Today's Bible reading: John 20: 30-31
Toward the end of John’s Gospel, he writes: “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” People commonly and mistakenly believe that the biblical books were written mainly to provide rules for godly living. However, speaking through John - and Matthew, and Mark, and Luke … and actually through the entirety of Holy Scripture, both Old Testament and New - God announces the Good News that Jesus is His Son and that by faith in His name, we have life and salvation. That blessed announcement is the core message of the entire Scripture.
Prayer: Let me gladly share this Good News, O God, that others may believe and live. Amen.
