Thursday

Read John 10:22-30

22 It was winter, and the Festival of the Dedication of the Temple was being celebrated in Jerusalem. 23Jesus was walking in Solomon’s Porch in the Temple, 24when the people gathered round him and asked, “How long are you going to keep us in suspense? Tell us the plain truth: are you the Messiah?”
25 Jesus answered, “I have already told you, but you would not believe me. The things I do by my Father’s authority speak on my behalf; 26but you will not believe, for you are not my sheep. 27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from me. 29What my Father has given me is greatery than everything, and no one can snatch them away from the Father’s care. 30The Father and I are one.”

Think

What Jesus promises here is predicted in Psalm 23 and fulfilled in Revelation 7.  What Jesus has taught; the way in which Jesus has represented the heart of God to the world is true.  Jesus final claim, vs 30: "The Father and I are one."  Is a bold claim - so controversial that people want to stone him for blasphemy.

Pray

Help me every day to believe and accept the truth that you Jesus reveal your Father's heart to the world.
