This is a wonderful post.
John 6:37: I had just read this verse, among others one day last year before my mom died. She was in her mother-in-law suite and wanted to talk. She said she was afraid she might not go to heaven. God had just given this verse to me that day and I had memorized it. Just for mom. She’s been a faithful disciple all of her life. She left me to be with the Lord last September 22. It’s hard but I know where she is. I watched her go. It was amazing.
John 6:37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
John 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
John 6:40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
The ‘red letter’ Bible emphasizes the words of Jesus by making them red. But sometimes we can learn just as much by which words he didn’t say. I would like to submit to you the ‘Blue Letter Version’ of things Jesus never said.
He never said:
V. 1) You’re too far gone to be saved.
V. 2) I’m so disappointed in you.
V. 3) This wouldn’t be happening if you were a better Christian.
V. 4) It’s okay not to love certain people.
V. 5) Everyone should be just like you.
V. 6) Its all up to you.
V. 7) You don’t have to forgive someone who has hurt you.
V. 8) You missed my will for your life.
V. 9) I’ve given up on you.
V. 10) This is a cross you must bear alone.
When we think through these we should realize that each ‘verse’ is wrong.
