Verse of the day (Colossians 2:6-7)
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
If no one can live or be like Jesus Christ, why should we even try?
Because of a realization that the Christ spirit he is a part of our lives now. It was established at our conversion. We were given that assurance that there will come a day we shall see and be like Jesus. Until that day we are daily in a battle with the part of fallen humanity that doesn’t want to submit to the authority of Christ’s spirit. We were led to the word of his truth. In is word we found him because his word is all truth and knowledge. We know the truth and strive for it by Faith. Yes even knowing that we are not totally like Jesus. We pray and fast and earnestly seek him.
The promise will be fulfilled through his Spirit Jesus the Christ.
We know we have a better life ahead yet we know until that day there will be a struggle. A struggle of flesh and blood. The converted christian has victory and a future. The person who knows and has felt the presence of the spirit awaits the coming of the Lord and yearns to be with him forever in a that glorious body.
A person who has not known that presence and accepted the call shall not receive from the Lord.
I today am totally glad I had the opportunity to hear his voice and call on my life. I will go through this day in peace knowing that it is finished and I will be with him in heaven.
Hebrews 7:27 “He offered himself”
My goal today is to share that good news.
