TODAY’S TOPIC: FEAR IS AN ENEMY OF FAITH

OPENING PRAYER: Grant me grace dear Lord to apply what you will teach me today as I read this passage.
SCRIPTURE: JOHN 12:37-50

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q5: Is there any warning for me to heed?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 4 March 2024

No matter how we preach, there are people who will not believe what they hear (v.37). This should not discourage us from sharing the gospel message. Read vs.42-43 again. Many believed in Christ, even the leaders, but could not declare their faith publicly. Why? Do we also behave like that today? Fear of men and praise of men are two enemies of faith. If we love the praise of men or are afraid of what men will say or do to us, we cannot be true disciples of Christ.

Public identification with Christ, is a mark of true discipleship (Luke 9:26-27). Some people have been reluctant to follow Christ for fear they will be disowned by their family or community. Some of us are also not able to stand for the truth for the same reason. How do vs.44-46 help us to overcome such fear and stand for Christ?
Observe how Jesus and the Father work in harmony (vs.47-50). What can we learn from this? Can we equally say, like Jesus, that our messages are from God? Is it what God tells us that we tell people?

Practice/Word Application
What next? How can we overcome the fear of men and help those who are procrastinating putting their faith in Christ because of the fear of their family or community?

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

Closing Prayer
Lord, help me to proclaim only your word to those around me.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with 2 Samuel 22:40
