Day 12: Knowing Your Purpose

Read: Start by reading John 1:22–23 out loud. 

Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’ ” —John 1:22–23 NIV

Day 11: What I’m Not

Read: Start by reading John 1:19–21 out loud. 

Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”

They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” 

He said, “I am not.” 

“Are you the Prophet?”

He answered, “No.”

—John 1:19–21 NIV

Day 10: Making Him Known

Read: Start by reading John 1:18 out loud a few times. 

“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known” (John 1:18 NIV).
