As you begin this week, we ask that you think about the following scriptures and how they apply to your life and your growing relationship with the Lord.
“You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal like. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life”. (John 5:39-49)
” All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:37-40)
” No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: ‘ They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:44-51)
