4 x 6 Plan | Read: John 8:12-30 & Galatians 5:1-15

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”(John 5:68)

Have you ever heard of Steven Covey? He wrote The 7 habits of highly successful people? My mentor reads one book every single week and told me once that Covey’s book was in his top 5.  Obviously I read it lol.  It’s a really great book with key life-lessons. Later, his son Franklin added an 8th value: Trust. He said: “Trust is a key aspect. Search for people you can trust! Not because you understand everything they do, but because you decided to trust them. That makes collaboration much easier.”

In Jesus’ life on earth, His teaching was not understood very well. The wise people in those days tried to understand Him. But what Jesus was teaching was beyond their understanding. Jesus told them that His Father was God. This did not fit into the frame of mind of the teachers of those days.

Then Jesus said: “I am who I am”. In His days the words ‘I am’, are reserved for God. Some people saw this as blasphemy. It was stretching their thinking too much. But this story ends with many people deciding to believe in Jesus. They did not understand it all, but they made a decision. They decided to trust Jesus.

Today it’s the same. Do you believe in Jesus and what He said? Maybe you don’t understand fully. But you can make a decision to trust Jesus. And that will change your life. Trusting Jesus might be the best you can do in your life. Discover Jesus!
