Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord my God for a New Day! I Thank the Lord that even through all crisis, His Plan is made Complete. I Thank the Lord by His Hand, I am able to come and serve Him Daily!
It is Written, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
“ I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live….” In a world always seeking the meaning of life, we as Christians have been called to death. Everything we have grown to know tells us that we should live for the moment and seize the day! For whatever our sense’s lead us, we are to follow. The world says follow your heart or the heart wants what it wants. But we know it is written that the ways of the Lord is not the ways of men. “The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God…” We are no longer our flesh. For to long we have been lead and pulled each way by emotions and fleshly urges. God commands us by His Word to be followers of Christ and to Live Christ like. To be Christian at its root definition is literally to be followers of Christ. We do this because The Father so loved the World, He gave His only Son! With this life of Death, we shall inherit ever lasting life! Death of the Flesh is not the end, but the beginning of understanding. The Father’s love is always with you and always remember, “…who loved me and gave himself for me,” is the same one who seeks to bring into His Eternal kingdom!
Prayer: Father, I pray that today we make a stance to no longer be the same. For too many years we have forsaken you and my prayer is that those who have been called, rise and talk their place!
