DIVINE APPOINTMENT

OBSERVATION: JOHN, AN APOSTLE, WAS AN EYEWITNESS OF CHRIST’S LIFE, DEATH AND RESURRECTION. HE MADE IT CLEAR CHRIST WAS DEITY AND THE FULL EXPRESSION OF ALL THAT GOD IS. HIS MESSAGE WAS CLEAR: ETERNAL LIFE COMES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!

INTERPRETATION: JOHN 20:21 (NKJV) SO JESUS SAID TO THEM, PEACE TO YOU! AS THE FATHER HAS SENT ME, I ALSO SEND YOU.

POINTS TO PONDER:

WITHIN THE GROUP OF TWELVE APOSTLES, THEE MEN, PETER, JAMES AND JOHN, CHRIST ASKED TO DRAW ASIDE TO PRAY AND GAIN SPIRITUAL INSIGHT. EACH IS EXAMPLES OF INDIVIDUALITY IN PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST. JOHN PARTICULARLY WROTE TO A UNIVERSAL AUDIENCE DESIRING MEN TO COME TO CHRIST. GOD DOES HAVE A WAY OF GETTING THINGS DONE (DEUTERONOMY 29:29).

GOD APPOINTS THE PATH OF A CHRISTIAN. THE SCRIPTURE IS FULL OF MEN AND WOMEN FOLLOWING THE PATH GOD HAVE PRESCRIBED FOR THEM. PETER, JAMES AND JOHN ARE GOOD EXAMPLES. LUKE 8: 1-3 LISTS MINISTERING WOMEN WHO FOLLOWED CHRIST. CHRIST SAID “MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE AND FOLLOW ME (JOHN 10:4)

APPLICATION: NOT SURE OF YOUR CALL? LISTEN TO CHRIST’S WORDS, “FOLLOW ME”. LEARN TO FOLLOWHIM FIRST! A FULLER LIGHT WILL EMERGE AS HE LEADS!
