Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:30-31 (NIV)
Your name is good and right and true. There is love and joy and peace and hope in your name. There is meaning and purpose and power in your name. Your name is above all names. At your name everything in heaven and on earth will bow down. Your name is holy. In your name there is forgiveness of sin. In your name there is deliverance from evil. In your name there is healing. There is fullness of life in your name both now and forever. Your name is certainly worthy of all my praise and worship. Yes, it is.
Your name has stopped me in my tracks. Your name turned my life around. Your name caused me to come to you. Your name led me to bow down and confess all my sins to you. Your name has forgiven all my sins and cleansed all my unrighteousness. Your name has given me a completely new life in you. Yes, it has.
How is that you have come to believe in me? How is that you have come to turn your life over to me? How have you welcomed me into your life as your Savior and Lord? How is that you are continuing to live the life that I have secured for you? I have heard your word. I have listened to your word. I have held on to your word. I have let your word dwell in me richly. I have taken your word into my heart and mind and life. I have allowed your word to change the entire course of my life. Your word has changed my heart. Your word is transforming my mind. Your word is guiding my life. I am living in the fullness of life that you have secured for me because I am loving and following and obeying you. Yes, you are.
What will you continue to do with my word? I will continue to hear and listen attentively to your word. I keep your word ever before me. I will not let your word out of my sight. Your word will be in my heart and on my mind. Not a day will go by that I will fail to hear and follow and obey your word. I can say this only because I know that you will help me to hold on to your word. You will strengthen me by your word. You will guard and guide me by your word. Your word will give me the fullness of life you have for me both now and forever. Yes, I will.
Lord, thank you for your word. Your word has spoken powerfully to me. Reading and hearing your word has caused me to believe in you. Believing in you has changed the entire course of my life. Believing in you has given me a new life in you now and forever. Amen
