Golden Verse 金句

You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
                     John 5:39-40

你 們 查 考 聖 經  , 因 你 們 以 為 內 中 有 永 生 ; 給 我 作 見 證 的 就 是 這 經 。

然 而 , 你 們 不 肯 到 我 這 裡 來 得 生 命 。
                                                                 約翰福音 5:39-40

Today's Reading: John 5:31-47

     What I got from Jesus is: You refuse to come to me to have life!
     What I got from Jesus today is a reminder for all of us why we need to read the Bible.  Reading the Bible is not for us to get what we want, like to make sure we read one chapter a day means we will get a kind of insurance plan to go to heaven. It is not even for diligent study thinking that the more we know the Bible the more we will know God.

     According to what Jesus says, the Bible is to testify about Jesus and for us not to refuse coming to Jesus but to accept and believe that Jesus is Lord and that we can have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)

    This passage is to remind Jesus disciples of what happened in the beginning in this chapter. The one who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years was being healed right away when he listened to Jesus command. To rise up and to pick up his mat and walked away.

    You may be a Bible study group leader, a scholar or a pastor that you know the Bible so well. But, if you do not be willing to come to Jesus each day to have an intimate personal relationship with him, it's useless because Jesus is just someone you study but not someone you can walk with, trust to and love with all you have got. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be willing to come to you, accept and believe that you are our Lord and King so that we can have life, and have it to the full.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
