​My Daily Bread – JESUS. “Because I live, you also will live.” Finding Life. Only JESUS can give us new life. Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone. Dear LORD, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, and I need Your forgiveness. Thank You, JESUS, for dying for me and giving me eternal life. Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone. Blessed? Man…. Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of the LORD ; and in His law doth he meditate day and night. Got.Wholeness? Healthy.Spirit.Body.Mind. Now may the GOD of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it.

Finding Life. Only JESUS can give us new life.

JESUS. “Because I live, you also will live.” John 14:19

The words of Ravi’s father cut deep. “You’re a complete failure. You’re an embarrassment to the family.” Compared to his talented siblings, Ravi was viewed as a disgrace. He tried excelling in sports, and he did, but he still felt like a loser. He wondered, What is going to become of me? Am I a complete failure? Can I get out of life some way, painlessly? These thoughts haunted him, but he talked to no one. That simply wasn’t done in his culture. He had been taught to “keep your private heartache private; keep your collapsing world propped up.”

So Ravi struggled alone. Then while he was recovering in the hospital after a failed suicide attempt, a visitor brought him a Bible opened to John 14. His mother read these words of JESUS to Ravi: “Because I live, you also will live” (v. 19). This may be my only hope, he thought. A new way of living. Life as defined by the AUTHOR of life. So he prayed, “JESUS, if You are the one who gives life as it is meant to be, I want it.”

Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone.

Life can present despairing moments. But, like Ravi, we can find hope in JESUS who is “the way and the truth and the life” (v. 6). GOD longs to give us a rich and satisfying life.

Dear LORD, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, and I need Your forgiveness. Thank You, JESUS, for dying for me and giving me eternal life. Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone.

Only JESUS can give us new life.

INSIGHT:

On the eve of JESUS CHRIST’S death on the cross, His preoccupation was not with the imminent pain that awaited Him but on the welfare of His disciples. After promising He was going away to prepare a dwelling place for them, JESUS told His followers He would come again to gather them to Himself. The foundation for such claims was CHRIST’S declaration that He is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). He was able to comfort His disciples because of who and what He is. JESUS offers all who believe in Him the same hope of a new life.
