QT 10/04/2024 Wednesday READ John 5
What kind of resurrection?

John continued to write about the signs of Jesus and the eternal life that He gives to those who hear Jesus' words and believe the Father who sent Him (John 5:24).

In the conversation with the Jews, Jesus was persuading them to receive Him:-

The Jews set their hope on Moses, but Moses wrote about Jesus (John 5:45-46). Therefore, the Jews should believe Jesus. The SCRIPTURES "bear witness about me" (John 5:39).

John the Baptist, a publicly recognised PROPHET of those days, bore witness about Jesus (John 5:31-36). So did the Father (John 5:19-23,37).

Jesus' claim of equality with the Father (John 5:17-18) was backed up by the SIGN of healing the "invalid for thirty-eight years" (John 5:5,6-15). Because Jesus could perform restoration for the lame, He should be believed as being able to give life.

APPLICATION: Focus on learning about and accepting Jesus today. Avoid getting entangled with niceties about the law of Sabbath, etc (John 5:9-10) or ending up wanting to kill Jesus (John 5:18) while He was trying to save (John 5:17,20-21).

REFLECTION: Resurrection is certain. The only question is which one would we experience: "Resurrection of life" or "Resurrection of judgment" (John 5:28-29). Which is yours?

MEMORY VERSE: "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life" (John 5:24).
