Scripture Union Daily Guide 14 March 2024 || Focus On God’s Promises

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 14th March 2024 (Thursday)

Do You Know That? Daily Guide Reading is published by Scripture Union Press & Books Ltd, an arm of Scripture Union Nigeria. Daily Guide is a true nondenominational, interdenominational Christian Bible engagement/reading aid – meditate on the Bible without denominational colorations. May the Lord bless you as you study!

TODAY’S TOPIC: FOCUS ON GOD’S PROMISES

OPENING PRAYER: Oh Lord, fill me with the power of the Holy Ghost as I study your word.

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 16:12-24

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• Q4: Is there any promise for me to believe or hope for?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 14 March 2024

It is one thing to personally desire to know all truths about Christ, to become like Him, but it is another thing to be available to be guided into these truths. The same person who guides is also the one who helps us know the right and wrong as we patiently learn and practise the truth. This person is none other than the Holy Spirit. What other services does He extend to us (vs.12-15)?

For the disciples, the nature of missions, oppositions to missions and results of mission efforts were future experiences which they would only understand with the coming of Holy Spirit (v.13). Since the Holy Spirit has been given, all we need to do to understand and practise scriptures is to depend on Him.

Read vs.16-24 again and observe the reaction of the disciples to Christ’s departure (v.20). While the world rejoiced, the disciples wept and lamented. But the sorrow was turned to joy when Christ resurrected. We may suffer and sorrow now but when Christ returns, we shall have everlasting joy. This should encourage us to keep holding on to the Lord (2 Timothy 2:11-13).

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Lord, help me to remain faithful to you to the end despite tempting pressures of the world’s system.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with John 17:2
“As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”
