Second Sunday of Easter – John 20:31

Grace, peace and mercy to you from God our Father and from our risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

It seems that many people today try to turn God’s Word into an instruction book for daily living. Without doubt there is great, godly wisdom that comes from the Holy Scriptures, but the Bible was never meant to be a book of instructions or a text book to answer all of life’s questions. 

John makes it very clear that the purpose of his book, and this is really true of the whole Bible, is not to write down a history of everything that Jesus ever did, but that his readers may know who Jesus is, that they may believe in him, and that by believing they may have life in his name.
