TOPIC: WHEN GOD IS GLORIFIED IN YOUR LIFE
TEXT: JOHN 11:45-57
The miracle had the effect of glorifying God, as a result of which many believed in Jesus as Saviour and Lord. Unfortunately, the miracle also provoked jealousy among the proud Jewish religious leaders and stirred up their passion to kill Him.
The High Priest unconsciously prophesized that Jesus would die for the sins of the nation of Israel and the world. The High Priest's intentions against Jesus were evil but God's purpose for the High Priest's involuntary prophecy was for good. Jesus death and resurrection were for the salvation of the world and all of those who would confess, repent from their sins and accept Him as Saviour and Lord. As a child of God, no matter the evil intentions and pronouncements of men against you, pray that God be glorified in your life so that many others may be saved. Also, rest assured that, no matter the evil intentions and pronouncements of men, God's plans for you are to give you a great future and hope
Has anyone made evil pronouncements against you or your family this New Year out of jealousy or envy?
Oh God, be glorified in my life and family so that many others would come to the saving knowledge of Christ; including those who have made evil pronouncements against me, in Jesus name, Amen.
