May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 9 – 10.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last – and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16
Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.
We are God’s new creation and God continues to work in us to make us what He wants us to be. To do this God uses three tools.
- Word of God
As we read God’s Word, understand it, meditate on it, and feed on it, the Word goes to work in our lives to cleanse us and nourish us. As we pray, God’s Spirit works in us to release power. And as we suffer, the Spirit of God ministers to us. Suffering drives us back to the Word and prayer, and the cycle is repeated. Adapted from Warren W. Wiersbe’s Bible Commentary.
