Know Jesus

DO YOU recall the first time you saw a sunset and knew it was made by our Creator? How long until you saw and believed in the Light, who is Jesus?

In Romans 1:19-20, Paul writes that all people, since the beginning of creation, know about God’s power and character by the things He has made.

Like you, our Native people know our Creator by what they have seen. However, many of them still need to hear the truth about His Son, Christ Jesus.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people will not only know our Creator, but also His Son, Jesus, who is the Light.

Matthew 4:16 says, “Although your people live in darkness, they will see a bright light. Although they live in the shadow of death, a light will shine on them.”

Ask our Creator to open the eyes of our First Nations people, who know Him by His creation, so that they will also know His Son, who is their Light and their Salvation.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.

John 3:19-21; Psalm 27:1; Psalm 67:7; Ezekiel 38:23; Romans 1:18-20; John 16:13; Mark 12:29-34; James 1:27.
