Growing In Christ

Day 4: His Presence in Us

Read: Start by reading John 1:8–9 out loud a few times. 

“He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world” (John 1:8–9 NIV).

Day 3: Sent to Tell

Read: Start by reading John 1:6–7 out loud a few times. 

“ There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe” (John 1:6–7 NIV).

Meditate: Is it possible that as Christians in a hurting world, we should also be a witness so that many might believe? As you meditate on this thought, read the verses again replacing the words man, he, and him with woman, she, and her and the name John with your own name.

Day 2: Misunderstood

Read: Start by reading John 1:5 out loud a few times. 

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5 NIV).

Meditate: Why is it that darkness does not overcome or understand the light?

As a Christian woman, you can think of the very presence of Jesus as a light shining in you. Imagine His light shining through you in this hurting world that does not understand the light. Read John 1:5 again with that thought in mind.
