    January 4, 2018 Our Daily Bread – Daily Devotions  What Do the Experts Say?


    Read: John 5:31–40

    These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life. John 5:39–40

    Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby writes of the “uncanny ability of experts to get things hopelessly, cataclysmically wrong.” A quick glance at recent history shows he’s right. The great inventor Thomas Edison, for instance, once declared that talking movies would never replace silent films. And in 1928, Henry Ford declared, “People are becoming too intelligent ever to have another war.” Countless other predictions by “experts” have missed the mark badly. Genius obviously has its limits.

    Only one Person is completely reliable, and He had strong words for some so-called experts. The religious leaders of Jesus’s day claimed to have the truth. These scholars and theologians thought they knew what the promised Messiah would be like when He arrived.
    Knowing the future is uncertain; knowing the One who holds the future is a sure thing.


    Jesus cautioned them, “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life.” Then He pointed out how they were missing the heart of the matter. “These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life” (John 5:39–40).

    As another new year gets underway, we’ll hear predictions ranging from the terrifying to the wildly optimistic. Many of them will be stated with a great deal of confidence and authority. Don’t be alarmed. Our confidence remains in the One at the very heart of the Scriptures. He has a firm grip on us and on our future.

    Father, whenever we are troubled or alarmed, help us to seek You. We commit this coming year and all it holds to You.

    Knowing the future is uncertain; knowing the One who holds the future is a sure thing.
    | Bible in a Year: Genesis 10–12; Matthew 4
