Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 8 March 2024

In the last two days, we saw Jesus announce His betrayal (13:21), His imminent departure (13:33), and Peter’s denial (13:38). The disciples were obviously upset. They were disturbed and troubled in mind. Knowing this, Jesus comforts them, urging them not to be troubled. Such a situation was an occasion to exercise faith in the Father and the Son. Jesus knows our troubles and is ever near to comfort us (Psalm 46:1).

When in a confused state, seek the only source of security (v.1). If we lose all else, we must ensure not to lose the source of our hope (vs.2-3). A late professor of religion and church minister wrote a book titled, Road Junction. He argued that like a road junction, all religions will ultimately lead to God. See Jesus’ clear response to such position in v.6. Note the article, ‘the’, not ‘a’. This is one reason why we should diligently help people know and accept Jesus as their Lord.

How will you explain the special relationship between Jesus and God, the Father, to an unbeliever (v.10; cf. Colossians 1:15, John 1:18). Notice Jesus’ promise in v.13, repeated for emphasis in v.14.

Practice/Word Application
What next? Jesus has clearly shown that heaven is a reality. There is life beyond the grave. If you believe this, how are you getting ready for it?

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

Closing Prayer
Pray for a life-transforming encounter with Jesus and the grace to grow in your knowledge of Him.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Isaiah 65:24
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”
