Today's reading: John 8:12, John 8:39-59

As Jesus continues to dialogue with the people who are opposing Him about being the Son of God, the crux of their argument is that Abraham is their father and they follow him. In other words, their assertion is that their salvation is through their Jewish heritage or birthright as direct descendants of Abraham. Jesus, however, very clearly informs them otherwise, pointing out that while they are physical descendants of Abraham, they are in fact still sinners who are in need of a Savior.

"'Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies... Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God'" (vs. 43-44, 47).

Prior to making the decision to turn our lives over to Christ (entering into a personal relationship with Him), we are totally and completely slaves to sin. We are our own god. We're self-centered, and our will is to follow our sinful desires. BUT JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING!

With December upon us we are now in the Christmas season and its message of love and hope. Who do you know who needs to hear about, see and personally meet Jesus? (I guarantee you that you know someone--and probably several someones.) Will you step out and talk to these people (friends, co-workers, store clerks, family) about God's love for them? Invite someone to church this Christmas season--this Sunday, next Sunday, Christmas Eve. You could change someone's life for eternity! Tami
