Week Three, Day Three
Why is it that some things Jesus says and does are easy for us to accept and others are so difficult? Does a lack of understanding indicate a lack of belief?
Read John 8:31-47.
Jesus was teaching some very hard truths about Himself and these new believers had a difficult time understanding what He was saying. In v. 34, Jesus identifies why they are having a hard time understanding what He is saying.

Awareness Prayer – Jesus, reveal any bias so I can understand you more.
Reflection Question – What biases did Jesus reveal to you?
