Don’s Daily Devotions

Join us as we read the scriptures and a daily devotion written by Don Crisp. We pray these messages will bless us all at this time.

Starting on Monday 6th April, we will be sharing daily devotional readings, prepared for us by Don Crisp. Don will be leading us through the Gospel of John, starting this Easter time with John 13. He then moves into Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.


Day 30 – John 17:24-26

Read John 17:24-26 V24: Jesus now speaks in His prayer of His desire for His people to be with Him in glory – not that we are to think this is in any doubt, it will be the fruit of His finished work. His prayer lays before the Father what He has already ordained, in…


Day 29 – John 17:20-23

Read John 17:20-23 V20: Now the prayer reaches beyond these first disciples, to those who will believe through their witness and the gospel they preach. This speaks not just of that “second generation”, of course, but of the whole ongoing work of the gospel throughout the age. Of us, if we are believers today –…


Day 28 – John 17:15-19

Read John 17:15-19 V15: Jesus does not ask the Father to remove them from the world and all its dangers, for they are to be His witnesses to that world, the means of bringing others to Him, as God is pleased to work through them – as are we still today. His prayer is that…


Day 27 – John 17:11-14

Read John 17:11-14: V11: Now Jesus will leave the world, but they remain in it – the hostile world He has spoken of in John 15:18-21. So He prays that the Father will “keep them” – protect them and preserve them, NOT primarily from physical harm, almost all of these first disciples would die a martyr’s death,…


Day 26 – John 17:6-10

Read John 17:6-10:  V6: He has made God known to His disciples ( to “know His Name” is to know Him as He is, His true identity – think of Moses in Exodus 3:13-14.). They are the ones His Father has given Him – the sovereign grace of God in salvation – and they have received…


Day 25 – John 17:1-5

Read John 17:1-5: Introduction: Sometimes called the “High Priestly Prayer”, it is made in the shadow of the Cross, as Jesus pours out His heart to the Father, and takes up some of the themes of these chapters we have looked at. V1: Jesus looks up to heaven – the normal Jewish posture of prayer…


Day 24 – John 16:28-33

Read John 16:28-33 V28: Jesus came to this world from the Father, with whom He had been One from all eternity (John 1:1-2) In the wonder of gospel grace, God sent His Son, eternally one with Him, to be the redeemer of sinners like us. ( John 3:16) Now it is His hour to leave…


Day 23 – John 16:22-27

Read John 16:22-27: V22: First, their sorrow will turn to great and lasting joy when they meet the Risen Lord. This joy, both for these first disciples and all Christ’s redeemed people, cannot be taken from them, it will be eternal joy, with Him! Do we know the joy of the Lord, whatever our outward circumstances,…


Day 22 – John 16:16-22

Read John 16:16-21: V16: There is surely a double meaning, or as its often put, a near and a distant horizon here. ‘The little while’ when they will see Him no more speaks first of when He is seized, taken to that mockery of a trial, and crucified ; but then, of His Ascension into…


Day 21 – John 16:12-15

Read John 16:12-15 V12: In fact His earthly ministry to them is almost at an end. Surely, the “many things” yet to be said, which they cannot yet ‘bear‘ ( understand ) points to the ministry of the Spirit after Pentecost, and to the completion of Scripture under His inspiration. V13: Jesus confirms this, the Spirit of…
