Today’s reading is John 5-6.

Do you read the Bible? I know you do, that is why you are on this blog. What are you hoping to find there? Rules for living? Keys to success? Directions to the reward? Jesus says many search the Scriptures because they believe in them they can find life, but they are missing the point. The Scriptures give us Jesus. Certainly, some of those other things can be ascertained from Scripture, but we will miss even those things if we do not put Jesus at the beginning of our Scripture searching. Every time you open its pages, no matter where you read, search for Jesus.

Tomorrow’s reading is John 7-8.

A Word for Our Kids

Hey kids, if you are like me, Jesus’s interaction with the crowds on the day after He fed them is really weird. All that talk about eating flesh and drinking blood can seem kind of gross. Obviously, many listening to Him thought so too. They left. But for all the confusion this chapter may cause us, please notice one beautifully clear point. When Jesus asked if the 12 wanted to leave Him also, Peter responded, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” Certainly, sometimes Jesus’s words confuse us and take some real study to figure out. But they are words of life. Always hang on to Jesus and always hang on His every word.
