John 5:30-47

“You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life.” (John 5:39, 40 NLT)

Scripture is important because it helps us connect with Jesus. Yet it is possible to know a lot of scripture, and to know a lot about Jesus, but not actually know Him personally.

I want more than just head knowledge and wisdom from the Word. I want to meet Jesus in the Word. I want to know Him. May I avoid the trap of going through the motions of “doing devotions” as a merely a daily task or discipline. May I keep its purpose in mind — to know Jesus.
