The Challenge — Day 168

Today’s Scripture: John 19:28 – 20:10
[Click the reference above to read on BibleGateway.com.]

Several times in our passage today, the fulfilling of Scripture is mentioned.

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said
(to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.”
John 19:28
For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled:
“Not one of his bones will be broken.” And again another
Scripture says, “They will look on him whom they have pierced.”
John 19:36-37
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb.
He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth,
which had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up
in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first,
also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand
the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
John 20:6-9
It’s clear to see, God keeps His Word.
We don’t always understand what Scripture is saying or what exactly a specific prophetic Word will look like when it is fulfilled. But rest assured… He keeps His Word.
God does not forget what He says.
It is impossible for Him to lie.
The question is, do we know what He says? do we remember?
My prayer for those participating in the challenge of reading the gospels in 170 days is for each to develop a hunger for His Word. A hunger for Him, the Word made flesh, and continue to pursue Him each day through Scripture.
Father God, fill me with a desire to know You through Your Word.
Remind me that You keep all of Your Word. You do not forget. 
You are faithful to what You’ve said. May I be faithful to Your Word.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
The Lord is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.
Psalm 145:13 ESV
