“God will also glorify”

March 31, 2016

Jesus said, “If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately.” (John 13:32).  Jesus lived to glorify God (:31), and God glorified Him (Acts 3:13). When you live like Jesus, to glorify God, then know that God will also glorify you.  “…we may also be glorified […]

“God is glorified”

March 30, 2016

Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him; …I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.” (John 13:31; 17:4). Can you say that “God is glorified” in you by how you are living on the earth?  Jesus said that […]

“by Me in My trials”

March 29, 2016

Jesus said to His disciples, “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;” (Luke 22:28).  While they all were about to face their toughest trials yet, up to this point the disciples had stayed with Jesus through His. Would you have done the same?  Would you have stood by Jesus in His […]

“until it is fulfilled”

March 28, 2016

Jesus said of the Passover, “for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” (Luke 22:16). The Passover represented God’s deliverance of Israel.  Jesus was going to fulfill it by delivering all people.  In doing so He became our Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7).  Now […]

“I have earnestly desired”

March 25, 2016

When He reclined at the table with the apostles Jesus said, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;” (Luke 22:15). Among the many emotions that filled Jesus leading up to the cross, He “earnestly desired” to eat the Passover with the apostles.  He had been intensely longing for this […]

“by this all men will know”

March 24, 2016

Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35). If you wanted to let the world know you are a disciple of Jesus (You do, don’t you?), how would you go about it?  Maybe by wearing a t-shirt that had the message […]

“a new commandment”

March 23, 2016

Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” (John 13:34). What was new about the commandment to love one another?  God had always required this of His people (Leviticus 19:18, 34, etc.).  What was new was Jesus.  […]

“one of you will betray Me”

March 22, 2016

Jesus “became troubled in spirit, and testified and said, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me.’” (John 13:21). Of all the things Jesus knew would happen (:19), this had to be among the things that troubled Him most.  He loved His disciples (:1), and to know that one would […]

“before it happens”

March 21, 2016

Jesus said, “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.” (John 13:19).  To be sure they didn’t miss it, He emphasized this point multiple times (14:29; 16:4). A lot of people have filled out their brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament.  All […]

“you are blessed if you do them”

March 18, 2016

After teaching about humble service Jesus said, “If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.” (John 13:17). In this verse Jesus emphasized two things to be blessed: knowing and doing.  First, we must know the right things.  This is why we must spend time in God’s word.  Second, we must do […]
