THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I heard about a man who fired his secretary. An associate asked, "Why?"
The man said, "She couldn't spell. Kept asking me to spell the words."
The associate said, "So you couldn't stand all the interruptions?"
The man said, "No. I just got tired of looking up all the words."

John 1:35-41
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
KJV

Sometimes we need to look up the words!

The words in the above quoted passage of Scripture lead us to a wonderful revelation if we'll LISTEN and ask ourselves four questions.

First, What's the greatest thing that ever happened to you?
Now, I'm sure you can think of some wonderful things that have happened in your life. But what is the GREATEST thing that ever happened. Andrew would tell us that the greatest thing that ever happened to him was receiving Jesus as Lord. Would you not say the same?

Second, What's the greatest thing someone other than Christ ever did for you?
Now, I'm sure you can think of some wonderful things that people have done for you out of love. But what is the GREATEST thing someone ever did for you? Peter would say it was Andrew telling him about Jesus. Would you agree that the most wonderful thing someone did for you was tell you about Jesus?

Third, What's the greatest thing you can ever do for someone else?
Now, if you've been following along pretty close, you're already way ahead of me. You see, there are many wonderful things you can do for someone else. But the GREATEST thing you can do is to tell someone about Jesus!

So, here's the fourth question:
Will you make sharing THE GREATEST THING with someone else a priority in your life?

Here in our text, we find that Andrew went and told Peter about Jesus.
Then, in John 1:45, we find that Philip found Nathaniel and told him about Jesus.

Sharing THE GREATEST THING in your life. It oughta be EASY! After all, it's the most positive and absolutely wonderful thing that ever happened! You received Jesus, and with Him, you received eternal salvation! Your name is written down in His book above, sealed and secured for eternal glory!

SHARE THE GREATEST THING!

That's how the GOOD NEWS spreads!

Love ya,
