Daily Light – Nov 20, 2017

Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14  “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

The Reign of the King…  it is ‘within’ you. 

Luke 17:20,21 NIV    Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied.  “The Kingdom of God does not come with our careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,” because the kingdom of God is within you.”

John 3:1-7 NIV Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council.  He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God.  For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.” In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”      How can a man be born when he is old  Nicodemus asked.  “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”  Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth no once can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘you must be born again.’

Colossians 1:24-27 NIV    Paul writes “I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.  I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness — the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints.  To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles, the glorious riches of the mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

When we come to the cross of Christ and ‘repent’….God responds and forgives and accepts us into His eternal family.   The Spirit of God/Jesus, the Holy Spirit, then comes to live inside our spirit to give us ‘new’ birth…’so that’ we can become partakers of His eternal kingdom and become empowered to be ambassadors for the King.  New birth through the power of the Spirit is what let’s us ‘see’ and ‘know’ that we are His..that we are safe in Him…sharing with Him ‘now’ in His eternal Kingdom..which is now…and which is coming…and which will always be.   Christ in you!   Christ in You.  ‘See it?’

Father..I thank you that you chose us to be partakers of your divine nature (2 Peter 1:4)…that we can have Christ live inside us ‘so that’ we can be formed into His image ‘so that’ we can have the ability to please you with our lives.   Help us to cherish the gift of Christ in us.  Empower us to ‘go’ and tell others.  Amen
