Daily Reading – 2 Kings 24-25 / John 13:21-38
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
John 13:21 & 25 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me…. He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
You might think after following Jesus for His earthly ministry the disciples would know in their hearts they loved Him and wouldn’t betray Him. Several times Peter piped up and said, “Not ME! I will follow you wherever you go!” Yet when Jesus said one would betray Him, all the disciples wondered, “Is it ME?”
As believers we know that we love the Lord. We know we have by faith accepted His precious gift of salvation. Yet we must ask as did the disciples, have I betrayed the love of Christ? Can we say we are serving Him, sharing the gospel as commanded, and living for Him, as we should?
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Oh how good to know we serve a loving and forgiving God.
Yet on occasion, we must ask ourselves, “Is It ME?”
