!
In chapter 15 we learned to “remain in” Christ Jesus. In this chapter we learn to ask in Jesus’ name. Verse 24 “You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.”
REMAIN IN ME and ASK IN MY NAME – and you’ll never abandon your faith. I’m calling it JESUS FAITH! –
