Heavenly Father, bless us with greater trust that you are nearby and long to help. Dear Father, bless and empower us to be the person you want us to be. Fill us with your Spirit so we may live our life here more like Jesus lived his life here on earth. In the name of the Savior we pray. Amen.

Scripture: John 8:12-20
12Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." 13The Pharisees then said to him, "You are bearing witness to yourself; your testimony is not true." 14Jesus answered, "Even if I do bear witness to myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I have come and where I am going, but you do not know where I come or where I am going. 15You judge according to the flesh, I judge no one. 16Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone that judge, but I and he who sent me. 17In your law it is written that the testimony of two men is true; 18I bear witness to myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness to me." 19They said to him therefore, "Where is your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father; if you knew me, you would know my Father also." 20These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The Gospel accounts explain how Jesus had to face unjust accusations made by the Pharisees, the ruling elders of Israel. They were distress with Jesus' teaching and his healing on the Sabbath. They plotted what charges they might bring against him in order to arrest him and bring him to examination. They wanted to not only silence him, but put him to death for his claim to be the Messiah. They blamed him of blasphemy because he claimed that have authority identical with God. O gracious and Holy Father, give us wisdom to perceive you, attentiveness to seek you, patience to wait for you, eyes to observe you, a heart to meditate upon you, and a life to announce you; through the power of the Spirit of Jesus our Lord.
