Key Thought

Want to know what God says? Listen to Jesus! Want to know how God treats people? Watch what Jesus does! Want to know what God looks like? Look at Jesus! Jesus claims to speak, act, and reveal God throughout the Gospel of John. So the real choice for us is whether or not we are going to trust him with our lives?

Today's Prayer

Holy and almighty God, please forgive my little faith. Please bless me as I continue to seek to know you better by reading and meeting your Son Jesus in the Gospel of John. I ask that you make yourself known to me as I seek to live for you each day. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
