Today's Verse: John 9:3 (KJV)

Thursday, September 3, 2020

Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
— John 9:3 (KJV)

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.
