Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 10, A.D. 2005

Acts 19:1-8
Psalm 68:2-7
John 16:29-33

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you, just as you gave him authority over all people, so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him." (John 17:1)

O what a truly wonderful and mysterious gift we have received! What a marvelous plan God had for us for all time. He gave His Son authority over all of us so He could give us eternal life. It is a pure and complete gift, freely given to all. Praise God!

But the gift is more than eternal life. Jesus continues, "Now this is eternal life, that they should know You, the only true God, and the One whom You sent, Jesus Christ." The gift is of the Father and the Son themselves, and by our receiving this free gift of the Son and eternal life, we glorify both the Father and the Son.

Thank you Lord for your eternal Gift!
