Scripture Union Daily Guide 30 March 2024

Observe the hypocrisy and ignorance of the Jewish religious leaders. They were preparing to celebrate a special Sabbath, but they crucified the Lord of the Sabbath. Why did they want Jesus’ legs broken (v.31)? Like the Jewish leaders, many of us today are also guilty of religious zeal with wrong motives or selfish interest. We promote denominational distinctions and practices at the expense of scriptural truth, not necessarily because we love the Lord, but mainly to protect some personal entitlements and interest or due to faulty understanding of what the Scripture really teaches on those practices.

What is the significance of vs.33-34? (Compare vs.36-37; Psalm 34:20; Zechariah 12:10). Two secret disciples openly identified with Jesus when the regular ones lacked the capacity to further His cause (vs.38-42). Their boldness in demanding for the body of Christ, for burial, is outstanding and worthy of emulation (vs.38-42). Every one of us has something special to contribute to God’s kingdom and the accomplishment of His purpose in our generation. It could be something big or small. However, this may require courage to stand for Christ amid oppositions, or even when it is risky to do so.

Practice/Word Application
What next? What is the unique contribution you are sensing the Lord would want you to make to His work in your little corner? Take a bold step and start today!
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Help me, Lord, to understand the times when my service is most needed and to respond accordingly and promptly.
Prayer for the week
• Pray for the Judiciary, that they will have the fear of God in their hearts, to uphold truth and justice. • Pray for those who have been wrongly judged. Pray that God will intervein on their matter, so that the truth around their cases will come out, and they will be set free

Offer a prayer of faith in line with 2 Samuel Chapter 22: 15 ‐ 20
15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them. 16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; 18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. 19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. 20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
