SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE 14TH FEBRUARY 2024 DEVOTIONAL

Read and Meditate on Today’s Daily Guide Devotional for 14 February  2024. May the Lord bless you as you study!

TODAY’S TOPIC: WITNESSING IN STYLE

Opening Prayer: Grant me depth of insight, revelation and knowledge as I meditate on this passage, O Lord.

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 9:24-34
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q7: What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

Scripture Union Daily Guide 14 February 2024 Outline: 

What a conviction (vs.24-25)! Even though the healed blind man was yet to know Jesus as the Son of man, no intimidation could make him change the story of his healing or what he knew about Jesus: “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see” (v.25)! Clear understanding of our experience with Jesus instils boldness for witnessing to everyone, anywhere. When we tell people about Jesus’ power to save, we should ask them if they would follow Him (v.27).

What can we learn from the people’s comparison of Moses and Jesus in v.28? In these days when people trust the “man of God” more than God Himself, we need to be watchful against the bitter root of unbelief creeping into our hearts. Notice the boldness and sound knowledge of God’s word that this man born blind had (vs.30-34; cf. John 15:5)!

Practice/Word Application
What’s more? What the blind man’s parents feared happened to him; they insulted and threw him out but who shall separate us from the love of Christ (Romans 8:35)?
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Help me, Lord, not to despise the truth no matter how hard it may be to comprehend but heed it and repent.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Genesis 1:11
