Don't Let Your Hearts be Troubled!
Sunday, January 29
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Who do you say that Jesus is?
Throughout these 40 days of prayer, our challenge is to figure out who you say Jesus is to you. Throughout the next seven days we will dig deeper into the above statement that Jesus made, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
In an effort to refrain from taking this statement out of context, here is what was said by Jesus and Thomas before Jesus made this statement.
John 14:1-6 - “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Prayer for the Day: Dear Lord, please send Your Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and understanding so we may grow deeper in love with You. Help us to let go of our preconceived ideas of who You are and embrace You as the true Savior of us all. We pray in Jesus name – Amen.
Personal Prayer: “Lord Jesus, You ask – “Who do you say that I am?” Lord, open my mind so I can understand who You are, and who I am in You.”
