God’s Truth for Trying Times - 10/27/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 John 5:5-8

Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree. [1 John 5:5-8 ESV] 


CONSIDER: The Spirit is the one who testimonies of the reality of a person's salvation. Jesus Christ came in the flesh in the incarnation and comes into our lives by God's Spirit through God's Word.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
