The bible verse suggested to meditate and memorize this week "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."Romans 12:12(NIV)
is one of my favourites.I have often put this on cards when Christians were leaving the area to go to work or university in another part of the country.


Greetings family,

The Living Water, chapter 4; The Bread of Life, chapter 6.

He nourishes us continually, it is there for the asking, bless His name!

He is the I AM, which covers every area in our life, praise His name!

In the book of John, Nicodemus says what must I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus says you must be born of the water and Spirit (paraphrased). Just in case, the complete reading may be found in John, Chapter 3. :-). Not much is required of us to enter into the Kingdom of God. And one can say that same thought is continued in today's verses (using two different versions).

"They then said, What are we to do, that we may [habitually] be working the works of God? [What are we to do to carry out what God requires?] Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger]." (John 6:28-29, AMP)

They replied, “We want to perform God’s works, too. What should we do?” Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” (John 6:28-29, NLT)

All the "work(s)" is culminated in John 3:16:

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

So we don't have perform any thing for God because all of the requirements have been fulfilled on the cross - He did it all for us. Enjoy the gift!

Be blessed and be a blessing.


Hi - I'm Simon, I'm 36 and I'm in England. I started this year with the One Year Bible and have recently found your blog - and I'm SO pleased to have ! Your thoughts and words give me an additional perpective and the photos and images you include really do add to my daily experience of my daily study. Thank you for what you're doing.

One other thing ... have you disabled right click on images ? I was able to save a few when I first came here because they were really helpful for me, but can't seem to do that now ... ?

Your brother

Simon
