Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
From the Apostle Peter…Grazing in 1 Peter this morn..
1 Peter 1:1-2 NIV, Peter, inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, wrote to us To God’s ‘elect‘, strangers in the world, scatted throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
While we are grazing on these few choice morsels of spiritual food this morning…let’s really chew on it and get all of the spiritual nutritional value out of it 😊
So here…Peter says to us that all 3 persons of the God-Head…the Trinity…are at work in our redemption. God chooses us…the Holy Spirit then comes to live inside us and constantly is our champion to lead us away from sin and into the ability to be obedient to the life that we as believers should live…The Spirit is at work in our ‘sanctification’ process….and thus God’s choice to choose us and the Spirit’s work to complete us all comes through the sacrificial work of Jesus Christ on the cross…the sprinkling of His blood makes it all possible for us to become God’s choice…God’s children. And Peter sums up the awe and wonder and eternal wow factor of ‘all that’ by saying… Grace and peace be yours in abundance…in abundance. We have the whole God-Head team at work from beginning to end to bring us to our eternal home in heaven with our heavenly Father while we live here in this temporary realm. Wow.
Dear Lord… Thank you, thank you for choosing us before we were ever created…and then placing us in Your Son to make us Your righteousness…and then for giving us of Your Spirit to protect us and lead and guide us to our eternal home which is in heaven. Thank you that you think and plan in abundance and that you do not leave us here to figure all this out on our home. You know how crippled we are and weak we are because of the effect of Sin. Thank you that Jesus overcame the effect and power of sin..He overcame death…and we become your righteousness and you give us eternal life. Help us to cooperate with the Spirit that is at work in us and to make it our goal and aim everyday to please you with our life. Amen
