Monday – Gospels

Reading – John 18

Highlight Verse:

“Pilate said, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.””
‭‭John‬ ‭18‬:‭37‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Did you notice that Jesus makes a purpose statement here?

Granted, He doesn’t state his entire purpose. To do that could jeopardize the purpose we usually focus on – that of being the sacrifice that cleanses all who believe from our sin.

What He does state so eloquently in one sentence is also a very important purpose. The truth that he testified would turn the world’s theology upside down.

He taught us how to love God and love others. In doing so, He expounded through parables how that happens.

We would do very well as we read the Gospels, to keep an eye out for Jesus’ instructions and put them into practice.

What was the last thing you remember learning from Jesus through reading the Gospels?
