John in 21: Chapter 21

Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. John 21:25

Read today's passage: John 21:1-25

As we've worked through the Book of John the past three weeks, we hope you've seen how the Word of God can apply to your life today. Here's a couple of those applications. First, Jesus is alive! That's something that's repeated every Easter, but let it sink in. Though Jesus is now in heaven with God, the Man that we read about who lived 2,000 years ago is still alive. He's still caring for those who love Him, and like we learned in chapter 17, He's still praying for us. (See Hebrews 7:25.)

Second, God has sent the Holy Spirit. We read in the Book of Acts about the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit arrived just as Jesus promised. That Spirit, in all of us who believe, is currently and daily carrying out the promises Jesus made, to teach us and to help us remember Jesus. Finally, Jesus has a promise waiting to be fulfilled. He promised He would come again so that we can be with Him where He is. (See John 14:3.) And that gives us hope.

It's our prayer that you'll continue spending time in the Word every day and connecting with the God who was, who is and who is to come. God bless.
