It's Day 6 and we're in John 1.
You are not reading the Bible to gain trivia knowledge. You're reading the Bible for life change. Father, change our hearts to look more like Your's.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 39 - "Come and you will see" - That's a pretty good summary of what Jesus calls us to. Come and walk with me and I'll show you what you need to know as we walk along.
- Verse 1 - "the Word" - The Word is Jesus. That's just another name/title for Him.
- Verse 15 - What's John's statement mean? To paraphrase it: Jesus came after me, in that my ministry started before His, but He was before me, in that He is preexistent because He's God.
- Verse 16 - "grace in place of grace" - This seems to refer to the fact that even before the fuller grace that we've received through Jesus, we received grace in God withholding His judgment because we were stick under the Law. See verse 17.

- "One might be surprised how often Abe Lincoln gets credit for this last verse in this chapter. This brings to mind the countless number of people who claim that God helps those who help themselves is scriptural when it was Ben Franklyn who coined that phrase."
