Ready to Rescue Day 33


6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him."


Praise God for the clarity of the gospel; that we can know without a doubt that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone. Repent from any anxiety and uncertainty that you have had about the eternal nature (including the here & now) of your relationship with God. Ask God the Father to help you to know Jesus in such a way that it shapes all of your relationships. Yield to God's will that you know Him and that you make Him know to everyone who has yet to believe in your spheres of influence.


  • Why dod we tend to shy away from sharing the Gospel when we know that the consequence of sin is deadly?
  • Who in your life do you need to share the Gospel with? (Start praying for that person and for the right opportunity to share). 


"Paul says that one weapon in this ongoing fight of faith is the practice of 'disciplining" the body. He was not unaware that the desires of the body are deceitful as well as delightful. He said that the 'old self' is 'being corrupted in accordance with the desires of deceit' (Ephesians 4:22). The nature of this deceit is to lure us subtly into living for the 'fleeting pleasures' of body and mind, rather than spiritual delights of knowing and serving God. These pleasures start as innocent delights in food and reading and resting and playing, but then become ends in themselves and choke off spiritual hunger for God."
