Description

"The rapid pace of twenty-first-century living is not very conducive to setting aside time to slow down, read the Bible, and pray and meditate on God's Word. Yet such activity ought to be the daily priority of every Christian—it is the primary way God leads us in our sanctification. Just as physical nourishment is essential to physical life, so spiritual nourishment is essential to spiritual life—your growth in Christ depends on it.

That's why I offer you this new book of daily readings from God's Word. Its goal is to help you develop a consistency in reading and meditating on the truths of the Bible—yet this does not mean a large time commitment on your part.

This isn't' like other devotional books that merely offer inspirational thoughts and mediations to help you feel good about your life. This book contains substantial, thought-provoking selections that come from my commentaries on the gospels, which are products of my lifetime of study in God's Word."

—John MacArthur

Sample Text

THE PREEXISTENT WORD, PART 1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. —John 1:1-2.

The concept of “the Word” (logos in the Greek) was meaningful to both Jewish and Greek readers of this gospel. Greek philosophers defined it as the abstract principle of order and reason in the universe. Even laymen understood the term as one of the universe's most important principles, the source of wisdom.

Thus to John's Greek audience, he presented Jesus as the embodiment of the logos concept, though not as an impersonal force or emanation. God, the true logos, became a man, Jesus Christ. This concept was something new to Greek thought.

To his Jewish readers, on the other hand, John presented Jesus as the incarnation of divine power and revelation, a continuation of the Old Testament “word of the Lord” concept (cf. Gen. 15:1; Ex. 24:3-4; 1 Sam. 3:21; Ps. 33:6; Jer. 1:2). Among other things, Jesus was the agent of creation (Col. 1:16), inspired the New Testament through the Holy Spirit whom He sent (John 14:26; 15:26), initiated the new covenant (Luke 22:20), and was the One who instructed believers (John 10:27). As God's incarnate Word, Jesus is His final word to humanity: “God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son” (Heb. 1:1-2). Although Jesus was intimately with the Father from eternity past, He willingly left that glorious privilege and “emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.... He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Phil. 2:7-8).

ASK YOURSELF

Jesus is not all things to all people, yet He meets each of us at our individual points of need and our unique frames of reference. If you were to describe how Jesus proves His Word true in your own life, what ideas would come most quickly to mind?
