Important Job

John is the fourth book in the New Testament. It was written by John, one of Jesus’ disciples. In our verses for today, John tells us his purpose in writing this book. His purpose was “so that you can believe that Jesus is the Christ” (verse 31b).
When John wrote this book, there was a group of people who were spreading lies about Jesus. These people said that Jesus was not God’s Son. Maybe John wrote this book so that people could know the truth about Jesus.
God had an important job for John — to write about Jesus. And God has an important job for you, too. Maybe He wants you to give encouragement to a single mother, or lead a Bible study or prepare a meal for a hungry family. If you don’t do these things, then who will do them?
God is depending on you to share His message and His love with other people. Look for ways to serve Him today.
