Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
Jesus, thank you for being the light to bring us through this time of darkness in the church and in the nation. Please help us take each step by your light. Thank you.
The Pharisees therefore said to him, “You bear witness of yourself; your witness is not true.” (John 8:13)
Holy Spirit, convince the leaders and teachers of your people today of the truth of Jesus’ witness.
Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of myself, my witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going. You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one. And yet if I do judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the father who sent me. It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. I am one who bears witness of myself, and the father who sent me bears witness of me.” (John 8:14-18 )
Father, help us to hear your witness about Jesus.
Then they said to him, “Where is your father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you had known me, you would have known my father also.” (John 8:19)
Jesus, thank you for making your father known to us.
A word received: I AM waiting for my people to return to me. I AM waiting for hearts that are warmed by the fire of my Holy Spirit. I AM waiting for my people to desire more of me. Come to me; I AM waiting for you.
