March 24 – Today’s Readings – John 5-6 and Psalms 84

Jesus said some things in Chapter 6 that deserve a second read:

“The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” (Vs. 29)
“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (Vs. 37)
“And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (Vs. 39-40)
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day” (Vs.44)
“I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.” (Vs. 47)
“This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him.” (Vs. 65)
We begin to see a clear doctrinal pattern in these verses. The Father draws people to Jesus – He “gives” them to Jesus. The Father enables people by giving them the gift of repentance as they come to the Lord. Once they believe in Jesus they receive everlasting life and Jesus will never drive them away. The guarantee is that He will raise the believer on the last day.

Stop for a moment and consider the implication of what you have just read. Father has called you – enabled you – and you have come to Jesus, believing that He is your Savior and God. You are eternally secure because of this divine relationship you have come into. This is powerful stuff. The Devil has no place in you anymore! Your “spirit-man” now has an allergy to sin! You are born again and have partaken of the Lamb of God.

But – what about those who seem to have forsaken the Lord, you ask? Simple – either they are a Jonah – running away till God sends a big fish after them or else they are a Judas – never having come to a real born again experience – they have resisted and therefore blasphemed the Holy Spirit. [Matthew 12:31] Once we have tasted of the Kingdom of God and have become children of God, our patterns of life change; we are transformed little by little. Our ups and downs lead us only further into God. Even when we fall, we fall upwards. Whether we are wealthy or poor – suffering or free from all discomfort – rejoicing or in sorrow – God works all things together for good for those who love God – for those who are called according to His purposes.

What a Gospel we have to share! – That mere humans can become sons and daughters of the Most High God!


1. Do you believe that your salvation is secure? – That nothing (except you) can snatch you out of God’s loving arms?

2. Do you believe that God works in all situations to bring you closer to Himself and make you more like Jesus?

If you answered “yes” to these two questions, you have officially become a Super-Natural person!
