Pray: Heavenly Father, let me see this verse with fresh eyes and an open heart.
Read: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son…” The love of God in Christ fills his children with deep and abiding joy.
“…that whoever believes in him…” Those who trust Christ’s righteousness on their behalf are accepted before God.
“…should not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus perished so the Father’s children might live.
Apply: I confess that I am not perfect. I am self-centered and my heart is often far from you, God.
Say: Jesus, thank you for taking away my sin and conquering death. I trust in your righteousness. I am acceptable with the Father because of your love for me!
Your Spirit fills my spirit with deep and abiding joy!
You, God, will carry me through today and tomorrow.🌻
