Today's Verse: John 9:3

Thursday, September 3, 2020

"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life."
— John 9:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Let's ask God to help us view people through the eyes of Jesus so that we will see them as people in whom the work of God needs to be done. And just what is this work of God? Well, Jesus answered that question this way: To believe in the One he has sent! (John 6:28-29)

My Prayer...

Father, please help me see the people around me as Jesus does. I want to see your work done in their lives, so please give me patience with those who are rude, tenderness with those who are hurting, and boldness with those who are ready to hear the Good News of Jesus. In the name of Christ Jesus I pray. Amen.
