Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: THE WORD THAT OVERCOMES DEATH

TEXT: John 8: 48-59(KJV)
8:48. Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
8:49. Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
8:50. And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
8:51. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
8:52. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

8:53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54. Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
8:55. Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

8:56. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
8:57. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Anglican Daily Fountain 9th March 2024 STUDY:

In our text, the Jews contended with Jesus for claiming to come from God. They labelled him a Samaritan that was possessed of the devil. They found it very difficult to believe in Christ because they did not understand the mystery of the word of God that Jesus is God himself. The Bible says in I Corinthians 2: 17-19 that natural men cannot receive the things of the spirit of God for they are foolish to them. We need the spirit of God to teach us to understand the things of God.

Jesus is the Word of God; He is the one who overcame death and has given us the grace to cross over from death to life (John 5: 24). He often said in his word that whoever lived and believed in him shall not die (John 11: 16). Jesus has promised us his children in John 11: 26 that if we believe in Him, we will die. Let us put our trust in the Lord and believe His word that we will not partake in the second death which is eternal death, but we have the grace to live eternally with Him after the first death, which is physical death which serves as a passage for us to eternity.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, grant me the grace to live eternally with you after this life in Jesus’ name.
