Daily Verses : John 1 : 43-51
Key Verse : John 1 : 47 : Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”
When Jesus met Nathanael, He saw him as a person who was genuine and in whom is no deceit and hypocrisy. Jesus saw Nathanael as someone with a pure heart, sincere and innocent both before the Lord and others. Nathanael does not have any concealed motivations. The Lord always searches for worshippers who are righteous and true, who have no deceit and is not made up or fake. One time the Lord confronted the Pharisees and scribes because their hearts were filled with hypocrisy and impure motivations. The Lord Jesus told Nathanael that he would see great things in his life because his heart is pure and sincere before the Lord. May we have a heart like Nathanael. Don’t simply look good on the outside yet have our hearts filled with evil and selfish thoughts. Evil thoughts will eventually affect our actions towards others. Concealed motivations will eventually be revealed and will harm others and in the end cause dissension among God’s children.
Do not live in deceit, with bad motivations, and be selfish. All of these things will destroy the unity and hinder great things from happening to us.
