2017 Series

Monday, June 10, 2019: John 7-8

”Whoever is of God hears the words of God.” (Jn 8:47) Your Heavenly Father has something to say; Open your Bible every day and let Him speak to you.

—Steven Williamson (Resurrection, Cairo)


Tuesday, June 11, 2019: John 9-10

Jesus healed the blind beggar in a very personal and sacramental way, by sitting and spitting and mixing and touching. Likewise, the Lord opened your eyes to the "Light of the World" at your Baptism. Give heed that you have a hands-on God, and pray He may continue to touch your life in seemingly simple ways to accomplish His amazing will.

Wednesday, June 12, 2019: John 11-12

Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live. (Numbers 21:9) Likewise, Jesus said, "and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to Myself.” (John 12:32) The Lord was lifted up and put to death so you may see, believe, and be saved. Draw near to the His cross, and LIVE!

Friday, June 14, 2019: John 14-15

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.” Earthly peace is fleeting; it may come and go with each new interaction, every upcoming election… but the peace of Jesus is endures forever.

—Steven Williamson (Resurrection, Cairo)

You have a world of problems, but take heart… Jesus has “overcome the world”.

—Steven Williamson (Resurrection, Cairo)


Monday, June 17, 2019: John 18-19

“It is finished” – Jesus spoke these last words from the cross not as a defeated sigh, but rather as a victory cry over sin, death, and the devil. Life was won for you!

If God can change Saul, He can save anyone! There’s no heart too hard, no eye too blind, no life too lost for the love of Christ.

—Steven Williamson (Resurrection, Cairo)


Wednesday, June 26, 2019: Acts 11-12

When the servant girl named Rhoda reported that Peter was free they said to her, “You are out of your mind.” You too have Good News – that you have been set free from sin. People may not always believe you, but preach loud, proud, and full of joy. They too need the freedom of forgiveness.
