Seeing and Believing

"But I tell you the truth..." (John 16:7)

Over and over in the gospels, Jesus declares this. I tell you the truth. Will I believe Him? Will I trust that His Word is true and base my understanding of reality on what He says? Or will I begin with my emotions and evaluate what He says in light of my fickle feelings and limited understanding?

"This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled..." (John 18:9)

Over and over again, the gospels show Jesus fulfilling both the Old Testament prophets' words and His own words. We see Him keeping God's promises--so that we will believe God is a promise-keeper. What He says will be fulfilled!

Blog silence...

This close to August, it does cause the mind to wonder.

Love you!
