Today’s Reading: John 20

(Please read John 20: 1 – 31 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)

“She turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus”
John 20: 14

Many times when Jesus talked to me I did not realize that it was Jesus talking to me. I thought a person, a preacher, a book, a painting… Again today Jesus asked me just like He asked me to count how many times “see” appears when I was reading about to write the Day 1.

There are 12 “see” in John 20. And out of that 20 “see” most of them are the no.4 “see” as in my Day 1:
4/ Horas(No one has ever seen God; I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God, John 1: 18, 34) – To see with the mind, spiritual eye. This is the only Greek word for hearing!
This is the only Greek word for hearing. Seeing and hearing should be together!

Jesus said to her, “Mary” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!”
John 20:16

Do you realize that Jesus is talking to you? Have you seen Him? Have you heard Him calling your name now? What are you going to say to Him?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to be able to see you and hear you and realize that it is you. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
