Scripture Union Daily Guide 3 March 2024 || Total Surrender to God

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 3rd March 2024 (Sunday)

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: TOTAL SURRENDER TO GOD

Opening Prayer: Open my eyes O Lord that I might behold wondrous things from your word in Jesus name.

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 12:20-36

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q7: What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 3 March 2024

Read vs.20-21 again. What lessons can we learn from the Greeks who would not return to their country without having personal encounter with Christ, and from Philip and Andrew, who led them to Christ?

In vs.23-28 Jesus taught the people about His imminent death. Notice that the way He viewed His death in v.23. He used the illustration of a seed to teach that without death there can be no fruitfulness. If we want our lives to bring glory to God, we must be ready to die to self (Galatians 2:20) and totally surrender to God’s will, like a seed that is planted (v.24). Notice what will happen if we are unwilling to surrender to Christ (v.25a), and if we surrender, follow, and serve Him (vs.25b-26)?

Observe that it was a trying time in Jesus’ life (v.27). Though He was fully aware of the agony of crucifixion that lies ahead, yet He surrendered to the will of His Father (v.28). We also need to learn how to allow God and let Him have His way in our lives when we too face troubles and trials.

Practice/Word Application
So what? When Jesus prayed, God responded instantly (vs.27-29). When was the last time God spoke to you in response to your prayer?

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

Jesus keep me near the Cross
1. Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain,
Free to all—a healing stream,
Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.

Refrain
In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
From the cross my ransomed soul
Nothing then shall sever.

2. Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
Sheds its beams around me.

3. Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadow o’er me.

4. Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I see my Savior’s face,
Leave His presence never.

Closing Prayer
Lord, help me to surrender my life totally to you daily and be your true disciple.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Luke 1:74‐75
74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
