Thursday, April 3: All that John said about this man was true

 

He Set His FaceThe last days of Jesus' earthly life are filled with significant events and teachings. During these weeks leading up to Easter, we'll travel with Jesus toward Jerusalem and his crucifixion, marveling at his determination to finally fulfill his destiny as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Read John 10:40-42

Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, and many people came to him. They said, "Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true." And in that place many believed in Jesus.

 

Reflect

Earlier the people demanded a sign from Jesus, and he would not provide one. But now, though John the Baptist never provided them with an external sign, they look back on John's words about Jesus and accept them as true, in light of what they themselves had seen of Jesus. How often do you take time to reflect on what you've learned about Jesus over the last weeks, months, and years?

Respond

Set aside an extended time—whatever amount makes sense to you—sometime in the next week. Use that time to reflect on what you've learned about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in the recent past, through reading the Scriptures, through prayer, through teachers and books, through friends, and through your own life circumstances. Allow those various thoughts to coalesce in your heart and mind, and ask God to expand your relationship with him through this time of reflection.
