I want to encourage you to take a few minutes today and open your Bible and spend a little time with God. It can change your life.
If you don’t know where to start, let me give you a suggestion. The Gospel of John (the 4th book in the New Testament) is a great place to get to know the Lord.
Here are some of my favourite passages from the Gospel of John:
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16 NIV
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” ~ John 14:6 NIV
Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God. ~ John 1:12 NIV
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born again.” ~ John 3:3 NIV
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. ~ John 10:10 NIV
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me.” ~ John 14:1 NIV
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ~ John 8:32 NIV
“If you love Me, keep My commands.” ~ John 14:15 NIV
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” ~ John 13:34 NIV
“God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in Spirit and in truth.” ~ John 4:24 NIV
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in Me will live, even though they die;” ~ John 11:25 NIV
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” ~ John 15:5 NIV
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. ~ John 3:17 NIV
So go find your Bible, grab a coffee, sit back in your favourite chair and spend a little time reading God’s Word. Spending time with God is one of the most powerful and rewarding things you can do today!
