This weeks’ Reading Challenge
(5/30/12 – 6/6/12)
In verse 34 Jesus says “My food is to do what the one who sent Me wants and to bring His work to completion.” (JNTP) So often we get bogged down with the here and now. Our current situation, the way things look, the way things are. Jesus wasn’t saying He wasn’t physically hungry but rather that at that moment He saw steps to the completion of His Father’s work and it gave Him the strength to keep going.
We need to keep in mind the goal. The goal is revealed in John 6:40 (we’ll get to it in more detail in a few weeks) which says that the Father’s will is “that everyone who looks on the son and believes in Him should have eternal life..” This goal os seeing people won to the Lord, seeing Lives completely changed by the power of Jesus Christ should be the main thing that keeps us going and keeps us strong in our walk with God.
What was it like for you when you first became a Christian?
What do you think it would be like to lead someone in a prayer for salvation?
How would you tell people about Jesus?
