Listen, Day 15: John 6-9

Saralynn and I have been out of town at a conference for the last couple of days, but we were listening. I’ll get caught up on my posts in the next couple of days. Here are┬ámy listen thoughts from Sunday’s passage:

  • I wonder if the offer for kingship was a test or temptation that Jesus chose to run from
  • Many people ask, “What does God want me to do?” Jesus’ answer was simple: “God wants you to have faith in the one he sent.”
  • This statement reminds me of another one of Jesus’ teachings about those who “hunger and thirst for righteousness” (Matthew 5:6, NET)
  • This is a great passage that teaches both 1) God’s perfect knowledge of the future and our responsibility to believe in him and 2) God’s ultimate hand in giving salvation.
  • I don’t know how anyone can read this conversation and say that Jesus never said he was God.
  • I love this guy’s testimony! “I don’t know about all the fancy stuff. All I know is this: I was blind, but now I can see.” It doesn’t get any better than that!
  • This lifelong-blind beggar knew God’s heart behind the Scriptures better than the teachers did.
