BIBLE READING: John 15:1-8
Key Verse: “Remain in me, as I also remain in you” JOHN 15:4
A speaker was talking about what it means to “remain” in Jesus (John 15:4) and to trust Him completely in everything. He repeated several times, “It means that in every circumstance you can keep on saying, ‘For this I have Jesus.’ ”
The meeting was then opened for everyone to share their thoughts. One young woman said, “Just a few minutes ago I got a text. It reads, ‘Mum is very ill; take train home now.’ When I saw those words, I knew that tonight’s message was meant just for me. I said to myself, ‘For this I have Jesus.’ Instantly I felt peace and strength.”
Three or four weeks later the speaker got an email from this woman. It read, “Thank you again for the message you gave that day. Life has become filled with God-centred confidence, for I have come to realise that no matter what life brings, for this I have Jesus.” That Christian had found that Jesus would be with her “through fire and water”, and would bring her “to a place of abundance” (Ps. 66:12). If you are going through a tough time, remember—for this you have Jesus!
KEY POINT: FOR THIS I HAVE JESUS.
