Him up on it!
Feb 24 TLH 343 (LSB 395) John 5:16-30 Jesus taught that His authority was equal to the Father’s because He was equal to the Father. “Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.”
Feb 25 WS 720 (LSB 413) John 5:31-47 The Jewish leaders would not accept Jesus’ testimony, so He gave them the testimony of John and of the Father too. He desired their repentance even though they hated Him.
