Growing In Christ

Day 7: Seeing Glory

Read: Start by reading John 1:14 out loud a few times. 

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 NIV).

Day 6: Born on Purpose

Read: Start by reading John 1:12–13 out loud a few times. 

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God” (John 1:12–13 NIV).

Meditate: Just as John the Baptist was born for a purpose, God also created each of us on purpose.

Read: Start by reading John 1:10–11 out loud a few times.
