“it is these (Scriptures) that testify about Me”

Today’s devotion comes from John 5:37-47.

“And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me.  You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.  You do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He sent.

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life;  it is these that testify about Me;  and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.  I do not receive glory from men;  but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.  I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me;  if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.  How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?  Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father;  the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope.  For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.  But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”  John 5:37-47.

Scripture is the Word of God which is divided between the Old Testament and New Testament.  The Old Testament points to a coming Savior.  The New Testament presents that Savior, Jesus Christ, and shows how He fulfilled everything written in the Old Testament about Him:  “it is these (Scriptures) that testify about Me”.  “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.”

“but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God;  and that believing you may have life in His name.”  John 20:31.
