The Gospel of John is Simply Amazing! Devotional Time Opportunity

Are you looking for a fresh devotion time? Consider John’s gospel. 

The Gospel of John is simply amazing!

 I just want to share with you where I’m heading in my personal morning bible time, in case you’re interested, too. Below you will find a list or outline of a way to study John that is fascinating. Personally, I don’t like to rush it, so I can do some further scripture research as I study each attribute or claim.  Try to keep a sensitive ear to the Spirit of God as you go. Watch your center column concordance close in your bible and look up those references. Some bibles have a key word dictionary in the back. That’s a great tool to connect you to supporting passages in the bible. As I study Gods Word, the Holy Spirit tends to speak to my heart what to pray about, too.

 God’s Word is God’s message to us. God worked through real people in real time and real human history. Jesus came to this earth to bring about God’s kingdom & saving plan. In the gospel of John, we see many of Christ’s attributes and claims revealed. Maybe your devotional and prayer life has somehow got squeezed out from the business of life and you’re seeking something different and fresh to get you back in the Word of God. Consider a personal and systematic study in the gospel of John.

 John 20:31these things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” There is so much wisdom coupled with timeless messages from our Lord to feed our souls in John.
